Big Bird Sings! is one in a series of character-centered Sesame Street albums released in 1974. Although some of the material comes from the earlier Columbia and Warner Brothers albums, some tracks appear here for the first time, including Big Bird reading some of his poems. Later editions of this album remove two tracks, The "J" Poem and Everyone Likes Ice Cream, and replace them with I Just Adore Four and A Really Good Feeling.

This album was changed yet again when it was reissued as part of the 2-LP set Just Friends. See that album's page for details.

The second edition of this album was released on CD for the first time on the 3-disc set Old School: Volume 1, on March 23, 2010, along with The Sesame Street Record and Bert & Ernie Sing-Along.

Notes

  • Although a song title of "If I Could Fly" appears on the front cover, no such song appears on the album.
  • Everyone Likes Ice Cream contains a confusing edit at the beginning, of Big Bird asking "Is everybody ready?", spliced in from the beginning of "Hee Hee Ha Ha". The rest of the track is the soundtrack of the song as broadcast, where Caroll Spinney plays one of the "three friends", who are actually siblings. Some of the dialogue establishing them as siblings was cut from the track.
  • Though the second version of the album is used for Old School: Volume 1 CD set, some promotional materials, as well as the track listing on Windows Media Player, mistakenly use the first version's track list.
