Category split?

How would people feel about splitting this category into 2 categories? Keep Album Appearances for albums with actual Muppet audio appearances - either new stuff, like the Muppets on My Christmas or Elmo on A Rosie Christmas; or compilations with actual Muppet recordings, like A Classic Cartoon Christmas or Letters to Santa. And then create Cover Albums for albums with no actual Muppet appearances (but are rather just loving tributes and/or cheap rip-offs of their songs...although they are (usually) licenced to do so, these are closer in nature to a Muppet mention than an appearance by actual Muppets). This category would include albums simply of non-Muppet covers of Muppet songs - like Songs from Sesame Street, Disney’s Ultimate Swashbuckler Collection and Favorite Tunes of the Muppets Show. Thoughts? -- Brad D. (talk) 06:30, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

I think that would make sense. Ken, what do you think? This is more your area. -- Danny@Wikia (talk) 06:36, January 9, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I was actually starting to think about the very same thing. If we go with tracking the large number of covers by other children's record labels, I'd like to keep them together, since there are people who collect in that area. But I also want to keep the LP's that license actual Muppet audio tracks in their own area. So thanks for bringing that up, Brad! -- Ken (talk) 06:41, January 9, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I just think there is a big difference between an album where Kermit or Elmo actually sing on a track and an album where some guys perform their own rendition of one of Kermit or Elmo's songs. -- Brad D. (talk) 06:51, January 9, 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I split them up, and they both look a lot more organized. Thanks! -- Ken (talk) 08:19, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

Jerome Kerns

I am just wondering whether the album 'Jerome Kern The first One Hundred Years' out to be included somewhere in the Muppet wiki, possibly in this category. Seeing as TMS version of Who found its way on there? Emma 20:39, September 5, 2009 (UTC)

If it's the original recording from The Muppet Show 2, yeah! I didn't know about it. -- Ken (talk) 20:46, September 5, 2009 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure from listening to it that it is the one from The Muppet Show 2. Which would make sense, as I believe it was originally recorded for The Muppet Show 2 because for the record it had to use a performer who was under contract with them (or something like that). Emma 20:52, September 5, 2009 (UTC)
Do you have it? There's a copy on eBay right now, but it's sealed, so I can't see the label. Is there a credit giving permission to Arista Records or Henson Associates? If it's the original recording, I'll make a place for it if you can scan the cover. -- Ken (talk) 21:03, September 5, 2009 (UTC)
I do indeed have it, and yes there is a credit for Arista Records for that song. It's definitely the recording of The Muppet Show 2. My scanner isn't big enough to scan the cover for the record box itself, but I can try and take a photograph with my digital camera if that would help. Meanwhile I can scan the key parts of the booklet. Emma 21:09, September 5, 2009 (UTC)
Awesome! Thanks, Emma! I'm always happy to add more records to the wiki! Does it mention if it also was released on tapes and CD's? -- Ken (talk) 21:12, September 5, 2009 (UTC)
As far as I can tell it was only released as records, not tapes or CDs. It was released in 1985 (so CDs weren't around).

Here are some scans from the album booklet http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/File:JKTF100Y1.jpg – Cover for Album Notes booklet http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/File:JKTF100Y2.jpg – Permissions http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/File:JKTF100Y3.jpg – contents of album notes booklet http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/File:JKTF100Y5.jpg – Programme of album booklet Part 1 http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/File:JKTF100Y6.jpg – Programme of album booklet Part 2 For the actual track listing one needs to use the sleeves of each of the records in the set. These won't fit on my scanner. So I will have to photograph them. Along with the box cover. I also have a webpage about it, see: http://www.qsulis.demon.co.uk/Website_Louise_Gold/Jerome_Kern_The_First_100_Years.htm Emma 21:29, September 5, 2009 (UTC)
