Foreign Record

Hi, does anyone know where this record belongs? I don't know it and ain't sure if there is an US or Uk version [1] (Pino 21:24, 13 October 2008 (UTC))

That looks like the French edition of the Muppet Movie soundtrack. We have one on the bottom of the page. -- Ken (talk) 01:59, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Foreign 45's

If anybody finds foreign 45's, can you let me know if they refer to an album that's a foreign pressing of an American album, and also mention that number if you can? I'd like to collect all the information we can. Thanks! -- Ken (talk) 06:19, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

Speaking of the French 45s... I think it's amazing that Wendy found them, but I'm wondering if we ought to split them out into their own international page.
I know that we have both US and UK albums on the page, but I think The Muppet Show Music Hall and Muppet Show Music Album are relevant to the discography in a way that other international albums wouldn't be. Those are releases that didn't come out in the US at all, and including them on this page tells a coherent story. The Muppet Show Music Album tracks were released later in the US, mixed in with tracks from The Muppet Show (album) and The Muppet Show 2. They were all part of the same production, even if two of them never happened to get an American release.
But I think international releases of albums that were also released in the US should be on a separate page. That includes the French 45s, the UK release of The Muppet Movie (soundtrack), etc. If we include those here, then eventually we'll also have the Belgian version, the Spanish version and the Australian version, and on and on. What do folks think? -- Danny (talk) 19:45, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
Before I begin, should we move this to the Current Events page as to whether we want to have one or more international charts?
Anyway, yeah, I agree with Danny. Those UK Muppet Show albums in my mind belong with the US ones because they were never made in the US. But if we put those together, why should we split up the UK movies? I feel they should be together by country. Maybe have all US and UK stuff together. We can actually have the UK show albums where they are now, and just put the UK movie stuff inside the US page. For example, we can make a note of the alternate UK Muppet Movie cover and catalog number on the US movie soundtrack page. That way, people looking for all UK stuff won't have to go to 2 places. This could also be used to keep the US and Canadian Fraggle stuff together. Then we could make an international section, broken down by country, and each country's items would be together. Does this all make sense? -- Ken (talk) 06:02, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
Okay, I moved the French 45s to Muppet Show 45s (France), and created an International Muppet Albums category. -- Danny (talk) 15:17, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

One final Question on the Caper 45

Mupmov8trk

The back cover says that the album was available on Atlantic Records and Tapes, followed by SD/TP/CS 16047. Does anybody know if the TP refers to an 8-track, or a reel to reel? (I can hear all the kids in high school going, "Huh?") -- Ken (talk) 05:38, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

A quick Google tells us [2] [3] that Atlantic used the TP designation for 8-tracks. So then I had to check Ebay and I found this, which I'm currently parking here for a day until I get the time to add it and the John Denver Christmas tape I found to the page. Mark (talk) 06:43, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Ooh, that is sweet like candy. I love it! -- Danny (talk) 12:35, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Wow! Nothing brings back the Summer of '79 like a Muppet 8-track! -- Ken (talk) 04:58, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Steppin' Out With A Star 45

Gmcsingle

I know, it does seem unlikely that the single would have the exact duplicate cover of the LP, with no new text or anything. But just look at this picture. Weird, huh? (Still, not as weird as the "Amadogus" single I found on ebay, b/w "Fraggle Rock Rock".) Mark (talk) 13:11, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Oh, good find! Do we want to put that picture in the article? I think it's cool. -- Danny (talk) 14:01, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
Hey, I'm glad somebody had a picture of it! (I'm going to have to get a digital camera.) Yeah, it's the exact same picture, even down to the SD 16047 on the right hand side. I guess that was cheaper than changing it to 3829, which is on the back cover. If you're really geeky, you'll notice that the 45 sleeve is actually cut off before the same place on the LP. Under the headline that says, "London Fashion Queen Unruffled" (which is partially obscured by torn paper and Fozzie's tie), on the LP, there's a line of text that begins, "Thank goodness they didn't steal my Baseball Diamond", and now I have to pull it out, because I can't remember the rest of it. -- Ken (talk) 05:19, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Muppet Show Fan Club Flexidisc

The link for this is red. Was somebody else working on a place for other Muppet Show Fan Club stuff? I didn't know if I should build a record page for this, or if it will go to the Fan Club section. Is this rare enough to warrant a transcript? Also, is there more than one version of the paper backing? This one looks red under the blue record, and I have one that's got a regular black and white picture. Or is that just the way the picture came out? Thanks. -- Ken (talk) 04:55, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

We do have a page on The Muppet Show Fan Club... I think it would be great to have a transcript, though, so if you want to use that redlink for a transcript, that would be cool. It's a rare, fun thing. -- Danny (talk) 14:01, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I was kind of confused why this record didn't link to the Fan Club, or something about it. I didn't want to step on the work of whoever put the flexidisc up, because I didn't. Actually, do you think it would be redundant to mention this record on the record page, and on the Fan Club page, and then have them link to the same page describing it? Or how did you want to set up the links? Meanwhile, I'll start the transcript. You're not going to believe this, but I wrote a transcript when I was 10 years old! I wish I still had it! I did find my certificate, though, from 10-29-79! -- Ken (talk) 05:31, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Additions

Can somebody put The Frog Prince in the chart? Otherwise, it looks great! -- ErnieBert 07:12, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Done! -- Brad D. (talk) 07:26, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, Brad! I'm Ken! It's nice to meet you! Can somebody build a section for Muppet singles, to match the Sesame Street singles? I'll have to pull my 45's this weekend, but I know there were least 4 or 5. Thanks. -- ErnieBert 08:17, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
I think the singles can go on this page, if there's only 4 or 5. Right now, the page has "Wipe Out", which was a single, and "The Muppet Show Music Hall", which was an EP. Sesame Street Discography and Sesame Street Singles are both huge, so combining them wouldn't be useful, but this page can accommodate both. We also ought to consider a Fraggle Rock Discography and Bear in the Big Blue House Discography, if anybody has the time and inclination. -- Danny (talk) 16:30, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
Okay, then can somebody put in 2 blank spaces under The Muppet Movie, 1 blank space under The Great Muppet Caper, and 1 blank space under Manhattan? That should get me started. Oh yeah, please start a Fraggle Discography, because I have one Columbia LP from that. Also, can anybody make a space for the first pressing of Bremen, to match The Frog Prince? The white cover is the re-issue. Thanks! -- ErnieBert 20:32, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
Rather than do that for you, let me teach you how to do it. It's actually a really easy copy-and-paste job. Just go into the edit screen, copy one of the rows, and paste it where you want an extra row. Then you just replace the fields with the image and the information that you want. That's all there is to it!
You can do the same thing for the whole page -- just copy the table from this page onto Fraggle Rock Discography, and change the info in the table.
That's a great trick in general, too, anywhere on the wiki. If you don't know how to do a particular bit of formatting, then just go to a page that has that formatting, and copy and paste it to wherever you want it. That's how everybody does it -- if I had to start a table from scratch, I'd never remember how to do it. I copy and paste every time. -- Danny (talk) 20:43, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, when I first saw the coding, it looked like algebra to me, but once I figured out the little brackets around the data, I could copy and re-type what I needed. Thanks! -- ErnieBert 04:55, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
