release dates

On these individual websites, or is there more confusion over release dates (again...)? ---- Jesse (talk) 00:06, February 24, 2010 (UTC)
This is a bulleted list of links leading to websites that report release dates for this product. —Scott (talk) 00:38, February 24, 2010 (UTC)
So, more confusion? ---- Jesse (talk) 00:39, February 24, 2010 (UTC)
Okay, 2 outnumber 1. So it's definitely gonna be released next month? ---- Jesse (talk) 00:46, February 24, 2010 (UTC)
It's likely that Amazon just has the wrong date. —Scott (talk) 00:47, February 24, 2010 (UTC)
Alrighty-dighty-then!. Thanks for answering my question, Scott! ---- Jesse (talk) 00:50, February 24, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, the Amazon page is all full of mistakes. They've got a date that's so far away, that they normally wouldn't make a page this soon. They've also got a picture of the Old School Vol. 1 DVD up there right now. I hope they fix the page as the date gets closer! -- Ken (talk) 02:16, February 24, 2010 (UTC)
Amazon finally fixed the date on their site. The picture is still wrong, though. -- Ken (talk) 04:56, March 4, 2010 (UTC)


I can't find this on Amazon anymore. Has anybody heard if it's been cancelled or pushed back? -- Ken (talk) 01:46, October 22, 2009 (UTC)

The sheet posted on Greg's Twitter appears to have been a pitch circulated internally to get funding to produce the set. It was never actually scheduled for release. I've heard from Koch Records on the matter and they're saying that there are no plans at this time. However, Carol-Lynn Parente is talking about releasing some old albums to iTunes in current interviews, so we may see something yet. —Scott (talk) 19:57, November 10, 2009 (UTC)
That's too bad. It looked like promo material to show retailers and take orders. It had a bar code, a catalog number, a release date and everything. Oh well, iTunes is better than nothing, but I hope we get something new soon. -- Ken (talk) 03:25, November 11, 2009 (UTC)
Okay, so in the continuing stooooory about this set, it looks like it's back on! The catalog number was going to be KOC-CD-4783 last year, and I'm putting it here until we get confirmation of what the final one is going to be. -- Ken (talk) 02:56, February 3, 2010 (UTC)


I don't think we need a page for this. Everything we have to say about the albums can be done on the individual pages under the re-releases section. If we need notes for the collection, they can be added to the Old School disambig page. —Scott (talk) 03:00, September 29, 2009 (UTC)

Well, to me, this is worthy of its own page the same way Letters, Numbers and Signs, Sesame Street Gold!, Somebody Come and Play on a Rainy Day, Bert & Ernie: Side By Side, The Count Presents Numbers, Just the Two of Us, Just Friends, and Fraggle Rockin': A Collection are. These are all sets made up of complete albums. Plus the page will have the completed infobox and a picture when it comes out. -- Ken (talk) 03:09, September 29, 2009 (UTC)
We have a page for Fraggle Rockin': A Collection which is basically the same kind of thing. I think this page is worthwhile. -- Brad D. (talk) 03:12, September 29, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I think this is worthwhile. It's an interesting project in and of itself, which reflects an interest in mining the Sesame Street past for the adult fans. We'll want to link to this page on Current Events (and Twitter!) as the release date gets closer. -- Danny@fandom (talk) 00:31, September 30, 2009 (UTC)
