Ken added that this was the last Sesame album released on vinyl... does that mean we were able to prove that The Best of Sesame Street was only released on cassette? —Scott (talk) 06:07, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
- Well, that's kind of a long story. Before I came here, I had never heard of Sight and Sound. Wendy and I have been doing a lot of research in places like Worldcat, to try to generate titles on this label. Apparently they were an educational company that licensed and reissued SS titles between 1983 and 1990, which is between the demise of the SS label, and when Golden took over. According to Worldcat, there had been a record, cassette, and CD of The Best of Sesame Street, but I can't verify the catalog number, because every listing I've seen has the exact same prefix and number, which would be impossible for all three formats. To complicate things, even though Worldcat has listings for an item, sometimes when you get to the individual library's listing, the item will have been discarded. So I'm trying to track down a copy of this in any format, just to try to figure out their numbering system. A lot of libraries seem to have had this on cassette, but they don't have it now. Other libraries seem to have this on CD, but they're in different states, and I need to see if my local libraries will get it through inter-library loan. I may have to pay for it, but I'm willing to do that, because this has been bugging me for about 6 months. So I can't prove that there was a record of The Best of, but I've seen listings for it in the past, but I don't have a catalog number for it that makes sense.
- So meanwhile, the 1984 Christmas album is the last vinyl release on the Sesame Street Records label, and that's what I meant when I wrote it. I know that Follow That Bird came out on LP and cassette in the summer of 1985, so I don't know if you want to call this one or Follow That Bird the "very last" one, or wait until we figure out what's going on with The Best of. Sorry if this is long. I tried to be brief. -- Ken (talk) 03:12, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
