Image scan request

Hey fellow editors, would one of you who owns the original release of the soundtrack be so kind and get a scan of the booklet image spread showing the main Muppet cast in a recording studio? It would make a great addition to illustrate either this section where we talk about the cut songs (towards the bottom), or to the soundtrack section. Besides, I think it might be the only time that we see Betina and Belinda as "actors," outside of their movie roles, making it a fun image to be added to their character page as well. — Julian (talk) 13:18, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

Also, if anybody knows whether the 2005 edition was on cassette, that would be great, too! -- Ken (talk) 19:06, May 22, 2010 (UTC)
Got it. —Scott (talk) 01:00, May 26, 2010 (UTC)
Yay, that's great! Thanks Scott! What's odd is that Peter must've recorded his vocals separately. Sheesh, what a diva! ;D — Julian (talk) 02:27, May 26, 2010 (UTC)

Cut Songs status

Can we get some sources or clarification regarding the cut songs "which were recorded but never filmed?" According to a discussion awhile back, Scott reports from Karen Falk that the "songs were cut from the script before filming even began." The current text seems to imply that they were recorded specifically for use in the film, and then abandoned (ala "Born in a Trunk"); but from Scott's statement, it sounds equally likely that they were recorded as sort of "extras" to supplement the CD (a by no means uncommon practice), after the decision had been made not to include them in the film. Scott or anyone else, can this be clarified one way or the other? -- Andrew Leal (talk) 01:11, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

The songs were still a part of the film when the musicians and vocal talent went to the studio to record them. By the time filming began, the songs were cut before those scenes were shot. Rather than let the songs go to waste, the songs were included on the soundtrack. —Scott (talk) 03:36, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
Aha. Good to know for sure, and the text on the song pages can be adjusted (right now they just say they weren't included in the film, and it's left vague). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 05:05, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Songs in the overture

Should we include what songs make up the overture? They are "It feels like Christmas", "When love is gone/found", and "Thankful heart" —Vincent Liu 04:41, April 23, 2012 (UTC)
