Top 40 Sesame Street Hits – Original Cast Record

Can you tell me how to get, how to get to:

Sesame Street premiered on November 10, 1969, and entertained children for literally decades! Jim Henson and his Muppet creatures have endeared themselves to generation after generation. From the cast of zany characters came one who is arguably loved most of all:

“Are you talking about me, Bert?”

Jim Henson performed the character of Ernie when the show debuted and was likely still doing so when this record was recorded in 1972, just three years later.

Below you can listen to Jim/Ernie sing all about Imagination. Get ready to close your eyes:

This record was released by Janico Music Inc. which was a music publishing company owned by Joe Raposo. It became affiliated to ASCAP. Top 40 Sesame Street Hits was produced in cooperation with Children’s Records of America (CRA).

Side B features another song by Ernie entitled Tiger Hunt:

It’s fun to hear the songs but also to be treated to the ongoing gags between Bert and Ernie. Also having the voices of the original cast is also very special!

For more Sesame Street fun, check out my earlier post, a DVD Review, of Being Elmo. Again, arguably also the most loved character on the Street!
