What's the story?
From its ambitious title to the cheery cover art -- Big Bird and Elmo, mouths wide open in front of a recording mike -- SESAME STREET PLATINUM: ALL-TIME FAVORITES sends the message that it will show youngsters a good time. And the album does not disappoint. In \"Lambaba,\" the Count (with The Singing, Dancing Lambs) counts lambies up to 40. Grover offers a gentle introduction to independence in \"What Do I Do When I'm Alone?\" Set to a terrific jazz beat, \"Put Down the Duckie\" is just plain fun. Best of all, the tunes are simple, upbeat, memorable, amusing, and often educational.
Is it any good?
Just about everyone's favorite Sesame Street song is included here, from the TV show theme song to Jim Henson (as Ernie) singing "Rubber Duckie," to Prairie Dawn praising the beauty of "Little Things." The album's 20 songs cover a variety of moods and tempos, all with the distinctive stamp of Sesame Street, assuring parents that their kids will be entertained in a way that's creative and instructive.
