    I wonder if it's going to be an Amazon exclusive or will be released all over the USA...

    I hope it’ll be on Apple Music so I can be able to listen to it before I buy it. But odds are it probably won’t because the Storyteller soundtrack isn’t on there and both soundtracks are released by the same company so I don’t know if it’s the company’s choice or what.

    Yay! I can't stand when the audio on soundtracks is just lifted straight from the movie or special. Like, why would I want to pay for audios of whole scenes if I can just watch them on Youtube?

    I downloaded it this week, and it is awesome.

    It says on the iTunes page that there's a downloadable booklet if you download the whole album, which I did, but I can't figure out how to open the booklet. I downloaded it on my iPhone, if that matters.

    I was amazed at certain songs sounding longer than I remember them (though I am aware that some songs were shortened in the original broadcast and extended in the 1980 ABC broadcast). I feel like the instrumental at the end of the "Brothers/Our World" reprise is longer than in the special.

    I've read that The Jim Henson Company no longer has original backing tracks for The Muppet Show or Fraggle Rock, meaning audio releases would have to use the versions from the shows (if not re-using tracks that have already been released in audio form), so it is amazing that they've kept the original audio tracks for Emmett Otter after all these years, especially since it wasn't released as an album until now (were there plans for a soundtrack album back in 1977 or so?). Of course it's also amazing Henson kept all the deleted scenes from the original broadcast when it seems they didn't save deleted scenes from a lot of other productions.

    So I hadn't really listened to the song much until recently, but now that I'm listening to "Born in a Trunk" so much now, I now realize that it's about the trunk of a tree that was chopped to make a stage. All this time, I assumed the trunk in the song was the kind of trunk used for transportation, like a suitcase or box.
