Four new albums have been released on vinyl and are available exclusively at Cracker Barrel.
Again, they only include songs that have been released on past albums, but with these being store exclusives,I guess it makes sense they'd only use existing tracks.
In the last year, we've gotten two new Cookie Monster and Grover albums, and both are exclusively comprised of material from existing albums. I don't know too much off-hand but I think many of the same songs are on both (I know C is for Cookie is on both recent Cookie Monster albums). And I think both characters have a large enough back catalog of album-released songs for two albums to have completely different material (but what album spotlighting the best of Cookie Monster wouldn't include C is for Cookie?).
As I've been thinking this morning, it's interesting with Sesame Street's recent DVD and audio releases. In the past year or two, it seems they don't want to release any pre-HD material on DVD with the exception of classic Elmo's World as bonus features (not even classic early segments as bonus features), and with new albums it seems they only want to include what's already been mastered for audio (and I thought a press release said they intended on releasing newer stuff soon). Recent DVDs give us more recent material while the recent albums give us more classics (albeit classic stuff that's already been on albums in the past and could probably be downloaded individually on iTunes).
Not sure if this has been mentioned yet but, I would love for them to release the instrumentals of a bunch of their songs, because those are AMAZING! For a while, we got to hear them briefly at the end of the videos SST uploaded.
Also, this is less likely, but I also want clean audio of various music cues, including the newer ones. The various versions of the theme that play at the start of each street story, or the cue that plays whenever Cookie Monster eats cookies, etc.
