The CD release of “The Muppet Movie” soundtrack is truer to the film than the vinyl edition issued in 1979 by Atlantic Records (SD 16001). The CD has all eleven titles featured on the album, but with one notable difference. On the CD, “Never Before, Never Again” is the same version featured in the film – not so with the LP. I was somewhat surprised by this discrepancy, but it doesn’t take away from my enjoyment of this CD. The CD booklet also includes lyrics to the songs – another departure from the vinyl edition. This makes an enjoyable album much more enjoyable.

Except that its criminal this hasn’t been re-released!
With the re-release of the movie on DVD I would hope the CD somehow is re-released as this is enjoyable by kids and adults alike. I am disapponted I can’t even get the original “Rainbow Connection” from this on MP3. I distinctly remember Paul Williams composed it. Great music, great cast, great movie.
