DoubleSuited1952 karma

What's up Cookie Monster, thanks for doing this. I own the seminal 1983 album Born to Add on vinyl (because vinyl sounds better), and personally think your song Hey Food is the best cut on the album. Question: why hasn't the Sesame Street cast put out more albums? Or, if they have (and please don't take offense), what do you feel is the reason the cast creatively peaked, musically, in the early 1980s (Sesame Street Fever is also an excellent album)?

Thanks. Longtime fan.

Me_CookieMonster2624 karma

Hey! Hey! Me still singing and think me sound great!
