Album notes

Welcome to "Sesame Mucho!" (¡Bienvenidos a "Sesame Mucho!") The Children's Television Workshop is proud to present what we believe is the first nationally distributed bilingual recording for the millions of children of both Spanish and English speaking backgrounds. The songs of "Sesame Mucho," as performed by the Sesame Street cast and our Latin guest stars (Jose Feliciano, Vikki Carr and Malo), combine the richness of two cultures with the magic of childhood. Young and old alike will delight in this unique musical and educational experience. After listening to "Sesame Mucho," we're sure you'll agree with Big Bird and Luis that:

"No matter what your language,
No matter what your name
The ways people feel can be the same."

This educational product was created in cooperation with the Children's Television Workshop, producers of Sesame Street. Children do not have to watch the television show to benefit from this record. Workshop revenues from this product will be used to help support CTW educational products.
