Sesamstrasse Buch und Schallplatte (Sesame Street Book and Record) is the first Sesamstrasse soundtrack album produced in Germany. It compiles songs and sketches, re-recorded but very near to the original voice track from the show. It includes dubbed voices for Bob and Susan. The German street scenes, and related human cast, would not arrive until 1977. This album was also released as a cassette. Two tracks from this album were also released on a single.
