I know there's Sesame Street discography already, but would there be enough info to warrant Sesame Street Records, the branch of CTW Shimkin formed? -- Zanimum 19:07, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

That's what I was thinking. I've been trying to find anything about the history of Sesame Street records on the Web, and that's one of the things that led me here. Last year, a book came out about the history of Walt Disney Records, and I sure wish something similar could be done with SS Records. I guess it's kind of a tiny label compared to the "majors". Not counting re-issues, there are only about 70 unique titles over a 10-year period. I've always wondered what happened after 1984, when everything just seemed to come to a dead stop. And this was 6 years before Jim passed away, so I'm sure something else must have happened. Between 1984 and 1991, there were some sporadic tape only issues and re-issues, but they were hard to find.ERNIEBERT 02:58, 28 February 2007 (UTC)
I think that's a great idea... I might have some stuff from the CTW archives. -- Danny (talk) 13:24, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
Hey, Danny, what kinds of stuff would they have? I'd love to read about it. I'd love to know the whole history behind the record division. Having seen tons of SS Records, I've always been intrigued by how (and why) they began at Columbia, went to WB for 1 album, came back to Columbia, and then finally broke off on their own. And I've always wondered how the label was exactly set up. It's never actually called Sesame Street Records. That just kind of became the nickname for the label since the label logo on the records is the Sesame Street sign. But on the back it'll say things like Children's Records of America, and Distinguished Productions, at various points in their history. And as far as I now, I've never seen either of those 2 companies ever be involved with records for anybody else, so were these companies part of CTW? I'm going to post a short version of this question on the main discography board, since I don't think that the people who are not record people are going to know who Arthur Shimkin was, so this open question may not catch their eye. -- ErnieBert 07:16, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
