I was browsing for pictures of one of my favorite singers, Mahalia Jackson, and as I was searching, I came across your posting of Mahalia on Episode 0029. I know that there are a few volumes of SESAME STREET: OLD SCHOOL, but I don't believe the episode with Mahalia is included. Would you happen to know for sure if she is featured on the DVD set? If she isn't, would there happen to be a way to acquire it? I know how it is when it comes to old footage/recordings and copyrights, etc, so any help you could give would definitely be appreciated.
Hi, Dwayne! I love Mahalia Jackson as well. That particular episode isn't on DVD or anywhere else, *but* the good news is they reused the segment in other episodes. See Episode 0056, which you can buy and download from iTunes (either as part of Sesame Street Classics: Volume 1, or as a single episode for about three dollars or whatever). Hope this helps!
