The New Zoo Revue

Hey, I'm back again after too long an absence, with this fun album from the classic children's show. I think it was actually two short records put together because the opening and closing theme appear on both sides of the record. I changed it so the open starts the whole record and the closing theme finishes it. These sound like they might have been taken from actual episodes. Anyway, I hope to have at least one more album on here this week, so let's cross our fingers and hope for the best!

Here's the track list:
  1. New Zoo Revue (Open)
  2. School Daze
  3. It's Lonely When You Don't Like School
  4. We Need School
  5. Stay in School
  6. In the Arts
  7. Colors
  8. The Only Art in the World
  9. Cheer Up
  10. New Zoo Revue (Close)

Is this album just the songs or does it have the story with it?

I understand that now, the New Zoo Review is available on DVD, but certainly when they were first broadcast in the 70s, there was no real way to re-experience the show other than through purely audio media. And for a television show recorded and stripped of images, what a surprisingly fresh and joyful record this is! (Oh, and yes: It is two episodes; each broadcast was a half-hour only).

Something about Disneyland putting out a record for this guys just impresses me!

I had this LP as a child. I remember my mother thought the use of the word "jerk" in "It's Lonely When You Don't Like School" was offensive. This was before Cee Lo Green.

Anonymous...this particular album (# STER-1344) has just the songs. Disneyland had also released "The New Zoo Revue" as an illustrated book and LP (# STER-3807) that same year, with "Emmy Jo" narrating the stories connecting the songs.
