A couple weeks ago I decided I was going to listen to every album in my collection in (roughly) alphabetical order. That meant starting with my voluminous AC/DC collection. Last week I had a whole day of B-52’s and Kate Bush. Yesterday I finally made it though my Duran Duran records.
That means today is brought to you by the letter E and we’re starting with one of my favorite records from when I was 5, “Having Fun with Ernie and Bert.” Seriously, this is one of the cutest records you can imagine. It’s premise is a house party that Ernie and Bert are throwing for their friends so all your 70s favorites are there.. Big Bird, Grover, Oscar, Prairie Dawn and Sweetums. The inside of the jacket has a map for one of the stories that you need to follow, transparent colour wheels for a song about mixing colours. It also ends with their classic “Pick up and clean up and tidy the floor.”
No, Elmo wasn’t invited.
