The marriage of pop music and children's television has borne some serendipitous fruit over the years, from Josie & the Pussycats to Schoolhouse Rock. Continuing in that grand tradition is ELMOPALOOZA. This album is the audio companion piece to the TV special that celebrated the Muppets' 30th anniversary. The thing that differentiates this recording from those mentioned above is that it features collaborations between well-known pop stars and the Muppets themselves.
"Caribbean Amphibian" is every bit as much of a natural as it sounds like in this duet by Jimmy Buffett and Kermit the Frog. Sensual R&B vocal group En Vogue are bound to make some monsters very happy with their contribution "I Want A Monster To Be My Friend." Shawn Colvin delivers an unusually affecting performance of "I Want To Live On The Moon," with the vocal assistance of everyone's favorite little orange guy, Ernie.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (3/20/98, p.93) - "This soundtrack to last month's ABC special that celebrated the Muppets' three decades in showbiz is larded with unremarkable renditions of classic Sesame Street tunes....only Shawn Colvin's collaboration with Ernie contains the subtle simplicity that is the cornerstone of all great preschool pop." - Rating: C-
