FAT ALBERT AND THE COSBY KIDS!! From the Original Super Rare Vinyl!
DADDYKIN HAD THIS TO SAY WHEN HE SHARED THIS LP:
"Hi. I say that about this album because it is one of the most scarce bubblegum LPs that I have ever encountered. I honestly didn't know it existed for ages, as is the case with many fans of the show. I always knew about the Bill Cosby comedy records about Fat Albert, but I craved a TV soundtrack with the theme and the songs that I heard the Junkyard Gang perform each Saturday morning. Well thanks to eBay, I discovered in recent years that such an album was actually recorded and released in 1973, Paramount Records #PAS-6053 (thanks to Rob G for this info!). The details are foggy to me even today. A google search brings up little or no info on the LP. I always notice the eBay listings too late, but when fate produces a copy it always goes for $100-$200. I still don't have the vinyl, but I give you a "collectible" rip straight from the vinyl. While there are audio CDs in the Fat Albert DVD sets that give you all this stuff now, I still find this elusive slab of vinyl more appealing. Album cover artwork (as much as I have) is included in the folder. Any more info on this record would be appreciated. Enjoy!! TRACK LISTING: 01. FAT ALBERT THEME, 02. DON'T LOOK DOWN ON A SMALL GUY, 03. THE HERO, 04. FRIENDS, 05. PLAYIN' HOOKEY, 06. FOUR EYES, 07. WE'RE ALL TOGETHER, 08. BEGGING BENNY, 09. THE HOSPITAL, 10. STAGE FRIGHT, 11. THE BULLY."
