joan la barbara vocalizing the alphabet on sesame street in 1977

My dear friend Koen just sent this to me, via our mutual friend Byron, in response to my post on Joan La Barbara. Thanks to them both. I have a palpable memory of the sequence, and particularly the sound, from childhood, but haven’t seen it since. It’s a wonderful fragment from a time when experimental music bled into the mainstream, and planted its seeds in us all.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

    This is somewhat strange for me as I used to watch Sesame Street and always loved the songs (and Grover). I particularly remember the Ladybug Picnic,so when this came up on my reader I had to have a look and I remember this…Strange? Not Joan La Barbara, lets’ make that clear. It’s just all these years later I have finally discovered who created the wonderful vocal soundtrack to my early life…pretty cool.
