Songs of the Pogo! Now on CD
Finally, the CD that Pogo fans everywhere have been
waiting for. This re-issue has been promised for so long that the first
time I heard about it, it was coming soon on 8-track. Then it was cassette,
but now it is here on CD. This is a re-issue of the 1956 LP record by the
same title. It is wonderful! It is a re-recording of the original 18 songs
from the LP record. It also contains the audio from “No! With Pogo” and
“Can’t, With Pogo”. These were children’s 45 rpm records that came with a
picture book. My
favorite on this CD is the inclusion of some rehearsal tapes that have not
been previously heard. And the “Grand Finale”, Walt Kelly reading the
introduction to The Pogo Papers. This is the source of the
observation on humanity that became “We Have Met the Enemy and He Is Us”.
For all of you that have contacted me over the years looking for Songs of
the Pogo, here is your chance.
There is a great booklet included with essays by: Mark
Burstein, long time collector, author and all around “good guy”, Steve
Thompson, Pogo/Walt Kelly historian and President of the Pogo Fan Club, R.C.
Harvey, comic strip historian and author and information from the people
involved in the production of this CD and the original LP record.
