Originally released last year as a TARGET exclusive, Sesame Street: Singing With the Stars hits the streets this week for non-exclusive wide-release. Since we've had this one here at Rock Father HQ for awhile, this is a perfect opportunity to throw down some virtual ink on the subject.
Updated 3/20/12 - An attorney and a member of Jason Mraz' management team contacted me about this album tonight, wrongfully accusing me of distributing unauthorized music. This is a news item - just as there are many other news items on this site. Making an assumption without research is foolish. The Rock Father™ is a music-centric ''Daddy Blog & Website,'' and there is nothing on this website that should in any way indicate that I am a distributor of music. I receive press releases and decide which albums to cover - just as I've done at other websites, papers, and magazines in the past. You can check out the Music for Kids or the Music for Grown-ups sections for other similarly-formatted pieces of music news. If people either can't read, nor properly comprehend what they're reading, that's not my problem. The original news item continues unedited below this text. - James
Updated Again: Since ABC News Radio has covered the album as well, perhaps these members of Jason Mraz' ''team'' will attack them as well? I somehow doubt it. - James
