As a nipper in the mid 70's, Sesame St was a pinnacle stabalising bolt in my infancy. A Muppet enhanced Disco track always raises a smile, but the 'Pinball Number Count' was total escapism. I'd wait a whole episode, hoping to see the psychedelic animation, which was trippy as hell; Like something off 'The Yellow Submarine'. In 2003, some 30 years later, this slab of wax was like a gift from the gods. My favorite Pointer Sisters track & favorite animation of all time. Strictly Kev was ahead of the Disco re-edit mania that followed on from around 2005.

Pinball Number Count... the number eleven never sounded so crazy. The Pointer Sisters make learning about numbers fun. The fact that these legendary R&B singers were doing educational television is really fortunate. Strictly Kev's mini-mix highlights an outstanding steel pan solo. This is a rare situation where the remix could be better than the original cause this uses all the little songs put together. This song will make a dance party break out in your dam kitchen.

Is this where the term "disco biscuit" came from?

This is the best record I've ever accidently found in my life. I just picked it up last week in Toronto...the cover summoned my wallet. Anyway, I had no idea it was the "12345....678910......1112" that brings back preschool nostalgia like never before. I can't thank Ninja Tune enough for releasing such a wonderful piece of music...Thank You.
