Oh my... just looking at that track listing... oy vey.

It almost gives you a sugar rush reading it. And I LOL'ed at the "Up With People" comment. Oh, Up With People, will you ever learn...

See, now it's stuff like that that should be re-released onto CD.....

Went to Virgin Megastore last night (Adventurers Club was closed until 9pm and during those times, Virgin becomes my local library. I'm up to page 131 of my most current book). Walked through the kids' CD section. When did all of those karaoke CDs come out?!?!?! And the godawful Disney Channel CDs have just exploded in number. SIGH.

Yeah, the Kids of the Kingdom was basically the name of the group of people performing whatever show was going on. They did the Disneyland/Disney World is your land/world shows, and pretty much every other castle or stage show during the 70's & 80's. Constantly rotating cast, but same name...

The Buena Vista STER 4045 LP will certainlyl give you a toothache! I would love to find the other "Entertainment Division" LP though!
 
am interesting side note on that STER-4045 album; one of the female performers is Barnette Ricci.............a long time Disneyland entertainment choreographer.......and one of the creators of Fantasmic!

I loved Kids of the Kingdom!

Their last shows (if I recall) were Every Day's a Holiday and Disneymania.

Cinderella's Surprise Celebration did away with the Kids.

I also miss the days when the live stage shows were always accompanied by Live bands. I remember the "pit" being set up at audience level in front of the Cinderella Castle stage -- it was so cool to be sitting in the front "row" on the hot pavement watching the band members tune their instruments getting ready for the show to start.

I loved Kids of the Kingdom, but BOY, did I NOT cry when "Every Day's A Holiday" was finally retired. That show lasted FOREVER....
