Rowlfing


In getting that image of Rowlf the Muppet Dog the other day, I came upon this piece of trivia: in 1993, BMG released a Rowlf solo album entitled "Ol' Brown Ears is Back" and consisting of 14 songs recorded in 1984 by Jim Henson.  The album contains some classics, including Billy Joel's "New York State of Mind" and Paul Williams' "Bein' Green"; and what's striking is the real feeling in the singing.  Muppet though he may be, Rowlf's got soul.
