Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood premiered on television over five decades ago. While to some it seems like just yesterday when it was brand new, it’s heartening to know how much it has been a part of the lives of countless children and adults who experienced and learned from the show over the decades.
While its staying power never lapsed, Academy®- and Grammy®-winning director Morgan Neville’s 2018 documentary, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, reawakened our love for Fred Rogers, and introduced a new generation to him. With the upcoming November release of A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood (starring Tom Hanks as Fred Rogers), the beloved Mister Rogers and his neighborhood will once again be front and center in the hearts, minds, and ears of everyone.
It’s Such A Good Feeling: The Best Of Mister Rogers collects 23 songs from the beloved broadcaster (backed by long-time collaborator and pianist Johnny Costa, Carl McViker on bass, and percussionist Bobby Rawsthorne). Containing classics like “Won’t You Be My Neighbor,” “You Are Special,” and the title track, this release also features five previously unissued tracks including the show’s original closer, “Tomorrow.”
CD packaging contains photos, an introductory note from Neville, and an essay from Pittsburgh television critic (and long-time USA Today contributor) Robert Bianco.
Two weeks after the release of It’s Such A Good Feeling, four digital-only album releases from Mister Rogers will also be made available: Bedtime, You’re Growing, You Are Special, and Coming And Going.
So, hop on the trolley for the Land Of Make Believe, because it really is such a good feeling.
