An Afternoon With Johnson & Friends

In 1992, a Johnson & Friends album was produced, and released on CD and cassette by ABC Music.

The album tells the story of the narrator (Paul Bertram), who places a tape recorder in Michael's room, hoping that the toys will leave some sort of message or recording behind. The toys are intrigued by the tape recorder, and sing twelve original songs.

 

 

This album is considered to be the series' soundtrack, as many of the songs on the album were later used in the series.
