This is the reborn TJB's peak of popularity, the music featured in a television special featuring Jim Henson's "Muppets", sponsored by Sentry, which aired in September of 1974. Alpert and TJB would also make an appearance on "The Midnight Special". There are more off-beat or original tracks on this, casting the band in a new and more adventurous light. "Carmine", "Vento Bravo" and Chick Corea's "Seņor Mouse" allow the band to stretch more than the TJB of old, and emphasizing more improvisation by the group members.

It is rumored that tracks were recorded for a third TJB reunion album. A couple of those songs were featured on various television specials and released as 45 RPM single B-sides, but they've never surfaced on any TJB album yet. After Coney Island, Alpert would disband the TJB and begin doing projects under his own name. In 1986, the band would reunite.
