Rupert And The Frog Song Sheet Music 1984

Special Offer

Special Offer

This is possibly one of most readily recognised pieces of music written by Sir Paul McCartney.  'We All Stand Together' was the main feature of the animated featurette, 'Rupert and the Frog Chorus' first screened in 1984.  It's popularity was such that it made No. 3 in the Uk Charts and the song was released in a number of formats including picture and even laser discs.

This sheet music is for Piano, Vocal and Guitar and it is not really that difficult to play.  We found it available in print after 29 years!  We have secured a quantity of them just for those budding musicians out there and for those who like a good sing along as well. A nice piece of collectable memorabilia as well, for those who can't tinkle the ivories!

Rupert Takes A Flying Lesson - EXCLUSIVE

RBS 545
!

SALE - UK Price delivered £91.54 (Was £125.00)

This piece was commissioned by The Official Classic Rupert Bear Shop to celebrate Rupert's 85th Birthday on the 8th November 2005. Originally, it was planned to have a full edition size of 2000 and it was due to be released in March 2005. However, on manufacture, quality issues were found, which resulted in it having to be redesigned. This was solely attributed to the complexity of this piece.
After great deliberation and negotiation, it was decided that the edition size would be of 550 pieces only. The reduction in edition size (which is not uncommon) is for this, and this reason alone.
The pieces selected for sale from the manufactured edition have been made at random. The edition numbers are engraved on the base of each piece at time of manufacture. Therefore, the issue numbers for sale could be anything between 1 and 2000. By making the selection in this way, there is no extra benefit to having a low number, as we and Royal Doulton are the only one's who know what issue numbers have released. To verify these facts, each piece purchased will be accompanied with additional documentation confirming that the numbered piece possessed is one of only 550 that exist and that have been released for sale.
Dimensions - Height 13cm Width 20cm
Postage to UK addresses is £7.75. For Europe it is an additional £15.38 and Rest of the World £25.22.  Please note postage for UK and Europe have VAT added.

Now Special Offer to clear last few that remain

A new venture for our good friends at Flametree, producers of the Calendar and Advent Calendar.  As with those other items the quality of this diary is superb.  Full of lovely Rupert images and set out in a week per view style.  You Ruperteers have been nagging for a diary since the Year Planner in 2006.....so now we have one, lets show that we really wanted one, so Flametree can make another next year! 

The Diary measures 16.5cm by 13cm,(a bit smaller than half a piece of paper that you would put through a printer!), and will fit in your handbag if you are a lady or manbag if you have such a thing.  A great stocking filler for Christmas, birthday gift or a treat for yourself.

Please note you have to be quick to order.  Diaries sell very quickly and there will be no reprints.  These are expected to be gone long before Father Christmas has even contemplated the task ahead.

UK postage £1.00, Europe £2.37 and Rest of the World £3.96

Described by one delighted customer "With all the pictures, it's like a little annual all on it's own!"
