MM notes: Also, if you’re so inclined to seek out any of these new/old variants, depending on which edition you get, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is alternately credited to “Vince Guaraldi Trio” and just “Vince Guaraldi. Truth is, I purged my old vinyl copy of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” many years ago when I got the SACD version. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. When the great jazz critic Nat Hentoff belatedly wrote an essay about him in 2010 – 34 years after Guaraldi’s sudden death, aged 47 – it was in the context of rediscovering a lost figure, noting that Guaraldi had never been on the list of nominees for the Jazz Hall of Fame, and comparing him to the largely forgotten swing-era trombonist Jack Jenney.

There’s no doubt the Charlie Brown soundtracks overshadowed the rest of Guaraldi’s career: the vast majority of his oeuvre isn’t on streaming services, and on the cover of the 2009 compilation The Definitive Vince Guaraldi – which delays breaking out Charlie Brown until CD 2, devoting the first to Guaraldi’s experiments with Latin American music – he’s pictured alongside Charlie Brown’s piano-playing chum Schroeder. SPECIAL FOR THE PEANUTS 70th ANNIVERSARY THIS YEAR: A Charlie Brown Christmas will be wrapped with an ‘animated’ collectible lenticular featuring Charles M Schulz’s beloved classic characters. There are funny scenes in A Charlie Brown Christmas, but the whole 25 minutes is shot through with a haunting vein of melancholy, which Guaraldi picked up on and amplified in his score. Thus, the new vinyl lacquers were cut from that digital source (and more on that point in a moment).

Disc five delivers the new stereo mix in hi-resolution audio, as well as Dolby Atmos® on Blu-ray audio. With such iconic tracks as “Christmas Time is Here” and the instantly recognisable “Linus and Lucy”, the Vince Guaraldi Trio’s soundtrack to A Charlie Brown Christmas shares the title of best-selling jazz album in history, and was certified 4x Platinum by the RIAA in late 2016. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

Craft Recordings kindly sent me a copy of the proper new 180g 2LP edition for this review, and I’m happy to report it’s generally a great listening experience. This popular album always seems to have been played a great deal on less-than-perfect turntables over the years, and probably mainly on those poorly aligned automatic record changers that were all the rage in the mid-1960s on into the ’70s. I even threw caution to the wind a few years back by getting one of those spiffy multicolor “snowball” vinyl special editions (which I think I got at Target). As I mentioned earlier, as a bonus in this new edition, we get an entire additional LP of outtakes and alternate takes that provide fascinating insight into how the album was made. I thought the album started with "Christmas Time Is Here Again" vocal version and ended with the instrumental version, so I recorded it that way and found out I was wrong when I finally bought my own on vinyl sometime later that had the sides marked on the label.I’m just giving you an honest heads up on that point, just in case any level/increment of that kind of thing is an annoyance to you as a listener. All that said, if you own a truly clean, original copy of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” that you like and are a casual fan of this music, you’re probably in good shape, and this new release may not be necessary for you. In the edit page, go to the 'Metadata' tab and add your Juno artist, label or release page for listeners to purchase your release / releases. The beloved Peanuts animated special from which it sprang was a sensation the first time it aired on CBS-TV, and so was its cool soundtrack by the veteran Bay Area pianist, which introduced countless children to the joys of jazz. If the remix was handled with loving care, there is certainly the potential for an improved — or at least different — listening experience.

With such iconic tracks as “Christmas Time is Here” and the instantly recognizable “Linus and Lucy”, the Vince Guaraldi Trio’s soundtrack to A Charlie Brown Christmas shares the title of best-selling jazz album in history, and was certified 4x Platinum by the RIAA in late 2016. And, with that latter sentiment in mind, I — and all of us here at AnalogPlanet — send each and every one of you best wishes for a very happy holiday season! This new edition of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” takes the listener just that extra bit closer to being there in the studio with the musicians who recorded it. Rounding out the package is a special message from the family of Lee Mendelson, the late Emmy® and Peabody Award-winning producer and co-creator of the PEANUTS® animated specials. Certainly, executives at the CBS network were horrified: at its pace, its simple animation, Shulz’s refusal to include the then ubiquitous canned laughter, and at Guaraldi’s soundtrack.The perfect Christmas album, have loved this album since i was a small boy ( i'm 67 now) the CD version has been mastered beautifully by Fantasy records.
