A special remastering of Vince Guaraldi's soundtrack album. Include 4 previously unreleased bonus tracks and original album artwork, reinstated with the approval of the Estate of Charles Schultz. Remixed in stereo and 24 -bit remastered from the original tapes and released in a digipak for the first time.
The first time you listen to this disc you will undoubtedly be transported directly back to your childhood. Charles Schulz's Peanuts characters will go toe-tapping and funky-dancing through your mind's eye. Play it a few more times, though (ignoring the dialogue snippets, if you can), and you will begin to truly revel in Guaraldi's wonderful, humorous, deep piano playing. You'll hear why he's such an influence on new age ivory tickler George Winston, but you'll also realize that Winston's holiday music never quite sparkles with the underlying passion, and humor, that twinkles in these grooves. Buy it for the nostalgia--keep it because it will remain one of the most enchanting albums in your holiday collection. --Michael Ruby --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

There really isn't any more to be said about this CD. Everyone's seen the show, and the music of Vince Guaraldi is timeless. One of the all-time greatest jazz musicians, Guaraldi had a unique and almost universally liked style few, if any, modern musicians can touch. The soundtrack has taken on a life of its own - play it at a party and people will smile and relax as they are almost subconsciously transported back to childhood.
The Christmas season starts for me right after Thanksgiving, when I first play "A Charlie Brown Christmas". Through all the hassles of traffic, shopping, cooking, cleaning, and the overall holiday rush, this CD always reminds me of the true meaning of Christmas, what this season is truly about. And I still take out and admire securely-stored LP version which I will never give up.

"O Tannenbaum" and the vocal rendition of "Christmastime is Here" are excellent and just as I remember them. "Fur Elise" is also nice, and "Greensleeves" was a perfect way to end the album. I just wish there were some way to work in Schroeder's rendition of "Jingle Bells" (his staccatto single notes become funnier everytime I hear them).
On the downside, the vocal rendition of "Christmastime is Here" has an abrupt cutoff at the end, which has been noted by other reviewers. Also, the "Linus and Lucy" on this album ends more 'jazzy' than I prefer, but that's just me.
Buy this album and enjoy it!
