About this deal

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 remains the second–best-selling jazz title in history, and was certified 4x platinum by the RIAA in late 2016. Something faintly ominous lurks in the background of its adaptation of Little Drummer Boy, My Little Drum. So the outside cover is gold, but the actual vinyl is available in a number of coloured vinyl variants, depending on retailer.

Features some of the most iconic tracks in pop culture, including the instantly recognizable "Linus and Lucy" and the festive "Christmas Time Is Here. The CD comes in a nice digipack with a nice 14 page booklet which includes lots of info about the special with lots of the original artwork and adverts for the first time it was aired on TV. A Charlie Brown Christmas is one of those albums that fits a peaceful household wishing to avoid ostentatious celebration with tunes just as iconic as the TV special it accompanies but without the overdone pop-culture abrasiveness of Jingle Bells.For items that are dispatched using our standard service, we ask that you wait 14 days from the date of dispatch before reporting any items as undelivered.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The lenticular will be shrink-wrapped to the outer jacket so it can be framed or showcased separately from the album as the work of art that it is. Mark Smotroff is an avid vinyl collector who has also worked in marketing communications for decades.However, if you love this album and want to hear Vince Guaraldi and his trio in as close-to-first-gen quality as possible, then you owe it to yourself to hear this new version.

This Deluxe CD edition of the album features the 2022 stereo mix, plus 13 highlights from outtakes cut to 2 black vinyl LPs. Vince Guaraldi’s score from the classic 1965 animated Peanuts special, A Charlie Brown Christmas, is subject of a major reissue campaign from Craft Recordings. He was an expansive, even boundary-breaking artist: around the time Miles Davis was attempting to widen his audience by sharing bills with Neil Young and appearing at the 1970 Isle of Wight festival, Guaraldi was up on stage in San Francisco, jamming with Jerry Garcia; he also had a fair claim to be the artist who did the most to introduce young audiences to jazz during the 60s and 70s. The super deluxe offers more than 50 never-before-heard outtakes from five recording sessions and features both mixes of the album on CD 1.

What Child Is This is based around the sweet but sad melody of Greensleeves, while the version of O Tannenbaum opens with Guaraldi playing the melody alone at the piano, his performance filled with pauses.

With a new spin adding a receiver and blue tooth speakers for a bit more amplified sound though the house. After all these years of hearing just the original takes, it is fantastic to follow the journey on what the musicians went through to nail down those exemplary performances we’ve all come to know and love. 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.

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. com/collections/exclusive-vinyl/products/vince_guaraldi_trio-a_charlie_brown_christmas_exclusive_starburst_lp?
