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). 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. Perhaps that’s the reason for A Charlie Brown Christmas’s longevity, and indeed the reason there’s a market for yet another deluxe edition – seemingly an annual occurrence at this point – which packs out four CDs with enough alternative takes to satisfy even the most obsessive fan. Christmas Is Coming propels itself along, accurately drawing a picture of anticipation; Skating is straightforwardly sublime, its melody descending in flurries. The score for A Charlie Brown Christmas was such a triumph that Guaraldi composed the music for 17 Peanuts television specials in all, a spectacular streak ended only by his untimely death in 1976 at the age of 47.

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. If they had mixed it to analog, that might have added a different sense of warmth, but it likely would have added a generation of information loss along the way.We have about a dozen varied Christmas CDs from various artist pop CDs to jazz piano via Sinatra and Buble: all are good.

The white “snow” color drops splattered in a base of clear vinyl plays with a steady and audible pfff… pffft… pffft in the background.

Gold Foil Edition (LP): For 2022, the traditionally white jacket has been wrapped in a gold foil while the Peanuts characters and tree have been embossed for a striking look. Il vinile verde è molto particolare, non è un valore aggiunto secondo me (nelle altre foto c'è il classico disco, queste versioni trasparenti e colorate non mi fanno impazzire ma forse è questione di abitudine). 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. I prefer how Guaraldi’s piano sounds on this new edition, especially in comparison to the originals that always sounded a little bit on the boxy side (even on my aforementioned SACD). on Billboard's pop album charts, an amazing achievement for any holiday collection, much less one more than two decades old at the time.

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. 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. It’s almost as if a ballerina was practicing dance steps for The Nutcracker in a rehearsal studio in the background.One of the most beloved and iconic holiday albums of all-time, this best-selling perennial classic continues to introduce generations of children to the joys of jazz, year after year, with songs like 'Christmas Time Is Here' and the instantly recognizable 'Linus and Lucy.
