Twist And Shout

Ever since its debut in 1965, the Vince Guaraldi Trio s album A Charlie Brown Christmas has reigned as a Yuletide classic. 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.

Reviews:

Buoyed by annual airings of the program, the album has remained extremely popular ever since. A 1987 reissue went platinum as it sailed to No. 9 on Billboard s pop album charts, an amazing achievement for any holiday collection, much less one more than two decades old at the time. 

Charlie Brown Christmas [Snoopy Doghouse Edition]

Set for release on October 22, 2013 in a deal with Peanuts Worldwide, the remastered and expanded CD edition of A Charlie Brown Christmas is the perfect gift for any dedicated Peanuts fan. Along with Guaraldi s classic original album (rendered in crystal-clear 24-bit stereo from the original analog tapes), this reissue contains three bonus tracks ( Greensleeves, Great Pumpkin Waltz, and Thanksgiving Theme ) and a 20-page booklet filled with iconic images from the program and in-depth liner notes by Guaraldi historian Derrick Bang, author of Vince Guaraldi at the Piano. 

But what really sets this edition of A Charlie Brown Christmas apart from its predecessors is its deluxe packaging. It s called the Snoopy Doghouse Edition as the disc is housed in a customized sleeve that folds out to form a replica of Snoopy s colorfully decorated domicile and comes with cut-out replicas of the Peanuts gang Linus, Lucy, Snoopy, and Charlie Brown himself with stands for each figure so the entire package can sit beneath the tree while A Charlie Brown Christmas spins on the CD player. What better way to merrily celebrate the holidays?
