Description

This audiophile edition of the album has been cut by George Horn at Fantasy Studios and pressed on 180-gram vinyl at QRP. One the the best selling jazz albums of all time is explored across a number of formats, including a comprehensive 4CD+blu-ray super deluxe edition, which features hours of newly unearthed session tapes from Fantasy Records’ vaults. 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.

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. Indeed, with this new remix of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” now available, Christmastime is truly here. Like Jenney, Guaraldi died young, and, like Jenney, he played with a succession of names more likely to crop up in jazz history books and documentaries than his own: in Guaraldi’s case, Stan Getz, Ben Webster and Woody Herman. 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. I’d been long frustrated by off-center, lackluster pressings over the years, and unfortunately had endured many distorted versions in my quest to find a clean original.We have a regular newsletter with the week’s new releases that goes out every Thursday or Friday too. Disc one features the new stereo mix of the album, plus the original remastered 1965 mix, while disc two through four offer more than 50 never-before-heard outtakes from five recording sessions, as Guaraldi and his bandmates craft cues like “Christmas Is Coming” and “Skating. Overall, I am happy to finally have this nice new 180g vinyl version of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” to play for my family and friends this year during the holidays. 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.

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. Card was described and photographed very good and when received it matched the descriptions perfectly! 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.

The Super Deluxe Edition offers fans an unparalleled deep dive into all aspects of A Charlie Brown Christmas—placing listeners in the studio as the musicians work through their arrangements. 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.
