A Charlie Brown Christmas (2lp Deluxe Edition)
eanuts and piano fans, rejoice: the world-famous wonderful Christmas album 'A Charlie Brown Christmas' by the Vince Guaraldi Trio has been released in a new 'Remastered & Expanded' edition. The brand new luxurious CD edition celebrates the fabulous 1965 TV series soundtrack. Remastered from the original stereo tapes. Sound optimized to 24bit. Plus 3 Christmas bonus tracks. The digital remastering in 24Bbit process was done by the Californian sound engineer luminary Joe Tarantino. For this purpose, the revered expert unearthed the original analog stereo master tapes of the 1965 multi-platinum album from the archives, together with the original stereo mixes. Resulting in an astonishing difference in sound between this reissue and the first CD issue from 1988 - suggesting the great strides made in the digitization of analog master tapes over the past 25 years. Fantastic to hear, especially on the centerpiece 'Christmas Time Is Here' as well as its extended soulful instrumental version of a good six minutes playing time. The new edition also contains three Christmas bonus tracks: 'Greensleeves', 'Thanksgiving Theme' and 'Great Pumpkin Waltz'. Who doesn't know them, the unsurpassable, lovable Peanuts? Charlie Brown and cheeky Lucy, Snoopy, Linus, Schroeder, Sally and Peppermint Patty - they're as much a part of the festivities as the Christmas tree decorations. 180g black vinyl in gatefold cover. LP1 contains a brand new 2022 stereo remix. The audio has been remixed and mastered by Paul Blakemore from the original three and two track sources. LP2 contains newly discovered material consisting of highlights from five sessions. The set is presented in a gatefold cover and also includes new liner notes by Peanuts historian Derrick Bang.
