Remastered From Original Stereo Master Tapes!

A newly remastered edition of one of the most popular and beloved holiday albums of all-time. This special 2012 edition of the multi-platinum selling classic includes three bonus tracks that did not appear on the original 1965 LP.

Newly remastered with 24-bit technology from the original stereo master tapes.

Digi packaging includes a 20-page booklet featuring memorable Peanuts character images from the Charlie Brown Christmas television special, as well as insightful new liner notes by Peanuts and Vince Guaraldi historian, Derrick Bang (author of Vince Guaraldi at the Piano).

Before he met Charles Schulz (and Charlie Brown), Vince Guaraldi was a household name in jazz because of his work with Cal Tjader and his success with "Cast Your Fate to the Wind" from his Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus album. The CBS television program A Charlie Brown Christmas spread Guaraldi’s fame far beyond jazz households. First broadcast in 1965, the show is one of the best-loved animated specials in TV history, repeated year after year during the Christmas season. Charlie Brown’s struggles against the crassness of holiday commercialism in search of the true meaning of Christmas mirrored Guaraldi’s philosophy of music. Schulz’s story struck in Guaraldi a responsive chord - many chords. The simplicity, the rightness of the music he crafted to reflect the personalities of Charlie, Lucy, Snoopy, Linus and the rest of the Peanuts gang is greatly responsible for the success of the production.
