A Charlie Brown Christmas

Vince Guaraldi Trio • Tape


“A Charlie Brown Christmas” is a 1965 animated television special. It is the first TV special based on the Peanuts comic strip by Charles M. Schulz and made its debut on CBS on December 9, 1965. In the special, Charlie Brown finds himself depressed despite the onset of the cheerful holiday season. Lucy suggests he direct a neighborhood Christmas play, but his best efforts are ignored and mocked by his peers when he chooses a real, but puny, Christmas tree as a centerpiece. After Linus speaks of the true meaning of Christmas, the neighborhood decorates the tree as a Christmas gift to Charlie Brown.

Its soundtrack by jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi has been considered one of the most beloved holiday albums ever recorded. The Los Angeles Times asserts that the soundtrack introduced jazz to an entirely new generation, having been heard by more individuals than the work of the genre’s most influential players, including Miles Davis and John Coltrane.

“A Charlie Brown Christmas” was voted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in 2007, and in 2012 the album was added to the Library Of Congress’s National Recording Registry list of culturally, historically, or aesthetically important American sound recordings.

This is the 2021 reissue on a gorgeous silver shell cassette, brand new and sealed!
