The Christmas season doesn’t start until I hear the music of Vince Guaraldi. You’ll know his famous Christmas arrangements from Snoopy’s A Charlie Brown Christmas. When I hear these songs, I’m taken back to my childhood when I loved watching this classic Christmas movie on television.
Can you believe that it has been 70 years since Peanuts was created? Charles Schulz was the creator of this well-loved cartoon. The characters are so timeless and the humor charming.
Craft Recordings is celebrating this 70 year milestone with new playlists and video releases featuring the original songs from Vince Guaraldi. These beautiful and haunting songs have helped to define the Peanuts experience over the past seven decades.
As our families will soon be celebrating the season at home, we’ll enjoy the streaming playlists and new music videos. We will love sharing new collectible editions of the Charlie Brown Christmas album with a new generation.
We’ve included two new animated music videos for you to enjoy.
A “Peanuts 70th Anniversary Playlist” is available across music streaming service, featuring 70 favorite songs from various television specials and compilations.
As part of the anniversary celebration, Craft Recordings also presents a one-time vinyl pressing of A Charlie Brown Christmas featuring a bonus “dancing” lenticular print of the original 1965 album cover with Schulz’s iconic illustration. The LP has been pressed on a range of colors and picture discs for participating retailers.
The soundtrack album, featuring music from the 1965 animated television special A Charlie Brown Christmas, includes timeless classics such as “Christmas Time Is Here,” “O Tannenbaum,” and “Linus and Lucy.” The certified 4x Platinum soundtrack album remains the second best-selling jazz title in history, and the animated show continues to be a signature television special every holiday season.
A native of San Francisco, Vince Guaraldi became one of America’s most successful jazz artists of the 20th century. Though Guaraldi’s legacy is most famously tied to his association with Peanuts, he was already an established, GRAMMY® Award-winning artist by the time that producer Lee Mendelson tapped him to score the first of many animated specials based on the comic strip by Charles Schulz.
The 70th Anniversary of Peanuts vinyl releases are highly collectible; LPs released earlier this year are already sold out. To learn more about these and other releases from Craft Recordings visit https://craftrecordings.com/collections/peanuts-music.
