180-gram gatefold double LP

Deluxe Edition reissue with new stereo mix, newly discovered session tracks

Contains new liner notes from Peanuts historian, Derrick Bangs

This deluxe 2LP set of A Charlie Brown Christmas features a brand-new stereo mix of the classic album remastered from the original 3-track and 2-track sources, as well as 13 unreleased outtakes, and highlights taken from five sessions of recording material. Amazing in their own right, these unheard versions give insight into how this iconic score took shape. The package is housed in a gatefold jacket and also features new liner notes from Peanuts historian, Derrick Bangs. 180-gram vinyl.

When Vince Guaraldi's Charlie Brown Christmas album was inducted into the Library of Congress, the Library's media release noted, "A Charlie Brown Christmas introduced jazz to millions of listeners." The album's centerpiece track, today as it was in 1965, is "Christmas Time Is Here," particularly the long, soulful instrumental version that clocks in at just over six minutes.
