My family and I are huge fans of the PEANUTS gang – Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Woodstock, Lucy, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Sally, Pig Pen… we love them all.
Have you seen the PEANUTS movie that was in theaters not too long ago (and is currently available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD)? If you haven’t seen it yet, you should. It’s adorable! You can read my review here – The PEANUTS movie is coming to Blu-ray and DVD. Please note the giveaway in that post is over.
We never miss any of the holiday PEANUTS specials either. If we don’t catch them on TV we make it a point to watch the copies that we have. Just recently we enjoyed It’s the Easter Beagle Charlie Brown on a DVD that we own.
We enjoy their specials so much that we own their greatest hits on CD. We especially love “Christmas Time is Here,” “Linus and Lucy,” and “Little Birdie.”
Now PEANUTS Greatest Hits is available on a special edition, collectible picture disc. It’s an actual LP (long playing) record – the kind we used to enjoy back in the 70’s.
I can’t believe that LP records are coming back. I spend many hours with my record player enjoying LP’s and 45’s when I was a young girl. My brother even still owns the record player my parents had which is a huge piece of furniture. The record player is on one side and the albums are stored on the other side.
My teenage daughter said she wants to get a record player some day and start collecting albums. It’s funny that something so old is new again.
I never thought we’d never see LP’s again now that you can download your music digitally. And to think I threw most of mine out, except some Disney 45’s that are buried somewhere in the basement.
The special edition PEANUTS LP features Charlie Brown’s face on Side A, and Lucy’s face on Side B.
Check it out in action in this brief video (I want that record player! LOL!).
This new compilation (also available digitally and on CD) features 12 of the most memorable recordings from the beloved animated PEANUTS television specials, all with the sophisticated, yet accessible jazz stylings of the Vince Guaraldi Trio.
PEANUTS Greatest Hits includes such favorites as the instantly recognizable “Linus and Lucy,” the “Charlie Brown Theme” from A Boy Named Charlie Brown, the festive “Christmas Is Coming” from A Charlie Brown Christmas, as well as the humorous “Little Birdie,” which features vocals by Vince Guaraldi himself!
I was sent one to review. I don’t have a record player (yet?) to actually play it, but I am going to display it as a collectible. It’s just to cute to hide away.
If you are interested in ordering your own copy you can purchase it here – http://smarturl.it/PGHFaceLP. The link takes you to Amazon (it’s not an affiliate link). The LP sells for $23.99. The audio CD and digital download are also available. If you are a Prime member the LP ships for free.
