Notes

From the back of the LP:

Oh, good grief!
They've gone and done it.
They've put that jazzy music from <i>Peanuts</i> television specials on record. Those piquant waltzes, fox trots and box steps that Vince Guaraldi wrote for <i>You're In Love Charlie Brown</i>, <i>Charlie Brown's All-Stars</i>, <i>It's Your Dog, Charlie Brown</i>, <i>A Charlie Brown Christmas</i> and <i>It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown</i>.

What's more, they're played by My. Guaraldi himself, on piano and electric harpsichord, with a noble assist from Carl Burnett (drums), Stanley Gilbert (bass) and Eddie Duran (electric guitar).

Four grown-up believers giving heart-to-heart resuscitation to the little world of good 'ol wishy-washy Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Snoopy, Schroeder and the impenetrable "Pig-Pen." Right here on shiny black vinyl.

Big sisters may be the crabgrass of life (Linus), happiness may be a warm puppy (Lucy), and dancing may be the only pure art form (Snoopy), but Vince Guaraldi is the musical Gospel according to <i>Peanuts</i>.

To quote Charlie Brown when his baseball team lost another game, 184 to nothing: "How can we lose when we're so sincere?"
Track A3 is misspelled as "Peppermint Party" on center label.
