VINCE GUARALDI TRIO: A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS
This is an easy review...I really don't have to say much besides the CD title!
We all remember A Charlie Brown Christmas, the first animated special featuring the characters from Charles M. Schulz’ Peanuts comic strip.
We all remember wanting to be able to dance like Snoopy, or wrap our secutiy blanket around a frail young sapling and have it bloom into a Christmas tree.
And is there one of us who does not instantly recognize the tune "Linus And Lucy?"
With music by the Vince Guaraldi Trio, the soundtrack to that special has been an annual cash cow since 1965. It seems that if you wait until after Black Friday, you can’t find it.
While there are other instantly recognizable tunes ("Christmas Time Is Here," "Hark The Herald Angels Sing," "Oh Tannenbaum"), "Linus And Lucy" is along reason enough to buy this CD and have it in your holiday rotation.
Gary Hoey also does a rockin' version that is worth checking out. Give one or both of 'em to someone on your list!
So without further ado...
LINUS AND LUCY
