  A Boy Named Charlie Brown - Vince Guaraldi / Rod McKuen - soundtrack (CD)

Vince Guaraldi

  Kritzerland KR20031-8 | Format CD | Year 1969

Limited edition of 1000 copies.

Kritzerland is proud to present a world premiere release of the complete soundtrack to the animated classic film:


Music by Vince Guaraldi
Songs by Rod McKuen
Additional Orchestral Accompaniment and Conducted by John Scott Trotter

Good grief, it's A Boy Named Charlie Brown – on CD – complete! A Boy Named Charlie Brown opened on December 4, 1969 at the Radio City Music Hall, only the third animated feature to play there (the first two were Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Bambi). It boasted the largest advance sale of any picture in Radio City Music Hall history. It became an instant classic, the reviews were great, audiences flocked to the film and it has remained an instant classic ever since. Vincent Canby summed it all up in his New York Times review: "A practically perfect screen equivalent to the quiet joys to be found in almost any of Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts comic strips."

Of course, Charlie and company had already had several animated hits on TV and one of main components of those was the witty and tuneful music of jazz great Vince Guaraldi. Producer Lee Mendelson was driving home from a meeting with Schulz when he happened to hear Guaraldi's classic "Cast Your Fate to the Wind" on the radio. He contacted Guaraldi, cast his fate to the wind, and the rest is musical history and heaven.

Guaraldi's music for A Boy Named Charlie Brown is simply amazing and simply perfect. Add to that the fantastic underscore of John Scott Trotter and songs by Rod McKuen and you have the makings of a classic soundtrack, so much so that the music was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song Score. There was, of course, a soundtrack release by Columbia Records, but it was more of a "story" album, with a lot of talking over virtually every cue, some of it written specifically for the LP. Soundtrack fans longed for a complete soundtrack release without the narration. They longed for many years.

But good grief, guess what? This world premiere CD release was produced from the original music-only session masters before the narration was overlaid and so, at long last, fans have what they've been asking for four decades, the complete score and songs with no narration at all in pristine and glorious stereophonic sound. Vince Guaraldi was one of the all-time greats and this CD is a testament to his genius and brilliance. So, come join Charlie, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the entire Peanuts gang for an infectious, tuneful, and magical musical adventure.
