Customer Reviews

This is very simple, primitive, minimun composed jazz.
oism
It's guaranteed to bring on a great deal of nostalgia but it is also a CD you can play repeatedly, especially when you're in the mood for something relaxing and fun.
Jakki
The combination of nostalgia nd just being really good music makes this so worth it.

(...), writing a review of this CD (...) is mistaken about one fact: "Charlie Brown's Holiday Hits" DOES contain more than just one tune from "A Charlie Brown Christmas." In fact, in addition to "Linus and Lucy" being here, much to my surprise and delight it contains two of the numbers included on the television special but never incorporated on that program's soundtrack album--to wit, "Surfin' Snoopy," the uptempo ditty that accompanied Snoopy's decoration of his dog house with a hilariously garish, razzle-dazzle lighting display; and the "Charlie Brown Theme," that played while poor Charlie the director tried to rally his players to get with the Christmas spirit in performing their parts in the annual Christmas show. The presence of these two long-lost tracks from the Christmas special (this CD's 1998 release marked their debut on any recorded music format--record, tape or CD) fills a longstanding void and means that ALL of Vince Guaraldi's sparkling jazz score from the Christmas special is now finally available: most of it on the original soundtrack of "A Charlie Brown Christmas," and the remainder here on "Charlie Brown's Holiday Hits". Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown.

One thing I was worried about before I bought this was if they had entire songs or just samples. They have entire songs. I don't understand song 6. "Good Grief" doesn't fit, it is ONLY vocal. Other than that, the songs are good, even if you don't know where they're from. Individual info:
Surfin' Snoopy is on "A Charlie Brown Christmas" when Snoopy decorates his house.
Heartburn Waltz is on "Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown" as the main theme, it is played during the class party.
Charlie Brown Theme is on many shows, played many ways.
Charlie's Blues is on "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" when Lucy tricks C.B. into kicking the football.
Great Pumpkin Waltz is on "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" as the main theme and is played in the pumpkin patch.
Thanksgiving Theme is on "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" as the main theme and is when Snoopy and Woodstock eat.
Linus and Lucy is the main theme for all.
Christmas Time is Here is on "A Charlie Brown Christmas" both CD and show.

For years Charlie Brown was a holiday staple for our family. Between Snoopy soundtracks and Mister Rogers' walking-through-the-neighborhood music, I grew up with a real fondness for jazz.
Almost all of these cuts will be instantly recognizable, and those that aren't right off will eventually come to mind. The music will conjure up fond rememberances of childhood and holidays, which is a powerful combination. And besides, it's just plain fun to listen to.
Besides the classic "Linus & Lucy", the Christmas theme "Christmas Time is Here" followed by it's intrumental counterpart, and the hard to find "Thanksgiving Theme" make this CD a bargain.
For a fan of the Peanuts gang, this CD is anything but wishy-washy.

Please consider the following before buying all of the tracks or the CD.

If you already own the Vince Guaraldi CDs 'A Boy Named Charlie Brown' and 'A Charlie Brown Christmas', you should be warned of the overlap between those two CDs and this one: Charlie Brown Theme, Linus and Lucy, Schroeder (from the first) -- and Christmastime is Here (vocal), Christmastime is Here (instrumental) from the second. 'Track Meet' is essentially an alternate take of 'Christmas is Coming' from the second.

As much as I like Vince Guaraldi's music, most of the other tracks - Joe Cool (Not the song you know [vocal or instrumental], and not that memorable), Track Meet, Camptown Races, Oh Good Grief (which has nothing to do with that song, but is an odd 'a cappella' vocal set to the tune of 'Schroeder') - are for completists only.

I would recommend you just get both above CDs and consider just these tracks:

Surfin' Snoopy (which you may recall from the special 'A Charlie Brown Christmas', but is not on the CD)
Heartburn Waltz (from the special 'Be My Valentine Charlie Brown')
Charlie's Blues (from the special 'A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving')
Great Pumpkin Waltz (from the special 'It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown')
Thanksgiving Theme (from the special 'A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving')

If you're a completists, by all means get this CD, but I think your money would be FAR better spent on:

Vince Guaraldi and the Lost Cues From the Charlie Brown TV Specials - Volume 1
Vince Guaraldi and the Lost Cues From the Charlie Brown TV Specials - Volume 2

These two CDs are what this CD should have been. It's far more memorable and focuses more on the later funkier and electric piano songs Vince Guaraldi did for the specials. I just wish there was a volume that focused on the earlier cues Vince did (like for 'It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown').

I think many of the reviewers of this release have their minds clouded by nostalgia and sentiment. Although Guaraldi's music is pleasant enough, the best tracks on this compilation have already been previously released, AND they're in good quality stereo. The previously unreleased tracks are in mono and are mere fragments: "Surfin' Snoopy" is barely one minute in length, "Joe Cool" two minutes. The tracks have also been assembled from disparate sources so there's no flow to the album, either, and a playing time of barely 37 minutes doesn't represent great value for money. In short, this album is not one you'll be playing out a lot.
