My review title is a paraphrase of Charlie Brown's comment about Snoopy being so deft that he could catch a soap bubble in his mouth without popping it and so clumsy that he then tripped and fell on his face; however, I am asking this of those who produced this CD. How could you go to all the trouble to restore and re-release these long lost classics and then make so many stupid, annoying, incompetent mistakes in the process?

First, why did you put albums 2 and 4 on this CD and albums 1 and 3 on the other CD Snoopy Vs. the Red Baron/Snoopy & His Friends? It cannot be album length; each album is almost exactly 30 minutes long and a standard CD can hold about 80 minutes of audio. Besides the annoyance of having to switch CD's 3 times in order to listen to the albums chronologically, this also results in what is in fact a copy of the same recording of "Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron" appearing twice on the other CD Snoopy Vs. the Red Baron/Snoopy & His Friends. Simply putting albums 3 and 4 on this CD and 1 and 2 on the other CD would have prevented any duplicate tracks.

Second, why didn't you add the two singles not included on any of the 4 original albums, "Mother, Where's Your Daughter?" and especially the last Snoopy song, "Smallest Astronaut" while you had the chance? It's more than a little annoying to have to purchase a third CD, either the now OOP Anthology or the essentially identical

4.0 out of 5 stars The Guardsmen branch out..... November 7, 2005
By Matt
Format:Audio CD
I'm only 26 in years, but I grew up with music like this thanks to the family collection of LPs and 45s. Most of today's 'pop' is just plain awful (my opinion of course). Back in this era, even during such turbulant times that the late 1960s are known for, the Royal Guardsmen made their music FUN!

On this disc, you get their second and fourth LP's ("Snoopy Vs The Red Baron, and "Snoopy & His Friends", LPs 1 and 3 respectively, are on another CD sold here...with more good stuff). There is no 'remastering' done here...these will sound like they were ripped straight from the masters with no EQing done to them, just as you remember them on LP. This doesn't matter though...at least not to me. Not when the music is enjoyable and puts you in a good mood.

I noticed no edits or omissions on this CD. The only thing that is missing from the Guardsmen catalog after buying this and the aformentioned first 'twofer' CD, are a couple of tracks that were only released as singles. Those can be found on the "Best of" compilation, if you must have every single last track the Guardsmen committed to tape.

These two albums are more mature, more varied in their music styles. There's a couple ballads, the obligatory cover tunes, and a few pop numbers, but otherwise, these two LPs find the boys branching out into rock, R&B, psychadelic, and other formats.

"Return of the Red Baron" is clearly a stronger set of tracks, with a scorching take on Steve Winwood's "Gimme Some Lovin'" among the set.

"Snoopy for President", unfortunately, shows the Guardsmen starting to weaken stylistically. Half of the songs here are a bit 'too' sweet, succumbing to what the guys in the black suits wanted. (pop hits = money..you know how it goes).
