The first time you listen to this disc you will undoubtedly be transported directly back to your childhood. Charles Schulz's Peanuts characters will go toe-tapping and funky-dancing through your mind's eye. Play it a few more times, though (ignoring the dialogue snippets, if you can), and you will begin to truly revel in Guaraldi's wonderful, humorous, deep piano playing. You'll hear why he's such an influence on new age ivory tickler George Winston, but you'll also realize that Winston's holiday music never quite sparkles with the underlying passion, and humor, that twinkles in these grooves. Buy it for the nostalgia--keep it because it will remain one of the most enchanting albums in your holiday collection. --Michael Ruby

There is no spoken word Charlie Brown on the record, it's all music. But it's from the TV specials, so you'll recognize every track (my favorite is "skating"). They have two versions of Christmastime is here, one with vocals and one without - however they are stacked as last track on side A and first track on side B, so I recommend listening to side B first before flipping the record so you don't hear the same song twice in a row.
Overall our favorite record for the holidays. Thanks Vince!
