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.
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.
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').
