A Charlie Brown Christmas [2022 Gold Foil Edition]
Taken like a spoonful of Nyquil just before you pass out from flu exhaustion, nostalgia is no harm at all.
In fact, it's positively uplifting, even if that lift up hampers your hipness standing to the point where you might as well be culturally asleep. Short trips to what was probably an imaginary past-- immaculate family gatherings around the tree, perfect junior high summers with perfect junior high kisses-- aren't necessarily grounds for an inner guilt trip. But depending on your references, be prepared to defend your sleepy tastes to anyone who doesn't care for fuzzy focus warmth or the notion that fond reminisce amounts to anything more than premature senility. Enter Peanuts.
With such iconic tracks as "Christmas Time is Here" and the instantly recognizable "Linus and Lucy", the Vince Guaraldi Trio's soundtrack to A Charlie Brown Christmas remains the second best-selling jazz title in history, and was certified 4x Platinum by the RIAA in late 2016.
For this one-time only 2021 printing, the jacket has been wrapped in a silver foil while the embossed Peanuts characters and tree have never appeared more striking.
