A Charlie Brown Christmas - Green Vinyl Edition

    Originally broadcast in 1965, A Charlie Brown Christmas is hands down one of the most beloved specials in TV history. Commissioned by Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz, Vince Guaraldi and his trio rounded out by Monty Budwig (bass) and Colin Bailey (drums), composed and performed the timeless contemporary jazz score which wonderfully reflects both the spirit of the legendary Peanuts characters and the Christmas season.

    A Grammy Hall of Fame inductee in 2007, A Charlie Brown Christmas was inducted into the Library of Congress in May of 2012 with the accompanying statement, “A Charlie Brown Christmas introduced jazz to millions of listeners,” and 45 plus years on it's still doing just that. Peanuts and Vince Guaraldi historian Derrick Bang even goes so far as to say, "Back people into a corner and limit them to just one holiday album for the rest of their lives, and I suspect that an impressive number of folks, jazz fans or not, would select this one!" Reissued here on green colored vinyl by Fantasy Records.

    Charlie Brown's Holiday Hits

    Available on vinyl for the first time! A festive collection of classic tunes featured in the beloved Peanuts television holiday specials, all with the sophisticated, yet accessible jazz stylings of the Vince Guaraldi Trio. The album includes titles from A Charlie Brown Christmas, It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown. Ralph Gleason notes, "All the characters in Peanuts are artists confronted with the illogical, blind and mechanistic world. It was natural that Vince Guaraldi's music should fit so well."

    The one and only album from this jazz-funk trio, originally out in 1975. Produced by Donald Byrd, it's similar to his work with The Blackbyrds from the same era. It's a smooth album, with the addition of a string and horn section to the funky guitar, bass, drums and keyboards making for a full sound. Another collectors item from the rare groove era.

    Happy Music / Rock Creek Park

    Another week, another replica 12". This time Fantasy records and two corkers from the Blackbyrds. On side-A is "Happy Music", a sweet uptempo funk derived disco classic, with oodles of grooviness, funky guitar, ace vocals, brilliant lazy groove drumming and of course a dynamite bassline. Over on side-B is the extended mix of "Rock Creek Park", an absolute stone cold classic as far as I am concerned, brilliant sing-a-long vocals, killer funky guitar line and a totally irresistible groove. Aceness.

    Without doubt, one of the most important records of the last 20 years, an epoch-making piece of music from young Juan Atkins who produced this landmark tune back in 1983. It defined the emerging Detroit techno scene for years to come, taking on European influences such as Kraftwerk and the Human League and mixing them with post-industrial Motor City electronics. It is simply one of the finest electro records ever made. The B-side features "Industrial Lies", which has kraut-rock rhythms, Ash-Ra electric guitar and sinister vocals.
