New editions of Charlie Brown Xmas albums - 14 October 2022

https://craftrecordings.com/collecti...deluxe-edition

Several configurations and versions including newly discovered outtakes and alternate versions of the classic Christmas music album from Vince Guaraldi.

The big six disc set is impressive, but not sure how often I'd listen to five different takes of the same song. At the very least I might spring for the deluxe single CD.

Oh wow, very cool. I got to interview the last surviving member of the trio a few years ago (sadly, he passed recently), and one of my question was about unreleased stuff and he told me he believed there was a bunch. Nice to see some seeing the light of day.

The Atmos might be pretty cool for some who usually play this when opening gifts as now the soundtrack can snow down upon them.

Too rich for me. I would love the BD but I would never play the alternate takes. Once again the high rez version is held hostage in a huge box set.

What is funny is I am the exact opposite. I would never play the High Rez but will love the alternate takes.

I will likely pick this up. Nice release!

Yes, I'm big on the alternate takes, as well. The way I see it is that I'm not going to get new material from a musician (whom I adore) that's been dead for 45+ years, so these alternate takes are the closest thing to it.

I'm hoping the 5 disc set isn't a limited edition thing, and it's not stated to be. I also hope it'll show up on amazon Canada, so I don't have to deal with possible border charges, and exchange.

I don't even know how many versions/media types I have of this album (some already containing different takes), already, but I will be adding more.

I already have so many copies and permutations of this music. I have the SACD, so Hi-Rez isn't a great lure for me this time.

I've owned this a couple times over the years, buying and selling and re-buying, with the last time I bought it I was scouring the used stores for a specific pressing.

If the mega set comes down any and I maybe get some Amazon gift cards, I might splurge.

I went ahead and preordered. It is just money after all. I also got the newest version of It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown on CD today. Good stuff.
