Craft Recordings Celebrates The 70th Anniversary of the "Peanuts" With New Vinyl Releases

In honor of the 70th anniversary of the "Peanuts" comic strip, Craft Recordings is unveiling two new vinyl releases in celebration of this momentum occasion. First, arriving on July 24th, is a limited-edition picture disc of the "Peanuts Greatest Hits" album featuring Snoopy on one side and his pal Woodstock on the other. This will be limited to only 2,500 numbered units and features all of the well-known classic jazz pieces from the "Peanuts" television specials. The Vince Guaraldi Trio may be best known for songs "Linus And Lucy" and "Little Birdie," along with the songs from the timeless Christmas special "A Charlie Brown Christmas." A dozen of these well known songs are now available once again on a really sweet looking picture disc and can be purchased at

Then, arriving on August 21st is the very first vinyl pressing of the "Peanuts Portraits" album. On this album, the Vince Guaraldi Trio created themes for each of the main characters from the "Peanuts" gang. The bluesy guitar of "Blue Charlie Brown" and the swinging piano melody of "Frieda (With The Naturally Curly Hair)" captures the essence of each character's persona. The album also contains pianist George Winston's renditions of the songs "Masked Marvel" and "Linus And Lucy." The Vinyl Me Please label will also be releasing a limited edition red vinyl version of this special album later this year.
