The Emmy-nominated 1966 television special It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown was the third overall for Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts series and the second to be holiday-themed, after A Charlie Brown Christmas. It earned a whopping 49 share in the ratings and was so successful that CBS re-aired it every year through 2000, with ABC picking up the tradition after that. Yet despite a beloved score by Vince Guaraldi (who else?), a soundtrack album to Great Pumpkin had never been released in any audio format until last year’s CD issue. Now, Craft Recordings has that first-ever soundtrack release coming to vinyl, retaining the CD’s new introduction from executive producer Lee Mendelson and liner notes by Guaraldi historian Derrick Bang. An etching of the pumpkin appears on Side Two of the vinyl.
