Vince Guaraldi and George Winston
Over its eleven tracks, Peanuts Portraits portrays each character from Charles M. Schulz’s beloved comic strip in music. Beginning with “Linus and Lucy,” it presents such musical portraits as “Sally’s Blues,” “Peppermint Patty,” “Frieda (With Naturally Curly Hair),” “Schroeder” (in an alternate take),” and “Joe Cool,” an ode to Snoopy’s hip alter ego. In addition to the classic Vince Guaraldi recordings – the above five plus four more – the set features two tracks recorded in the 1990s by pianist George Winston: his take on “Linus and Lucy” plus another portrait of a Snoopy persona, “The Masked Marvel.” A total of eight tracks make their vinyl debuts here. Peanuts Portraits will be released to general retail in a black vinyl edition, while Vinyl Me Please will offer an exclusive version of the album pressed on 180-gram red vinyl.
