Very Postal Peanuts

CD coverA Very Special Charlie Brown Holiday Collection is a new CD that came out for this holiday season – someone pointed me to it, but I didn’t have a chance to see one for myself until after Christmas, so I apologize to anyone who would’ve liked to have grabbed one for this year. It’s made up of music that you Peanuts music completists already have on your various soundtrack and soundtrack-cover CDs, plus new recordings of “Jingle Bells” and “Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer” by the David Benoit Trio. This CD is brought to you by those paragons of musical production, the United States Post Office!
The link above will take you to the post office website where you can order one, but if you want to pay less for a used copy (or more for an unopened copy), you can order it through Amazon here.

Edited later to add the track list:

  • O Tannenbaum – Gerald Albright
  • Linus and Lucy – Vince Guaraldi Trio
  • Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer – David Benoit Trio
  • Just Like Me – Vanessa Williams
  • Skating – Vince Guaraldi Trio
  • Jingle Bells – David Benoit Trio
  • Christmas Time is Here – Vince Guaraldi Trio
  • It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year – Toni Braxton
  • The Christmas Song – Vince Guaraldi Trio
  • Fur Elise – Vince Guaraldi
  • Greensleeves – Vince Guaraldi Trio

New Hallmark boardish books

I received the Hallmark Christmas catalog mailer the other day, and while there were new books in there, and Peanuts items, there were no new Peanuts books. But I try to be not so concerned, because I recall that being the case in the past, and they still ended up …

A little harder to find this Look And Find

The PI Kids line exists, I assume, solely to frustrate and befuddle me. They have out, apparently, what is announced on Amazon as Peanuts – Best Friends Look and Find Book and Cuddly Snoopy Plush. Only You cannot expect to get it through Amazon. Amazon says it will take months …
