An official announcement is pending.

This is the information currently available on SH.tv:

No track list yet.

Super deluxe 5-Disc set features a new stereo mix remastered from the original 3-track and 2-track sources, and the original stereo mix on CD 1.
Discs 2-4 offer a trove of unheard outtakes from five recording sessions and place listeners in the studio as the musicians work through their arrangements.

The Blu-Ray disc includes hi-resolution audio of the new mix as well as a Dolby Atmos mix.

Amazon has a pre-sale listing for $99.98 with a release date of October 14.

Craft has a page reserved for it, but its currently blank:



If well done, it could be an enjoyable set. I truly wonder whether the Atmos mix will improve on the mixes from the Monster Music set. The sessions were recorded to three track tape.

I wonder how many people are ready to spend $100 on such a set. Of course, I'll be buying one.

I've mentioned this in other section - I think the successive posts should be moved to this thread.
Thank you, mods.

I'd derfinitely purchase a stand alone BD~A in ATMOS since I do have a Stereo SACD of A Charlie Brown Christmas but all those session outtakes on RBCDs I believe are OVERKILL!

I am. I missed out on the previous multi-channel releases of this. I am very happy this is made available again. I could do without the extras, but I can't complain.

Craft Recordings proudly announces a definitive, bonus-filled edition of Vince Guaraldi’s timeless score from the beloved, 1965 animated PEANUTS® special, A Charlie Brown Christmas, from Charles Schulz and Lee Mendelson and Bill Melendez. While the album has remained a holiday staple for nearly 60 years (not to mention the best-selling jazz album of all time, alongside Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue, after earning 5x platinum certification by the RIAA in May), this latest edition showcases Guaraldi’s creative process like never before, thanks to hours of newly unearthed session tapes from Fantasy Records’ vaults. Now, fans can experience cues like “Christmas Time Is Here,” “O Tannenbaum,” and “Skating” as they take shape in the studio through dozens of previously unreleased alternate tracks.

Three instruments... Six channels... I guess and hope it's an interesting experiment in ambient sound shaping.

I guess I’m in the minority, but this is one where I’d love to have the mono mix as well as the stereo. Just putting in my two cents. 😁
That's really easy for you to have as there never was a dedicated Mono mix. It was a fold-fown of the Stereo mix. Simply sum-up both channels to Mono.

I don't usually fall for the whole coloured LP lark, I don't even really buy LPs anymore, but I decided to get the limited to 750 copies Ice Skating Rink clear one which is a Craft exclusive.

Gee, since there is a bluray you'd think they'd include the actual cartoon/program. IMO, even more inexcusable than not including the actual "The Wall" movie in the Pink Floyd Immersion box set.
FYI, the Peanuts HOLIDAY COLLECTION has been released in a Native UHD4K package with lossless 24 bit DTS~HD MA 5.1 codecs. It's a six disc set which includes the entire collection on BD~V, as well. Comes in a slipcase.


Edit: Just ordered a Used, VG set through Amazon for under $14 + s/h. Will Keep the UHD4K discs and gift the BD~Vs to a friend who is autistic and a huge Peanuts fan!

NOT wishing to get too far OFF TOPIC, that Warner Brother Peanuts 4K/BD~V gift set also includes SO MUCH MORE in 'Bonus Content' than the three holiday films and the price is certainly amazing for what you get:

Is it any wonder surround music is such a niche market and largely ignored by many labels? Here we are, on a site dedicated to the art, where you would think this sort of thing would be most appreciated. A cool new release gets announced and the first two pages of reaction is a b*tchfest. I'm happy to hear about this and interested to see what they were able to accomplish from the three track tapes.

I'm also looking forward to hearing the outs, even if I only ever play them once.

Edit: looks like somebody (I don't know if it was a mod or if I shamed the posters who were griping) removed the posts I was commenting about if this post seems odd now). Again, I'm excited to hear this.

This piqued my interested, so I looked for it on Amazon. They have it listed for pre-order at 100 bucks. Well that puts it out of range for me.
