Released 196512XX.
5/6 songs. 19:56/14:57. A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)

First listen. 2012 CD.

Songs in bold are the bonus tracks on the deluxe edition.
3: "Linus And Lucy"; "Christmas Time Is Here" (Vocal);

1: "What Child Is This"; "My Little Drum"; "Christmas Is Coming"; "Fur Elise"; "Great Pumpkin Waltz"; "Thanksgiving Theme";

While some of the songs aren't spectacular, it's worth noting that is also the reason I probably enjoy the album as a whole. In other words, the songs are pleasant and it's exactly the type of music I enjoy playing in the background during the holidays.

Overall Rating: 4.0/5
Favorite Song: "Linus And Lucy"
