Masterpiece Reviews: A Charlie Brown Christmas

50 years later, it remains one of the best-selling Christmas albums

Welcome to the latest edition of Masterpiece Reviews. Once again, we’ve thrown on our favorite velvet robe, turned up the fire, and are here to regale you with stories of the greatest and most classic albums of all time. It’s a fresh, new perspective on why these albums are filed under “M” for masterpiece.

The holiday season is at our doorstep as the snow starts to fall, families gather together, and timeless music is played. Which is why for today’s episode, host Nick Freed dons his Santa hat and looks back at the classic album by the Vince Guaraldi Trio: A Charlie Brown Christmas. Recorded for the CBS television special that first aired in 1965, the album has gone on to sell over four million copies, been voted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, and is consistently one of the top selling holiday albums.
