REVIEW

March 04, 2010

After resisting the limited edition, cardboard sleeve, reissue's of many Peanuts CD's, I finally broke down and bought this one. With the short playing time it would seem to be a reissue of an earlier LP. However I was glad I bought the CD because even though some songs on this CD have shown up on many of the CD's by this duo that I already own, there were several tracks here that I didn't remember hearing before. Except for the short playing time the CD sounds fantastic and even though I detest cardboard sleeves for my CD's this one was packaged nicely with a decent booklet insert. The CD itself looks like a miniature vinyl LP.
