This new repackaging of music by The Peanuts represents 50 A & B sides from various singles. Not really much here we haven't heard before but there were several tracks I didn't remember hearing before. This is a nice double CD with 50 songs total. You also get your money's worth since both CD's clock in at over 70 minutes each. The packaging says these tracks are MONO & STEREO and that's true but only three tracks on disc 1 and three tracks on disc 2 are in MONO. The other 44 tracks are all in STEREO. I also believe part of the title comes from this being The Peanuts 50th Anniversary.
After listening to this set twice so far I will say that this is probably the best sounding Peanuts CD I can remember hearing. It sounds like a lot of work was put into remastering these singles that mostly date back to the 1960's. For fans of The Peanuts music or those that haven't bought many or any of their previous CD's, this is one I can highly recommend.
