REVIEW

February 26, 2004

This CD is one of a series of ten CD's by the Peanuts released in 1996 with the "20 Years On" tag. Two others, WELCOME BACK! THE PEANUTS ~ 20 YEARS ON - Let's Go Peanuts (KICS-545) and WELCOME BACK! THE PEANUTS ~ 20 YEARS ON - Standard Peanuts (KICS-546) also appear on this site. I so far haven't been able to track down the others.

The music on this disc is an odd mixture of mostly songs sung in Italian and covers of American songs. There certainly isn't much, if anything, here that hasn't appeared on other discs on this site. The music on this disc is mostly slower, more laid back, love type songs. Not much in the way of snappy, happy tunes here. Even though I really enjoy the music of The Peanuts and did enjoy this CD, I must say it's not one of my favorites. I'm glad I bought it and it certainly isn't a bad listen, I just would have enjoyed a better mix of songs and styles.
