Boy Named Charlie Brown (Original Soundtrack)
First time on CD for the soundtrack to the 1969 full length animated motion picture A Boy Named Charlie Brown. The instrumental tracks interspersed throughout the movie were composed by Vince Guaraldi and arranged by John Scott Trotter. The music consisted mostly of up-tempo jazz tunes that had been heard since some of the earliest Peanuts television specials aired back in 1965; however, for A Boy Named Charlie Brown, they were given a more "theatrical" treatment, with lusher horn-filled arrangements. Guaraldi and Trotter were nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Score for their work on the soundtrack. A Boy Named Charlie Brown also included several original songs, some of which boasted vocals for the first time: "Failure Face", "I Before E Except After C" and "Champion Charlie Brown". Rod McKuen wrote and sang the title song. He also wrote "Failure Face" and "Champion Charlie Brown".
