Well it's here.
I received my copy of Craft's Recording of "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" and I'm not impressed.
So the big question first, does it contain Fx?
Yes it does; nothing's been removed. ARGHHHH
Is it any better than the Youtube recording?
Possibly, but hardly noticeable.
In fact, many tracks fade out abruptly.
So who's better?
One thing the Youtube version has that this doesn't:
the complete "Graveyard Theme (extended)"
and the complete "It's the Great Pumpkin Ending".

You be the judge!

Thanks. I'll stick with my existing Vince Guaraldi LPs and Great Pumpkin DVD.

The MFX was already disclosed in the thread, as well as outrage that it isn't mentioned in any retail description for it. An MFX track means it's going to be the same as heard in the show, including fades, etc. Just no dialog. Might have been used for dubbing foreign language video.
Are the extended tracks available on other albums? If so, too bad they weren't or couldn't have been included.

Apparently they ripped this "Craft" soundtrack after the Coca-Cola and Dolly Madison ads were removed.

Here's an idea:

If a label can raise $50K to re-record an orchestral score, why not hire a competent group of studio jazz players to recreate this soundtrack and record it well? I'm listening to it now on the inter webs, and this would be no trouble whatsoever to transcribe. I'm sure it could be done for a reasonable amount.

The "Great Pumpkin Waltz" on this new release is a full one-minute longer than the previous version on Concorde's "The Definitive Vince Guaraldi" (3:30 versus 2:29).
