I think the tricky thing would be that it seems to go both ways. Some of the cues are the Vince Guaraldi Trio, playing his arrangements but also improvising, and the real bummer is that it sounds like there were clearly longer takes of these pieces that we’ll never get to hear (one cue on this release fades out just as someone is starting a solo). But some of the other cues are John Trotter pieces that really do seem like straightforward compositions, and ironically, I think these non-Guaraldi cues are the ones people are really wishing we could have. It really does seem like you could recreate them with a halfway competent flautist and a hi-hat, but they likely only amount to a few minutes of music, and is anybody going to bother with a “all that Peanuts music that’s NOT by Vince Guaraldi, that’s right, you’re welcome everyone” compilation?

I'm guessing that there is enough "lost" music between Great Pumpkin, Christmas and Thanksgiving that someone or some company could commission a transcription and recording, both Guaraldi and non-Guaraldi, and you would have enough for a CD or LP. It would not be that difficult IF you hired the right people.
