Hey everyone,

This literally popped up on Facebook and it's completely legit. Believe it or not, Lee Mendolson's children managed to find the original session recordings for the Great Pumpkin special AND without sound effects. I'm providing the official link from Craft Recordings. Coming out in August.

They really made a poor marketing decision to have identical cover art as the previous edition that had sound effects burned in.

Absolutely! No question, but it's better than NOT having the original tracks.

The tease is already up on iTunes, alongside the old album, but the audio samples aren't there yet.

So aside from the content, everything else appears to be identical to the previous release.
I’m going to have to hide the old one so I don’t accidentally play it. big grin

Love that they are pressing a couple of 45s, that's just nostalgic fun!

Great, finally the real deal but geez, noone checked those boxes even out of curiosity??? It's typical for names to vary from final titles on tapes, etc., and you don't need to be a genius or in the biz to see the obvious connection:

"Now, with the discovery of these long-lost tapes (found in boxes labeled “Big Pumpkin Charlie Brown”) fans can enjoy these classic cues in their full glory. “We know [our father] would be thrilled that we finally found this ‘Great Pumpkin,’” add Mendelson’s children. “If only we had known that we should have been looking for a ‘Big Pumpkin’ all along.”"

To be precise, it's not identical. Apart from the original tracks (which no longer have sound effects) there are 7 Bonus Tracks and all music is from the original sessions. The only thing identical is the cover art.

That was my point. Hence "aside from the content..."

No. Just the artwork is identical. That's not everything. That's one thing. But see it your way.

I just hope this ends with everybody getting the package in the mail, opening them up, and all finding rocks.

Wow, I'm as excited for this as I am for Willow! What a great year 2022 is turning out to be for releases. I love it when tapes thought to be lost forever are found!
