The idea was gradually forming of a record being a performance in its own right and not just a reproduction of a live performance. It was inevitable that some of the critical assessment of subsequent generations would grumble.

Clamped between headphones in a recording studio, they managed to put on a live show more exciting, more intimate , than any since they'd left the Cavern.
McCartney's original idea, according to Blake, was for the Beatles to pose in an Edwardian-era drawing room in front of a wall filled with portraits of their heroes. Pepper cover as "a microcosm of the Underground world". Pepper cover piqued a frenzy of analysis.
He notes several elements of the cover that were interpreted as evidence of McCartney's death, including: the Beatles are supposedly standing about a grave, the hand above McCartney's head is regarded as a "symbol of death", and on the back cover, he is turned away from the camera.

He remembers the record as "the soundtrack to that summer, and that winter You just could not get away from it. I put that down as one of the great honours of my career.

Pepper to relate his psychedelic experiences and journey towards higher consciousness. One reader complained that all the songs except "Sgt. Pepper" and "When I'm Sixty-Four" were "over our heads", adding, "The Beatles ought to stop being so clever and give us tunes we can enjoy.
Pepper became both "a milestone and a millstone in music history". In his view, it paled beside the band's previous two albums, since "There's about half the songs I like and the other half I can't stand.
Pepper as "George Martin's new album". And there's got to be a little bitterness over that. Pepper , Sandy Dennis decided to abandon her solo career as a folk singer and joined the band Fairport Convention.

All involved with the project initially regarded the stunning success of A Charlie Brown Christmas as something of a one-time fluke, but the second official Peanuts television special— Charlie Brown's All Stars!
Guaraldi spent most of summer composing cues for the Halloween-themed special, strongly encouraging Mendelson to consider making "Linus and Lucy," which had been featured prominently in the Christmas special, the unofficial Peanuts theme.
Guaraldi did not include the song in the music score for Charlie Brown's All Stars! Guaraldi recorded a fresh version of "Linus and Lucy" for the opening sequence as a sextet, featuring Budwig and Bailey, as well as trumpeter Emmanuel Klein , guitarist John Gray, and flautist Ronnie Lang. Lang's flute counterpoint was featured throughout the new version of "Linus and Lucy", resulting in the song ultimately becoming the Peanuts franchise signature melody.
Guaraldi went on to compose scores for thirteen additional Peanuts television specials, as well as the feature film A Boy Named Charlie Brown. Although Vince had never scored anything else and although I was basically a documentary film maker at the time, we started to work together on the cues because we both loved jazz and we both played the piano.
So he would bring in the material for each scene and we would go over it scene by scene. Most of the time, the music worked perfectly. But there were times we would either not use something or use it somewhere else. We went through this same process on all sixteen shows. Although there was always some left over music, most of the time what he wrote and performed is what went on the air. Guaraldi's final three albums released during his lifetime were recorded for Warner Bros.
This was done in part to fill the void left by a lack of soundtrack albums to accompany the successful television specials, Charlie Brown's All Stars! Guaraldi responded with new renditions of eight of his most popular scores from those programs on his first release, Oh Good Grief!
Guaraldi was then given complete artistic control over his sophomore, self-produced Warner effort, The Eclectic Vince Guaraldi , resulting in an unfocused and overindulgent album that was not well received by both critics and consumers.
Though deemed a focused improvement over the previous album, Warner did not promote the album, ultimately choosing to not retain Guaraldi at the end of their three-record deal. His live performances included musicians who specialized in funk and soul as well as traditional jazz. All Peanuts soundtracks scored after Play It Again, Charlie Brown feature Guaraldi favoring electric keyboards over traditional piano as well.
You're a Good Sport, Charlie Brown , Guaraldi's penultimate music score, fused his fusion jazz style with the funk, disco and pop music that was popular at the time coupled with the use of the ARP String Ensemble synthesizer.
Guaraldi biographer and historian Derrick Bang put the musician's later years in perspective, saying, "As jazz clubs were closing in the s, with the advent of rock 'n' roll —a development that put many jazz musicians out of work—Guaraldi embraced the enemy, adjusting his style and approach to include electric keyboards.
By the mid-'70s, he had become a respected veteran in what remained of the declining Northern California jazz club scene. The amount of wealth Guaraldi accumulated from his perpetual Peanuts scoring opportunities plus royalties from previous work allowed him to live comfortably in Mill Valley, California. He desire to continually perform at small, local clubs was not due to financial necessity but because he wanted it like that.
The monumental success garnered from his Peanuts work resulted in lucrative offers coming in from all over the U. He never branched out from there; he never really wanted to. He'd get offers, but he'd tell me, 'I just want to do this; I'm having a good time, and I'm satisfied with it'.
When you're sure of where you are as an artist, you don't seek to go other places and prove it. Guaraldi died suddenly at age 47 on February 6, ,  after suffering a massive heart attack.
The evening before, he had dined at Mendelson's home and was reportedly not feeling well, complaining of indigestion-like chest discomfort. He'd be able to play Peanuts music on the ship, and he was excited about that.
We talked about the cruise and the Peanuts shows, and I said that I didn't know what the next one would be yet, but that we wouldn't start until he got back. But he also said he wasn't feeling well, and had gone to see the doctor. The doctor thought Vince might have a diaphragmatic hernia , and that they might have to deal with it. The following morning, on February 6, Guaraldi awoke with a bad cold and remained in bed throughout the day.
But once we were back in the studio, he started complaining that his stomach was bothering him. That evening, after concluding the first set at Butterfield's Nightclub in Menlo Park, California , with his interpretation of the Beatles' " Eleanor Rigby ", Guaraldi and Zimmerman returned to the room in which they were staying that weekend at the adjacent Red Cottage Inn, to relax before the next set.
Zimmerman commented, "Vince was feeling sick to his stomach. He got up to go to the bathroom I tried to bring him around but wasn't successful.Album Only follow: Options.
