Album Notes

Not all that music-oriented, despite the title. Which is no big deal, as this contains some of his best sketches. These include a spot-on parody of a BBC critics' roundtable, an interview with a typically foul-mouthed writer, a straight-faced description of an incomprehensible play, and a lengthy pick-up sequence with the talented comedienne Irene Handl. Musically, the highlight is "Puttin' on the Smile," which mocks the then-young folk boom by interviewing an unsufferably hip and untalented troubadour. The LP was reissued in its entirety as part of the Celebration of Sellers box. ~ Richie Unterberger
