Product Description

Product Description

Four-CD box including all five of their albums and various non-LP singles, rarities, and solo efforts. Of most interest to anyone who's enough of a Bonzo nut to invest in this, naturally, are the rare items, which comprise about half of the third disc (which also includes the Let's Make Up and Be Friendly album). There are the two 1966 singles for Parlophone, predating their first album, which find them at their most 1920s vaudevillian-influenced (even on the cover of "Alley Oop"). "Mr. Apollo" appears in its German version (which actually isn't German, except for a spoken passage by Vivian Stanshall), and its non-LP B-side, "Ready Mades," is a gentle folky tune that sounds like a Keynsham outtake. There's also one early solo item apiece from Vivian Stanshall (his 1970 single "Labio-Dental Fricative," on which Eric Clapton plays), Neil Innes (his 1974 single "Re-Cycled Vinyl Blues"), and Roger Ruskin Spear's "Trouser Freak" (from his 1971 EP). As an extra incentive, there are also lengthy historical liner notes. For all its length, however, it doesn't have everything by the Bonzos: BBC sessions are on Unpeeled, outtakes and rehearsals on Anthropology, and the 1966 outtake "On Her Doorstep Last Night" is on the By Jingo It's... British Rubbish compilation. --Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

4.0 out of 5 stars "We'll keep rhinoing through" 4 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If only all collections were as good as this; absolutely everything the group released in their lifetime and a few solo tracks besides. All 5 Bonzos albums are here and, even early on, the diversity and musicianship was impressive; it's little wonder McCartney was a fan. Neil Innes frequently produced material which belied the group's "wacky" status; Ready-Mades in particular is gentle, beautiful and yet somewhat unsettling and it is not alone in the Bonzo catalogue. Meanwhile Viv Stanshall and the others displayed an eccentric and very English humour which mixed vaudeville and surrealism in equal measures ("Rhinocratic Oaths" and the famous "The Intro and The Outro" are good examples of this), resulting in a musical legacy which remains original, genuinely funny and incisive. Who else could have taken on so many musical genres so convincingly whilst still maintaining the firmly "in-cheek" status of their tongues?
Charming, occasionally disturbing and definately unique, the Bonzos work, like that of their close televisual cousins Monty Python, remains a superb document of their era without having aquired a molecule of the rust and tarnishing that usually accompanies the passing of time. Just perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really wild, General - thank you sir 23 Dec 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you're only going to get one Bonzos collection on CD, this is the one to have. It's the most comprehensive - 72 tracks, including the whole of each of their five albums: Gorilla, The Doughnut in Granny's Greenhouse, Tadpoles, Keynsham and their 1972 reunion album, Let's Make Up And Be Friendly. And there are some extras, or "Dog Ends" as they are described, including their quite splendid debut single, My Brother Makes The Noises For The Talkies.

The accompanying notes on the Bonzos by Brian Hogg include such delightful details as that their hit single I'm The Urban Spaceman was produced by Paul McCartney under the pseudonym Apollo C Vermouth. Apparently McCartney agreed to do it after Vivian Stanshall met him in a pub. The notes also point out that the Bonzos were part of the new wave of British comedy in the 1960s which led to Monty Python's Flying Circus. It's an interesting parallel - in the Bonzos' whimsical lyrics one can hear prototype Python dialogue, and in the way they borrowed earlier styles and subverted them one could see a musical precursor to Terry Gilliam's animations.

But The Bonzo Dog (Doo Dah) Band are best appreciated on their own terms. Here is the work of a group of people of considerable musical ability and rich comic imagination, having a great time taking musical, comic and social conventions and turning them upside down. It's an approach which has stood the test of time. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life affirming brilliance!!!! 16 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
If my flat was burning down and I only had time to save one item from my music collection it would be this delirious box set, hands down, without question.
To call the complete works of The Bonzos inspired comic and musical genius is to condemn with faint praise.
This material is capable of reigniting faith in the human race in even the most manic depressive of souls. The songs are brilliant musical compositions first and foremost. Each one a perfectly honed pop gem that The Beatles themselves would have been proud of. In fact songs like Yellow Submarine, Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, Octopus's Garden, When I'm Sixty-Four, etc sound amazingly like Bonzos cast-offs (great tunes but not funny enough). The 72 tracks on these three CDs are by turns hilariously funny, whimsically poignant, deeply disturbing and wildly surrealistic (in a way that clearly fired the imaginations of the Monty Python team) while always retaining genuine compassionate insight into the human condition. This is what, for me, elevates them to the level of true art.
Praise be that people like this lived, met, hit it off and created work of this magnificence. Vivian Stanshall, Neil Innes, et al should be knighted, beatified, sanctified, whatever, forthwith and long shall their names echo down the halls of posterity! In some weird and wonderful alternate universe they would have been as big as The Beatles in the 60's and the Fab Four would have become the 'fondly remembered cult band'.

4.0 out of 5 stars much better than just buying 'Gorilla' 6 Aug 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Those of you toying with the idea of getting the Bonzo's debut album 'Gorilla', why not get this instead? You get everything from their five LPs (Gorilla and Tadpole being the best) plus other bits 'n pieces as well. Of course there's the Urban Spaceman but much much more - personally I wouldn't do without Death Cab for Cutie, Shirt, Equestrian Statue, Monster Mash, My Brother Makes The Noises For The Talkies, Jollity Farm, Canyons Of Your Mind (even without the intro bit about sequins) and Button Up Your Overcoat. Viv and Neil, we love you!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius.. lest we forget 4 Oct 2004
By Andy
Format:Audio CD
Everyone harps on about how funny these albums are... yes! they are satiricaly cutting humour jibes at the ludicrous, mimsy middle class,and oafish brits, with suburbian misplaced pride and a bleakness of life... yes hilarious observed lyrics... YET.. lets not forget, not only were they true eccentric english.. but they also wrote incredibly catchy, brilliantly fused, clever and fun music - with some 'rock' well ahead of their time, as well as ' electro-techno surrealism'. This is a brilliant chance to immerse yourself in six and a half albums of fun. I recomend you get this as a backbone to your CD collection! Dada for now... im orf to paint my drainpipe pink!!!!
