This CD is a short and has the advantage of being cheaper than the original release. But unless you are short of money, go for the full version. Even better, get the boxed set of CD's with the extra tracks not on the original LPs.

If you can remember Flanders and Swann then you must be 70 or over and I remember them well. Brilliant duo and this has on it "MUD, MUD, GLORIOUS MUD." brilliant

This is Good, But Seek Out "The Complete Flanders and Swann" Import Box Set 3 May 2006
By Mark Arnold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's interesting how some things from Britain catch on in the US while other things do not. Take for a start the musical comedy team of Flanders and Swann. Though they released albums and even toured the US back in the 50s and 60s, they are certainly not as well known here today as say Monty Python.

Even Tom Lehrer (who is US based) has a bigger US following than Flanders and Swann despite having similar comedic styles of writing and singing satirical songs accompanied by the piano and the fact that they all retired their comedy music careers roughly around the same time (circa 1967).

There is an import CD box set that contains all three of their original albums, plus some bonus unreleased tracks that are all very funny. Perhaps they weren't a bigger success here because Michael Flanders' delivery on some of his opening remarks is so dry and so droll at times, that it requires a bit of paying attention to in order to get the joke, something we Americans don't seem to be able to do, easily (US comedy style seems to veer more towards the Three Stooges, which I highly enjoy as well).

I think they're great and it's too bad that they are no longer with us (Flanders died in 1975, and Swann in 1994). I highly recommend these albums especially if you are a Lehrer fan!

This is good stuff, but the whole album is better 22 Nov 2006
By Edward Trumbull - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I grew up with Flanders and Swann, and still quote them at almost any opportunity. You may have to listen pretty hard from time to time to get their jokes, but it's well worth the effort. (I especially like it when one of Flanders' quips obviously catches Swann off guard and cracks him up.)

Sadly, this appears to be excerpts of Flanders and Swann's "At the Drop of a Hat", but it's missing five songs: "Kokoraki", "Too Many Cookers", "Vanessa", "Tried by the Centre Court", and "The Youth of the Heart".

If you can find "At the Drop of a Hat", get that instead of this. If you can find the "Complete Flanders and Swann", get that!

Hilarious, as advertised. 1 Sep 2005
By grandma martha - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought this CD for the Hippopotomus Song but enjoyed the rest of it too. I missed some of the words because of the heavy British accents. The liner notes don't have words to the songs - I may have to get them off the web so I can follow.
