3.0 out of 5 stars MIXED BAG FROM COMEDY GENIUS 4 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
I have to be honest - I initially picked this up because it was so cheap! But how can you ignore the chance to own anything this fella ever did, because he was simply a genius. It's true that his humour and writing could be a little scattergun in it's approach (especially during latter years) and that some people couldn't wrap their heads around what he was trying to do at all. (Back to your Jim Davidson videos then, eh kids?). To try and capture the diversity and longevity of the man in one CD is utterly impossible but this is a pleasant and satisfying enough sampler, containing sketches, monologues, and a couple of the self composed songs which he occasionally performed on the Q TV series, (the theme tune to which opens this collection).
How funny was Spike Milligan? Well, how many TV theme tunes can you think of that make you laugh out loud? Ponder on that for and a while and you'll come to realise why the man was so special.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical madness 13 May 2012
By Hovis
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Spike Milligan, comedian, comedy writer, poet, actor, musician.....genius. Many of these talents were brought together in his songs which appeal to young and old alike. This collection is a great introduction to the man and his undisputable high place in comedic history

4.0 out of 5 stars Silly songs from the Irishman who broke the mold of comedy 17 Aug 2007
By S. Schubert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"It was a Dublin accent, charged with theatrical innuendo. Like all Irish, he could make "good morning" sound like a declaration of war, which, it usually was".

Enter the world of Spike Milligan. This is the man behind The Goon Show, the crazy popular radio comedy that made laughter landslides of Great Britain in the 50's (along with Peter Sellers and Harry Secombe). Here Milligan keeps the character count down in comparison, but the absurdity remains intact.
My rating fluctuates between a 3 and a 5. A three because my 2007 American brain doesn't get the same charge from some of the jokes as I know his audiences did. A five because this album is a novelty if anything is. All the songs are fun and ridiculous. They go from outrageous (Q5 Piano Tune), to little kid melodies (Ning Nang Nong/The Postman's Knock), to the big and breezy "Sewers of the Strand" to a song that musically sounds like a 2nd grade film strip about visiting the dentist, featuring a Baboon who wants to fly to the sun. All these from a man who was known for his love of jazz. An interesting guy.
Overall I would say that listening to this album is a bit of a trippy experience. When I hear it I half expect it to rain gumdrops. Oh, and there is evidence of Monty Python inspiration on track #3. It's a little sketch about a guy who has a Python, called Eric.
