Format: Audio CD
In the late 1950s, Sellers released two comedy records produced by George Martin: This new Xtra CD comprises The Best of Sellers (1958) and Songs for Swinging Sellers(1959). The most popular tracks on this album were "Balham, Gateway to the South" (a parody travelogue) and "Suddenly It's Folk Song" where a group of people end up smashing up a pub after a row over someone playing a bum note. The Songs for Swinging Sellers album, released in 1959, contained material written by Frank Muir and Dennis Norden and featured Sellers performing "Puttin on the Style" (a parody of the skiffle movement's performer Lonnie Donegan). He also appeared with guest Irene Handl on the track "Shadows on the Grass" where he plays the part of a Frenchman befriending a lady in the park. Musical direction was by Ron Goodwin. Both of these comedic highlights in the career of Peter Sellers appear on this new Xtra CD that has a running time of approx 76 minutes. The classic performances for me include "Balham-Gateway to the South" that has a Harold Baim travelogue film film approach and was no doubt poking fun at some of the films Sellers had himself seen at the cinema. The Americanisation of the pronunciation of Balham is also typical of the period. All told the albums make for a very amusing and nostalgic time. Listen out for Matt Monro singing on track 9.

I have always been a fan of Peter Sellers from his Goon days through to "The Pink Panther" films. This is a replacement for my vinyl version which I lost along the way some years ago. Pure genius, a must buy for any fan of Peter Sellers.

I feel so lucky to have found this gem of a record with Sellers at his best. Balham gateway to the South is a classic along with singing in the bath recording

Like a previous reviewer, i was looking forward to re-hearing 'Songs for Swingin' Sellers', which i'd enjoyed in the '60s. The humour is great but i was very disappointed to find that 4 of the best tracks of the original lphave been omitted[Contemporary Scenes 1-4], which makes me feel that this product has been mis-labelled.

I was eagerly awaiting a copy of 'Songs for Swingin Sellers' as I had lost my LP Copy several Years ago although the packaging and cover is correct and everything printed does state correctly ,the Actual disc is 'A Celebration of Peter Sellers'
