5.0 out of 5 stars Superb collection 27 Nov 2011
By AquaViola TOP 1000 REVIEWER
This 11 CDs set brings together five sets of four episodes, each of which is highlighting the enormous contribution given by the five long time players of Just a Minute: Peter Jones, Clement Freud, Derek Nimmo, Paul Merton, and Kenneth Williams. They include the very first episode of Just a Minute, four episodes from the 1970s, five from the 1980s, and 10 from the 1990s.

There is also a bonus disc, which includes the first episode of 1992, and an episode where Clement Freud didn't turn up, and saw Ian Messiter, the creator of the game, chaired and we find out how good Nicholas Parsons is as a panellist for the only time since the second season.

These are great, vintage recordings, though with some of the earlier ones the sound quality is not exceptional. For the price, it is particularly good value. For those who want a more modern recording, I can recommend Just A Minute: Complete Series 57 and Just A Minute: Complete Series 58.

Incidentally, 2012 sees another milestone in Just a Minute, with a new television series and Just a Minute going to India, and there are many releases in both book and audio form early on in 2012, so please check back for those. Long may this shall continue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't Be Fooled 14 Nov 2011
By Andy R
This isn't quite what it seemed. First off, this might just be my version, but the first 4 discs are all out of order going by the booklet (bought elsewhere Imust add). The main gripe I have is that I expected that the majority of the shows would have been the 4 original protagonists (Williams/Freud/Nimmo/Jones), with addtional later episodes featuring Paul Merton. In fact out of 22 episodes included, only 3 are with these 5 inimitable players, the others include a strange assortment of guest artistes. Whilst there are still some funny moments, you can't beat the originals. If you're the same as me, you might be better going for some of the other collections avasilable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed up discs but a great show! 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase
This is a great collection and an amazing listen but disc 3 and 1 are transposed, incorrectly labeled. Also the track names are not all available in iTunes upon import. Annoying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracks me up 29 Jan 2014
Always loved this show, one of the greats from the BBC R4 light entertainment slots.

I think like others I might have preferred more with those we think of as the A team here, but there are many bits to treasure. As one who remembers the wonderful man from "Don't Ask Me", I love the appearance of Magnus Pyke; he's almost like Brian Blessed on "Have I got News For You"; the rest just don't know what to do with him. Another analogy might be (stop me if I've used it before) Richard Attenborough's character's line in "Jurassic Park"; "I must apologise for Dr Malcolm: he suffers from a deplorable excess of personality."

Great stuff if you like this sort of humour. I do. It reminds me of an old friend now sadly lost that used to chuckle through this with me. Five Stars. There can be no other choice.
