Mike Harding was at his prime when this was recorded and the title alone has expectations. This was however, the start of the end in terms of his mass popularity.
His earlier work was from folk clubs and the music showed this, hence his popularity was from that audience as well as those who enjoyed his unique brand of comedy. When touring and recording this album however, his music moved away from raw folk, and lost its cutting edge. So did the comedy.
There are some excellent "vintage" monologues such as Ackroyds Funeral and Bring on the Rosy Cheeked Girls, but most of the material is more predictable and not so funny for it.
The songs are OK, but you get so used to hearing Mike Harding accompany himself on guitar, that the full band playing a more jazz (even country & western) accompaniment makes songs sound like background music in a restaurant. Sad, as risqué songs such as The Upper Echelon and These are my Uncles have some wonderful one liners...
If you wnat to complete a Harding collection, it is well worth it. If you want to have a laugh in general, buy it. But don't expect the earlier style of wonderful music based on traditional folk and don't expect the comedy to hit you like it did in the '70s.
