I've always been a fan of Hegley ever since I bought his book 5 Sugars Please, and when I saw that this CD was on Amazon, I had to get it, as I couldn't find it in the shops. Basically this is a FUN mixture of spoken poetry and songs - probably the nearest it gets to being serious is Death Of A Dog and Seaing The Sea, but it is never sombre.
Put simply, this CD is a comedy classic. A personal favourite poem of mine being Miserable Malcolm From Morecombe. Every poem / track has its own distinct personality. A great audio buy for fans of Hegleys books.
John Hegley is one of the few people who can both make me laugh and cry. I bought this album when I was very ill and it helped me feel better about myself. The songs are really funny and the poems are poinient. A must for all Hegley fans and all those with a terrific sense of humour.
