3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant Memories - but not accurate ones 6 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
I listened to - and indeed taped - the show from almost the beginning of its run in the seventies. Whilst it's lovely to hear it again, as my tapes have all but worn out, the major disappointment for me is that this collection, and others in the series, are edited - and not very well or very thoughtfully. I still have the originals on tape, so it's not my memory playing tricks.
Two examples:
In a Good News, Bad News round, Tim says "Good news: I've just had a jacuzzi", after which Willie can be heard to mutter "Yes, I'm sorry about that". Why? Because in the original show, the Gargle Gargle round saw Willie making a mess of "I'm forever blowing bubbles" and apparently spraying Tim with water. In this CD the round has been replaced with a different edition of Gargle Gargle, which renders Willie's comment somewhat inexplicable.
In another edition, Humph introduces Barry's Close Quote with "I'm a bit nervous about this one, but we'll forge ahead: Blow wind, and crack your cheeks..." to which Barry adds "but for God's sake put the cat out first". Much laughter. Then at the end of the show Humph closes with "When the censor's been at this it should make 3 minutes of riotous fun." Neither of these make sense, until you know that a round of calypso and blues has been removed. Graeme and Barry's Birthday calypso had gone:
"I'd got no silver balls for my birthday cake,
I used ball bearings instead and that was a mistake
I ate a big slice, then put on my funny hat
I bent over and farted and shot the cat".
Willie's opening line to the Floyd on Cookery blues was then
"Woke up this morning, bent over, farted, shot the cat..."
And that's why the close quote was risky and the censor may have had something to say.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm sorry I can't recommend it enough 26 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
Believe me you will not regret buying this. In fact I strongly recommend it!

The show starts off admittedly at a fairly slow pace in the first few series but it really has come into its own throughout the years. With a series that has run for so long you might worry that the show becomes somewhat repetitive, while it is true that many of the games are repeated along with the occasional punchline all it really does is add to the charm of the show. You can guarantee that there is always a moment or three of superb comic wit that will have you smiling from ear to ear.

The show works very well with incredibly funny regular contestants of Graeme Gardener, Tim Brooke Taylor and hugely lovable Barry Cryer. Not to mention the superb Humphrey Lyttelton (RIP) with his dead pan delivery and his constant put-downs of the ever present Colin Sell. Nowadays the show refreshed by some new faces appearing every now and then, these include people such as Stephen Fry, Paul Merton, Rob Brydon (Tom Jones has got some serious competition) and not forgetting the uniquely musical (thankfully) Jeremy Hardy.

All I can say is, if your busy working, driving or even just sitting and relaxing and you want something to listen to you can't go far wrong with ISIHAC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brillantly brilliant 22 Jun 2012
By Andy R
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Fantastic, laugh out loud funniness. The only thing that slightly annoys me is that the BBC don't release more of the older shows with Willie Rushden on the panel, I personally believe it went a little downhill after he died, his contributiions are far funnier. Come on Anuntie Beeb, Mrs Trellis asks for more old skool ISIHAC with a bit of Willie.
