Flanders, the perfect after dinner speaker with a delightfully mellow and versatile baritone voice; Swann, the supreme partner, both on the keyboard and in the singing. Michael Flanders is expert with language, Donald Swann with music: the latter achieving the highest art -- that of singing counterpoint with MF while playing the perfect accompanist on the piano to them both. All this, and it is VERY funny: even when the jokes are dated they retain their punch and they are told and sung so well that they still convey their humour, and, on occasion, biting satire. These are timeless pieces with duets, solos, monologues and instrumental displays linked by MF in inimitable form. There will never be the like again.
