Ying tong tiddle I po! Here at last in CD form is the collected singles and ep's released by the ground breaking radio comedians the Goons.

There's not a lot to say here. If you've searched this page out you're probably familiar with the Goons and their style of humour. Zany, whacky, etc. etc.. And here we have all our favourite characters - Moriarty, Bluebottle, Neddie Seagoon, Minnie Bannister, Major Denis Bloodnock, giving their all in a series of catchy, and hilarious songs.

Stand outs are the old favourites `Walking Backwards to Christmas', `The Ying Tong song' and `Bluebottle's Blues'. The later tracks are mainly Spike Milligan without Peter Sellers or Harry Secombe, and don't quite scale the heights of the earlier stuff, but even so this is a cd well worth getting, if only for my personal favourite, `Bloodnok's Rock and Roll Call'.

The tracks have been nicely cleaned up and sound as good as they have ever done. There is a good booklet with an informative essay, lots of photos of the Goons and a lot of drawings by Spike Milligan. Heartily recommended for all fans of The Goons, Monty Python, and other similar comic talents. A perfect accompaniment to the Goon show compendium series currently being released by the BBC.

Don't listen to this in public unless you want some worried looks from bystanders. They're all great tracks but 'Unchained Melody' is priceless. I nearly lost the ability to breathe listening to this for the first time. What a wonderful poke at all those desperately serious singers who've done this one. Buy it!

A good question, that.... there is nothing here that hasn't been issued before, either on "The World of the Goons" (which had all the Decca titles together with tracks by Ray Ellington and Max Geldray) and various Peter Sellers and/or Spike Mlligan compilations. Yet this is the FIRST time ALL the Goon singles have been gathered on one disc and as such is a must for the car or for relaxing to (or both, buy two!)
I have the original 10" LP of Unchained Melodies, and "The World Of The Goons", and the Peter Sellers Collection (where the EMI tracks came out in 1990!) and I still bought this with my own money!
If you are new to the Goons, this is a must buy.
If you aren't new to Spike & Co. it's still worth considering as a unique compilation.

I believe this sort of humour is only appreciated by a true goon And as I bought this as a gift is not me. As I have now heard it a few times I can say it does have its own charm.

Great value and delivered promptly. Ordered this for my 7 year old son who's loved The Goons since hearing " What time is it Eccles " he loves the songs. Bought originally for the "ying tong song" but his favourite is now "You Gotta Go Oww"' mines "Bluebottle Blues"......Got to love The Goons!

This is a wonderful collection of Goon songs which will appeal to older members of the community who also see the ridiculous side of life, as well as newcomers of a certain humour persuasion.
These are all classics in their own right.
My mate and I drove to an event with this CD playing in his new car. At certain points of the journey, we were both streaming with tears of joyfulness.
God bless you Spike!

I owned thw original recordings of these songs. They are long gone but thw memory of them remains as strong as when
we crowded around the radio to listen to the Goon shows and marvel at the wit and pure genius of the Cast.
One can still discover `new' gems hidden in the shows which are now fifty years old.
Canonise Spike Milligan! He is just as worthy as some of the Popes who have been been nominated.
