5.0 out of 5 stars One of their best, 12 Jun 2006
The Monty Python Matching Tie and Handkerchief was the fourth album by the Monty Python comedy group, released in 1973. The full title of the album is "Free Record Given Away With The Monty Python Matching Tie and Handkerchief", and the initial pressings were allegedly packaged with a real tie and handkerchief and distributed to menswear stores, the concept being that the record was merely a 'free gift' in the manner of plastic dinosaurs with breakfast cereals. It is particularly noted for the fact that the original release on Charisma Records had two parallel grooves on side two, so that different material would be played depending on where the stylus was put down on the record's surface. The CD Track listing is as follows:

1 Salvation Fuzz

2 Elephantoplasty

3 Novel Writing

4 Word Association

5 Bruces/Philosopher's Song

6 The Adventures of Ralph Mellish

7 Cheese Shop

8 Wasp Club/Tiger Talk

9 Great Actors

10 The Background to History

11 First World War Noises

12 Boxing Tonight (Fight Of The Century)

13 Minister for Overseas Development (aka Mrs. Niggerbaiter explodes)

14 Oscar Wilde and Friends

15 Buying A Cat

16 Phone-In
