2.0 out of 5 stars Thank God for the Bonzo's!, 12 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Do Not Adjust Your Set [DVD] (DVD)
A lot of Monty Python material has not worn very well, and the fact that these embryo MP's could get this stuff on tv at all speaks volumes. Desperately unfunny sketchs that shouldn't have made it into a 6th Form Review. Only the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah give anyone a reason to buy this rubbish.

2.0 out of 5 stars A missed opportunity., 12 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The selection from The Establishment is poor. A BBC radio documentary in my possession has funnier extracts ('You need a Degree these days to be filthy'....) and surely someone, somewhere will one day have the wit to release the whole gig. This just isn't worth the entry fee, and, fifty years on, does Frankie no favours.
The other side isn't any better, so don't waste your money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Shame about the songs......, 27 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sunfighter (Audio CD)
Love Grace, love the Airplane, thought 'Blows Against the Empire' was top-notch (apart from the opener), but this set suffers because the songs are just not strong enough. Some good playing here and there, but it can't disguise the paucity of the material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like nothing else around.....then or now., 27 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An aural dreamscape that far trancends the time and place of it's creation. These songs, whole or in part, will reverberate in your head long after the last note has faded away. A unique achievement by two major talents. Buy it and treat yourself to something strange and rare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of what's left., 24 Jan. 2011
This review is from: VU (Audio CD)
These out-takes are better than anything that appeared on 'Loaded' and make for a more interesting album than 'White Light, White Heat'.
No doubt if this stuff had been released at the time it would have sunk without trace like all their other records,but here the band sound tight as well as if they are having fun.Buy it and join the party.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing Hamfat, 20 Dec. 2010
This is an excellent collection, essentially the same tracks once issued on Ace of Clubs vinyl,but with one track less.
Does this matter? Well,frankly yes, as the missing tune is probably the best thing they ever did.
Sometimes called The Weed Smokers Dream,the world got to know it better through the likes of Peggy Lee, under the title Why Don't You Do Right?
On the other hand, anyone who didn't know the above would still be buying an ace collection by a band whose, for the time, unusual line-up works brilliantly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Time changes everything....., 18 Nov. 2010
A good snapshot of the times (especially the DJ telling an unresponsive crowd how Don got the rain to stop) and as always the songs are good, but this whole set collection adds little to the original vinyl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Going up!, 18 Nov. 2010
Fabulous Elevator music.Forget the Dead or the Airplane,these guys were several Light Years ahead of the competition. Rare stereo mix,blah blah,the irony is that these tracks must sound better than anything you could have bought by the band in the Sixties.
So don't delay;buy today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mickie's masterpiece., 18 Nov. 2010
Donovan had the vision and the songs,he also had an ace producer in Mickie Most. Add in top-notch sidemen like flautist Harold McNair and the result is a strong set that stands the test of time well.
