5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Goon comedy
Lovingly restored by Ted Kendall, these four episodes from 1957 have never before been released and are a "must have" for Goonatics worldwide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Goon comedy, 28 April 2011
This review is from: The Goon Show: Volume 28: The Indigestion Waltz (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
Lovingly restored by Ted Kendall, these four episodes from 1957 have never before been released and are a "must have" for Goonatics worldwide.

In The Great Regent's Park Swim, listeners will be enthralled by the fascinating story of the discovery of swimming by Professors Eidelburger and Yakamoto, and the sound of a river being driven away by the Chinese. When Neddie does not sink after drinking a bottle of green liquid, Grytpype and Moriarty quicky patent the invention as 'swimming'. What's the betting that the end of the day is signalled by Little Jim's catchphrase... "he's fallen in the water!"?

In The Space Age, Neddie is launched into space as the first human satellite - he didn't really want to go, but it was a convenient way of eluding the Military Police who had been searching for him since he deserted in World War I. Find out what happens when they finally catch up with him, four hundred and ninety-two miles above the earth. And why was he wearing no clothes?

In The Policy, Neddie is persuaded to purchase £10,000 of life insurance, complete with an interesting little booklet entitled "One hundred easy ways to get deceased". Grytpype and Moriarty quickly see the potential of making a few bob... Will they?

In The Stolen Postman, Neddie is postman-knapped (he's no longer a kid,) and transported into the harem of the Sultan of Dhurtistan in a crate marked "Human sacrifice for exploding ceremony". When he realises his fate, Neddie has to think how to get out without being exploded. The moral of the story is of course, beware of thinking, because thinking is... all in the mind, you know.

5.0 out of 5 stars The lunacy continues.......(thankfully), 6 July 2011

This review is from: The Goon Show: Volume 28: The Indigestion Waltz (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
Ah; more Goonery from the fab three. Another quartet of inspired madness from the pen (where he can be seen every afternoon at 2) of the one and only Spike Milligan. The four tales make as much sense as any other in the series and have an even greater relevance for todays world of doom, gloom and coalitions!.

If you are a Goon fan already, you won't need me to tell you to get your copies asap, but if you are new to the Goons then this is as good a place to start as any.

Much needed and please keep 'em coming!!

Count Jim "Strains Supreme" Moriarty, Winner of the Golden Richard and the only man to have shot a telephone directory in flight.

(p.s.......should be 10 stars!!!!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet again a must for fans!, 11 Jun. 2013

This review is from: The Goon Show: Volume 28: The Indigestion Waltz (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
Yet more manic comedy from the masters of radio comedy!

Good clear recordings again with the opportunity to skip tracks, which is handy if you are running out of time to listen to say the music interludes; BUT for me it would not be the same without Max "Conks" Geldray or "The Red Bladder" himself Ray Ellingna with his quartet and mellifluous light jazz tones - Love him!

I wanted this Goon Show as another to complete my set and yet there are still many shows that haven't made it onto CD as yet.

As usual I found the Cd of the goon shows first class I suppose you have to be a bit mad to appreciate their humour they were great and it also brings back memories of sitting in the room listening to them on the radio. The Goon Show: Indigestion Waltz v. 28 (BBC Audio)
