I've always been a fan of Hegley ever since I bought his book 5 Sugars Please, and when I saw that this CD was on Amazon, I had to get it, as I couldn't find it in the shops. Basically this is a FUN mixture of spoken poetry and songs - probably the nearest it gets to being serious is Death Of A Dog and Seaing The Sea, but it is never sombre.

John Hegley is one of the few people who can both make me laugh and cry. I bought this album when I was very ill and it helped me feel better about myself. The songs are really funny and the poems are poinient. A must for all Hegley fans and all those with a terrific sense of humour.

I saw John Hegley at the Edinburgh Festival in 1992 and this CD seems to be all the poems and songs I have been trying to tell all my mates about for years. John Hegley is someone to be listened to indeed. The simplicity of the lines and delivery is beguling and almost hides the imense subtlety of the form he is single handedly both revelling in and lampooning. Champion

Put simply, this CD is a comedy classic. A personal favourite poem of mine being Miserable Malcolm From Morecombe. Every poem / track has its own distinct personality. A great audio buy for fans of Hegleys books.

+ includes lyrics & album art booklet
+ song about cleaning your glasses - my doggy don't wear glasses, so they`re lying when they say, a dog looks like its owner, aren't they, you've got to clean your glasses, if you want to see, properly.
+ greavsie (poem)that what we need without a dought, is more of jimmi greaves.
+ Eddie don't like furniture - Eddie doesn't bolster the upholstery biz, there's a lot of furniture in the world but none of its his, Eddie don't like furniture na na, na na.

+ Yorkie (poem)- he`s a rip off
+ A dogs life - they say a dogs a mans best friend, but not a dogs best friends a man, this is not surprising when you re only there to guard his van, brother can you tell me why so many dogs get to wear the blessed collar, but not other holy togs, its one law for the people and another for the beasts, expose the canines testicles but cover up the priests.
+ pat (poem) - pat, you are fat, but you are cataclysmically desirable.
+ Colin - song about a half man, half demolition ball.
+ the briefcase (poem)

+ contact lenses out - he don't like contact lenses and he like to tell you why,
first of all to put on in you have to poke yourself in the eye, (this song has loads of saxophone, strumming guitar and infectious lyrics)
+ death of a dog - song about facing mortality in comedy fashion.
+ the Edinburgh tattoo - comments against the tattoo trade
+ poetry - BEST SONG ON THE ALBUM REMINISCENT OF THE RAMOANS.

My name is Merlynda - aka - Merlynda The Monster Poet - and I am a great fan of the tremendously talented humorous poet John Hegley - and this CD was both highly entertaining and light-heartedly musical. He has a great talent not only for created wonderfully direct poems - but also - terrific songs. A 'must-have' for all comedians and writers of humour and comical song.
