4.0 out of 5 stars Bad tribute for a superb band
The quality of the Bonzo Dog Band are apparent in this album, however, I feel what this compilation lacks is the consistancy required to make a good album, as there are a few tracks from their weakest, and final album, 'Let's make up and be friendly'. This would make a better album, and would be a more fitting tribute if it stuck to the plan of putting their good...

I have not herd all of these tracks for years, so as a combination cd this was a great treat. If you have knowledge of the bongos then you must listen to this cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad tribute for a superb band, 22 Nov 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Bestiality Of Bonzo Dog Band (Audio CD)
The quality of the Bonzo Dog Band are apparent in this album, however, I feel what this compilation lacks is the consistancy required to make a good album, as there are a few tracks from their weakest, and final album, 'Let's make up and be friendly'. This would make a better album, and would be a more fitting tribute if it stuck to the plan of putting their good songs on it, rather than the ones they were contracted to produce later in the band's career.
This 'bestiality' lacks gems such as:
Look out There's a Monster Coming! Laughing Blues Death Cab for Cutie
and other tracks from their seminal album, 'Gorilla'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doo-Dah Lally..., 20 Aug 2009

This review is from: The Bestiality Of Bonzo Dog Band (Audio CD)
I like the sheer brilliance of the Bonzos...they look at what they wanted to perform on stage and simply adapted in the early days songs from the 20's & 30's and arranged them into a set they were happy with and thus began their short-lived life as first performers and then as recording artistes...
Beastiality is not a studio album, but simply a compilation of some of their work and whilst it will give you a great insight into their act...this can only whet your appetite for more...Search what the Bonzos have brought out...there's modern work out their as well to obtain...with brand spanking new members of the Bonzos in Ade Edmonson, Stephen Fry and Phil Jupitas for starters...Paul Merton has also been on tour with them only a few years back.
If you start with this...I guarantee that you'll get hooked and join the happy throng of being Doo-Dah Lally...

5.0 out of 5 stars Barking mad songs by a very competent bunch of musicians., 2 April 2014

Heard this years ago at friends and thought at the time that I must by the CD, but never got around to it. Having heard the Bonzo's again on this CD, it still made me laugh.

These guys combine masterful musicianship with clever lyrics and great humour - always a good listen - they would definately appear on the bill at my "fantasy concert".

4.0 out of 5 stars Barmy splendour, 8 Nov 2011

A fine compilation of most of the Bonzos' best tracks, at a good price. A good introduction, though if you're really keen you may want to look at some of the more extensive compilations, or (dare I say it?) reprints of the albums. The music is complicated, silly and very funny, and the wit hasn't suffered from ageing at all.

Wow, this took me back. Talented musicians with witty songs, its all a bit like Monty Python, you find yourself quoting lines to friends at work and in the pub.

If you have heard about Bonzo Dog but don't know their work this is the album for you. A good cross section of their songs that will make you love them
