I recall listening to thois on vinyl as a child - amused by the various sketches and songs, amazed that all the different voices were from one person. This is Peter Sellers at his best, with a variety of material that parodies different styles - children's songs (Auntie Rotter), travelogues (Balham, Gateway to the South) and political speeches - what about the workers indeed ? We all love daddy, well wouldn't it be fun children to have two daddies ? So up on a chair behind the door with your axe, children, here's comes papa. This material will appeal to anyone who is a fan of the Goons or Monty Python type humour - satire with an off-beat edginess about it. Certainly over time such material can become dated, but Sellers generally touches on such universal elements of human behaviour to send up that even a re-listen again on CD still makes me laugh. A bargain at only three quid ! Muvver.

Worth it for "Balham - Gateway to the South" alone.

This was bought as a fathers day present for my Dad who used to have this on a record. It always made me laugh as a kid and is just as funny today. Worth paying the little extra for Amazon product to get free postage, beautifully packaged and prompt delivery

An old favourite, now added to my CD collection in place of the original LP. I used to know the words off by heart when I was first introduced to it in the early 1960's

One of my favourite records from the 50's which I used to listen to when I was at sea. It has some classic tracks, most of which I could recite!!
