Rutlemania is still happening!,
This review is from: The Rutles (Us Import) (Audio CD)
I fell in the with the unique style of Stig, Nasty, Dirk and Barry when I first saw them on the TV many years ago. I followed their story through their beginnings in the Ratkeller to their sad break up after their meeting with Arthur Sultan. I wept with them when Leggy Mountbatten went to Australia, I shared their joy, their pain, their music.
This album is a compilation of their greatest hits and includes such favourites as 'Cheese and Onions' - obviously influenced by their dabblings with tea drinking, 'Piggy in the Middle', 'Ouch!' and my all time favourite 'I Must be in Love'.
Sometime ago I heard an album by a band who were calling themselves 'The Beatles', they were attempting to emulate the sound of the Rutles but were a very poor imitation. Long live the Prefab four!
