If you like Python's film of The Holy Grail, then the Album of the Soundtrack of the Trailer of the Film of Monty Python & the Holy Grail is a definite must.
I got this before the film, which I bought on 2 disc DVD, and it is brilliant.
It gives highlights of the film but the real gem is all the other bits that Python did to fill the gaps up. One of the highlights is a professor of logic pointing out the floor in the Witch made out of wood scene.
Buy this and be the envy of the person looking over your shoulder.

Originally produced at a time before the advent of not only DVD but also video recorders, `Monty Python and the Holy Grail' was issued as a record for those people who wanted to enjoy it in the comfort of their own home. Python had had previous success with a series of albums based on their television shows and like with these they recorded a series of links to give the record purchaser the reassurance they had heard some Python not heard by the people whom only saw the film.

The links here are primarily based on an imagined premiere of the film and if truth be told are of such a lower quality that the film that it would have been better to omit them in favour of more dialogue from the film.

The Holy Grail's sketches are of a consistent quality and everyone is a success. Sketches such as the Black Knight, the Three Headed Knight, Tim the Enchanter and the Knights that say Nee are amongst the best sketches of not only Python lineage but of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars One day, lad, all this will be yours 10 Nov. 2000
By Gavin Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Its production budget was dwarfed by its successors, 'Brian' and 'Meaning of Life', but in many ways the quality of writing is higher and seems closer to the Python ideal, whatever that was.
There are the gratuitous appeals to schoolboy humour -- the gore of the knight with no limbs suggesting they call it a draw, and the crude sounds of the wrist-wobblers in the rear stalls. But this is the album that also contains the Witch Trial sketch, the Professor of Logic, the "How do you become King, then?" sketch, and the Knights who say Ni.
The high standard of humour isn't always maintained, but the soundtrack added several linking sketches that weren't in the film, and most of them work.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Flogging Of The Dead Horse Of What's Left Of Monty Python & The Holy Grail!" 7 May 2007
By Harvey J.Satan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Of all of the Monty Python Re-Issues,this one is by far the biggest rip-off!

The ORIGINAL version of this album is probably Monty Python's FUNNIEST album. But THIS VERSION,is a tepid re-issue,and the "Bonus" material is an insult to fans!

Once more... no "NEW" liner notes. It's a reprint of the entry from "The Monty Python Encyclopedia"(1999). The artwork is not "NEW",it's merely previously seen items from Terry Gilliam's sketch books. The "Bonus" Material consists of "Documentary" which is just the audio portion of Palin & Jones's travelogue from the "Holy Grail" 2-DVD Set! ( Yeah,funny how the visual jokes lose a lot on a C.D.). The other two "bonus" items,"Arthur's Song" & "Run Away Song" ( not to be confused with the "Spamalot" songs of the same names.),are apparently written by Neil Innes,but these versions are NOT Neil Innes performing them. These songs are some male & female voices singing along to an accordian. No credits to identify what these are at all.

Definitely not worth re-purchasing.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Executive CD Edition of the Monty Python Soundtrack 1 Jun. 2005
By Lawrance Bernabo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There was an actual need for the "soundtrack" album to "Monty Python & The Holy Grail," which allowed us to help memorize key bits of dialogue while waiting for the movie to finally be released on DVD (which was worth the wait just to have the LEGO version of the "Camelot" song). Now, of course, this album can serve as a companion to the original Broadway cast album for "Spamalot," the current hit musical inflicted upon the masses by Eric Idle on behalf of the Pythons.
To be clear, this soundtrack includes much more than what you heard in the original film. After all, this is the Executive CD Edition, a fact that you are reminded of at both the beginning and the end of each "side." Then, before the movie actually "starts" you have a tour of the classic Silbury Hill Theater and a live broadcast from the premier of the film, including a narration of the film's opening and the "You're Using Coconuts" routine. Then they finally shut up and get to the bits from the film. My favorite remains "King Arthur and the 'Old Woman': Lesson in Anarcho-Syndicated Commune," which I tried without success to work into several papers in graduate school. The episode involving "A Witch" is followed by a "Lesson in Logic," which proves, unless you are using intuition, that just because a woman weighs as much as a duck does not prove she is a witch. Not everything is here, with the encounter with the Black Knight being the most obvious omission. But you do have the songs for "Camelot" and "The Tale of Sir Robin," and the almost song from the sequence regarding Sir Lancelot at Swamp Castle.
There are intrusions from the Python gang throughout the album, including a "Bomb Scare" and "A Shakespearean Critique" provoked by the appearance of Tim, the Enchanter. None of these are as good as the sarcastic French soldiers at the "Castle of Louis de Lombard," the instructions for the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch from Armaments, Chapter 2, Verses 9 to 21, for dealing with "A Foul-Tempered Rabbit," and the exchange at the "Bridge of Death" that inspired the message on my brother's answering machine. Fortunately, now I have my DVD of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" and can watch what I want, when I want, without resorting to this audio version. However, I must commend this album for sounding like the movie and not for sounding like a movie on a record, which is what we were saddled with in the old days.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the funniest things I've ever heard 8 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This cd takes all the best parts of the movie and then add's more bonus clips that wheren't actually in the movie... Overall a very funny way to relive the movie... Especially since not many people have TV's in thier cars it's almost like being able to watch the movie while you drive... I would recommend this for all...
5.0 out of 5 stars The parking lot is self draining! 18 Jan. 2014
By Deluco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Well taken, Concorde!
CONCORDE: Thank you, sir! Most kind.
LAUNCELOT: And again... Over we go! Good. Steady! And now, the big
one...Ooof! Come on, Concorde!
[thwonk]
CONCORDE: Message for you, sir.
[fwump]
LAUNCELOT: Concorde! Concorde, speak to me! "To whoever finds this
note, I have been imprisoned by my father, who wishes me to marry
against my will. Please, please, please come and rescue me. I am
in the tall tower of Swamp Castle." At last! A call, a cry of
distress! This could be the sign that leads us to the Holy Grail!
Brave, brave Concorde! You shall not have died in vain!
CONCORDE: Uh, I'm-I'm not quite dead, sir.
