This CD contains his greatest hits - the funniest songs written and performed by the man himself. Only Bill Bailey could write a song about racism using Zebras as subject matter, or put to music the story of a bloke called Terry stealing the "leg of time".
I would therefore thoroughly recommend this CD to anyone who enjoys a silly song and a good laugh!
His 'spoof' performances (Richard Clayderman plays 'Three Blind Mice' etc.) are spot on, and I'm so pleased to know that I'm not the only person in the universe who would get to that particular point in the Grieg Piano Concerto and mentally insert "'ave a banana!!" :D
Be aware, though, that some of the excerpts are very, very short (Scooby Doo, for example), and the material does suffer a little for being studio-bound - hence only four stars rather than five.
Niggle aside, this is a fun CD, with some really excellent tracks. Many will be familiar from Bill's tour shows ('Medieval Porn'/'Jean Michel Jarre'/'Drum and Bush' etc), but others were new ones to me (not having been fortunate to have encountered the mildly apocalyptic 'Insect Nation' before) and I thoroughly enjoyed them.
It does miss the studio audience and you cant appreciate some of it without seeing bill bailey live , but if you have , you'll love it!
