In short, this is unquestionably the best compilation of available Goons recordings available. "Rommel's Treasure" is the best Goons episode written. This is Milligan at his superlative best. As all Goons fans know, Grytpype and Moriarty are after treasure; in this case it is Jim Rommel's buried in a cunning manner. This episode never lets up for a moment, and the whole volume is worth purchasing just for the entrance of Bluebottle. "Ill met by Goonlight" features a coherent plot (by Goon standards) as Lieutenant Seagoon is despatched to Crete along with a few helpers to capture General Von Gutern, armed only with the latest weapon developed by Major Bloodnok (cue sound effects). Does he capture the naughty type German? Buy it to see! "Iwas Monty's Treble" gets off to a roaring start and even the insurance premium on Major Bloodnok's underwear may rise. This is worth listening to several times in a cowards air-raid shelter with your film reference guidebook.
The final episode is a non-Milligan creation but you won't notice. Join Neddie and his Rosewood hand operated piano as he writes his memoirs. Polish your nose with Ping and have a gorilla with me. "The Seagoon Memoirs" is beautifully crafted, creative writing. If this isn't the best Goons collection then my name's Henry Crun!

As usual i will say... anything from the BBC collections volumes 1-11, and the two EMI discs are worth purchasing if you're interested in The Goons.

This, being volume 6, fits in nicely, and i am close to agreeing with another reviewer here, in that this is a very very fine volume indeed. Fine, fine, fine.

All four episodes are first rate, with great performances and strong (but ludicrous) plots, and of course, gags a-plenty.

All four episodes are, one way or another, based around THE WAR, which no-one can make fun of better than Milligoon, seeing as how he was right in the thick of it. Meanwhile, the fourth episode was not even written by him, but Larry Stevens and Maurice Wiltshire are completely on his wavelength here, and it totally fits into the Goon ethos.

This is definitely one of the best Goons CDs you can get, if not the best.

Well now, it's the Goons - what more do I have to say?. I had these on tape and had to replace with CDs.

Thud me thnefics and Fetch me thuns!
(and other time-filling-in phrases!)
Be goon to yourself and buy this collection of the Goons' best work. All the best characters are here with the aid of the new steam-leather microphone. It's lights, camera, knees, teeth, corsets and action!
Features my favourite episode; Ill Met by Goonlight and one of the longest gags ever featured in a Goon Show episode that I know of. I first came across these brilliant pieces of work when I was a young bluebottle reading a fly paper. My dad had a load of the cassettes and I was an instant convert. Spread the Goon word and convert the masses!
And why is that gas stove wearing a hat?
It's going out!
