Product description

Book Description

Four more hilarious episodes of classic Goonery starring Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe and Spike Milligan.

About the Author

Spike Milligan was perhaps best known as one of the Goons. He went on to become one of Britain's foremost comic writers and performers. His bestselling titles include Adolf Hitler: My Part in His Downfall, Puckoon and Where have all the Bullets Gone? He died in 2002. Born in Oldham in 1923 Eric Sykes was first introduced to showbusiness whilst in the RAF and went on to write for hit BBC radio shows and appear in TV variety shows whilst writing for comedy greats such as Peter Sellers and Frankie Howerd. Although he is over eighty, Sykes continues to work, having recently starred in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

I was wary when I received this disc here in the U.S. All the show titles were already known to me from earlier BBC and EMI collections. For fans who know the episode "Dishonoured" only from the EMI Best of... albums, Vol.30 offers a rare treat - the original broadcast version.

The EMI LP was based on a "Vintage Goons" re-recording, and it is pretty damned funny, even abridged. In the version here, some of the jokes may be the same, but the energy is much higher and everyone is in top form.

As for the others, they are also rarities in that they consist of second performances on the same broadcast days. I have not yet compared the "Dreaded Batter Pudding Hurler" included here with the earlier released versions, but such exercises in Goon archaeology are what loving the show is all about.

So bring on Vol. 31 - pish-too!!

I have all the previous 29 Goon Show double discs. As they are digitised by Ted Kendell the sound quality as always is excellent. This set Vol.30 is no exception and contains a couple of rather rare shows. Long Live The Goons.

Classic shows revisited.... Dishonoured (ser 5, 1954) - this was indeed issued by EMI in abridged form in1959 - but the Goon Show Companion says that this show was in fact abridged from "Dishonoured - Again" the last time that script was used -
.....The Batter Pudding Hurler Of Bexhill On Sea was issued on the first "Goon Show Classics" LP (that started the BBC issuing the stuff themselves) which itself has just been released under "Vintage Beeb" CDs - but this is a second, never transmitted version -
......The Hastings Flyer is well known as is the Pevensey Bay Disaster which used the same script and
......China Story issued in a butchered EMI version - and apparently that version is still unavailable to the BBC for issue as a CD although they can broadcast it - then again, who would have forecast todays Goon CD market back in 1967 - this is a second recording of the show.

Definitely a must have for Goon obsessives and completionists like myself - I think the China Story here has been in one of the Compendiums. The EMI "Dishonoured" is currently available from Hallmark and many many "public domain" reissuers, and has been issued by EMI on CD a few times as well.
I didn't know Audio Go had gone belly up....

I have every BBC released Good show CD. Too young to appreciate them at childhood my father used to wax lyrical about them. Well, my children now quote from Milligan and Co. In truth some episodes are funnier than others, but once you get into the characters they have a charm of their own and most are truly hilarious. If you have a military background (esp. Army) you'll love them. Truly, they should have on them; 'genius at work' for Milligan and Co.

Through most of my youth and even into my twenty's I was addicted to the fun of listening to the Goon Shows. Even today I am still collecting copies of unrecorded from my youth. At the age of fifteen I purchased from the Exchange and Mart an open spool recorder plus a kit to used the deck and the cabinet together. It was used every time a Goon Show broadcast. Shame it was so long before the CD was invented. I still have a session once a week listening to the Goon and still laugh at their antics. A worthy purchase from Amazon.

I love old British radio comedy and The Goon Show is one of my favorites. As a Yank, I don't get all the references, but I love the surreal quality of Spike's humor. You never know which way he's going to jump.
