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.

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!!

.....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....
after collecting the BBC records this is a welcome chanche to hear the complete broadcast with the incredible music of Ray Ellington and max Geldray (Max van Gelderen) our dutch contribution to the shows.
Not to forget Wally Stott and his/her orchestra. man that band could swing!
