I had heard countless goon shows including this one before I found out that the Last Goon Show Of All had come out on videotape. When you listen to a Goon Show, you see many things in your mind's eye. But to actually see them doing a show in the Camden Theatre! I'd like to see them do THAT on television, folks! Well, when I finally did, it made me ever so much more envious of those lucky barbed wire hurdlers who actually got to be in the Camden Theatre when the magic was flowing. And I had the most odd experience when Bluebottle began, shall we say, speaking. There was bluebottle, as he usually manifested, on the surface of my upper medulla oblongata. But wait, the Tele show was still going on, and Peter Sellers's lips were moving! Was HE making THAT sound? I knew it was true, but the illusion of lip-sync just didn't hang together. After about five viewings I was able to pull the two together. One of the most wonderful things about the Goon Show is what a good time the three of them and others off-mic are obviously having together, and this show is no exception. It is particularly lovely to see Spike in a good mood (but that's another story...). After you've heard some shows, do watch this one. And by the way, this is a reissue intact without cuts, unlike the previous foolishness. Irreplaceable.

OK, so this is not the funniest of the Goon Shows, but it is an important event. It really was the last Goons Show, as sadly Peter Sellers died so young, and it celebrated the 50th annivesary of the BBC. It is amazing that something so anarchic as the Goons was used for this important national milestone. The main part of the CD, the typical Goon Show is, however, very funny even if the ending has more similarities to Spike Milligan's 1970's TV series than to the radio Goon Shows. It does, as it should, have all the main characters, all in fine voice. Some of the preliminaries are not so interesting, but some are great like Spike's version of "I Left My Heart in San Francisco". Once the show really starts it is great fun through to the end. This CD is the most complete version of the show available and it is coupled with "At Last it's the Go On Show" which is a fascinating documentary on the Goons. Highlights of this are the description of the birth of Bluebottle's voice and the wonderful exerpt - "What Time is It Eccles" which alone would be worth the price of the CD.

To be honest you have to have grown up listening to the goons on the radio or you maybe have to be slightly mad if you find them and enjoy the crazy humour but they are well worth a listen

A piece of history on 2 discs, really good value. Downside? You have to like the Goons.
