Not any one of these but all of them, plus an amazing connection between the three 'goons' themselves. Spike with his script and lunacy (in a nice way), Sellers with his constant laughing and asides and of course Neddy Seagoon as the 'hero', all gel together like a wonderful chemical reaction. The four episodes are such fun and can be listened to again and again - great on a long journey in the car.
From the very first time I heard The Goons on the radio I was hooked, I just couldn't get enough. Like so many others, I would talk to my friends in Bluebottle or Eccles speak and all who heard knew exactly what we were doing. The Goons is more an institution than just a comedy series.
If you like daft, then The Goons is most definitely for you.
The jacket notes could be better though, and I think that at least one of the shows has appeared on another tape/cd somewhere ....
Still liked it though !
