Format: Audio CD
This is the peak of Audio Python, their most original album as well as the one with the highest proportion of material that hadn't already appeared on the TV show. The original vinyl was unusual in that the second side of the album was pressed with two grooves instead of one, running side by side with each other, so that when you lowered the needle onto the record you never quite knew which version of Side B you were going to hear.

The album is full of high points, including the celebrated F-word version of the 'Cheeseshop' sketch, but perhaps the funniest are the ones that were written specifically for audio; 'Ralph Mellish', about a meek drone who goes to work accompanied by a ludicrously overblown suspense-style commentary which repeatedly draws our attention to the fact that nothing is happening; 'Background to History', an Open University-style programme on medieval farming in which the guest historians mumble like stoned rock stars and their assessments are presented as spot-on musical parodies of Bob Marley, Gary Glitter and Joe Cocker; the bizarre 'Record Shop', which defies description, and 'Novel Writing', in which a packed crowd cheers on Thomas Hardy as he gets 'Return of the Native' underway. Great stuff and very good value for money.

The fourth Monty Python album is again drawn mainly from the first three series of `Monty Python's Flying Circus' which is quite fortunate as the fourth series was abridged in both been titled `Monty Python' and also the absence of John Cleese. A lot of the material is not from the TV series and has been written specifically for the album adding to the original sketches in allot of cases.

The greatest sketch on the album is possibly `The Australian Philosophers' from the second series which has been improved by the addition of `Bruce's Song' which gives it a great finale. Another favourite would be the Cheese Shop Sketch from the third series of the Circus. Two sketches of suit perfection that I cannot believe that they didn't make it on to one of the earlier albums.

The second side of the original vinyl album had two separate grooves so you could hear one of two tracks when ever you put the needle down. The first few times I played it I always got one of them so the first time I got the second I was quite confused. Something the CD listener need not worry they will get to hear the fantastic `Minister for Overseas Development Sketch' and `The Oscar Wilde Sketch' without having to have there luck in.

For a fourth album without a TV series to feed it with original material this is still one of the best Monty Python albums, highly recommended.

This was an old favourite at uni, after a few drinks one evening, played it to our nephew who thought it was still funny. Recommend it with a large glass of cabernet sauvignon.

There is nothing I can say to make anyone buy this - if you like Monty Python you'll already have it, either on CD or vinyl. If you haven't? Well you're probably not a fan, anyway :-)

I bought this again because I wanted to relive the laughter - and complete my collection of Monty Python albums on CD format.

It seems there's only a small following of Monty Python fans (my wife hates it, although she did enjoy Spamalot in the theatre!) and most of my work colleagues are too young to remember it the first time round - but most of it (although some is very un-PC) is still funny now!
