I love the Python albums dearly but this collection is terrible. The nice Gilliam cover art and 7" bonus redeem it to some extent but the problems are unavoidable.

The BBC album is grouped with the rest for the first time, and is the same CD version as has been available for some time. The quality is fine for a badly-engineered mono record, but there's a strange quality issue at the end of side one where it sounds like a damaged vinyl rip has been patched in.

The rest are the 2006 CD editions. They are basically the same transfers as the UK CD versions from the 80s and 90s except slightly louder. They feature some excellent - though unannotated - bonus tracks, largely pulled from the cancelled rarities albums planned for 2005. Here's some of the errors:

Another Monty Python Record is yet again the unfinished rough cut version present on all CD issues. This was a halfway-house version never intended to be released and is full of incomplete editing/mixing and material vetoed from the final, released, approved version. It's a good remaster but given that it's not the right version it's largely academic. Previous sounds good and is the correct version, thankfully.

Matching Tie and Grail sound truly terrible. Mastered from the same falling-apart, error-riddled tapes as have been used since the 1980s, they are muffly, are destroyed by oxide damage and sound like bad cassettes. Tie in particular is incredibly lo-fi and both sides of its stereo are constantly wandering out of synch with each other (making a horrible distant warbling effect), and Grail has huge amounts of stereo damage. On top of this, Tie has been drowned in brand new sound effects which were never supposed to be there.

Beautifully packaged collection of the entire set of Monty Python's recorded work. It loses a star for the fact it's added extra sketches that are poorly recorded or just not very good onto the end of most of the CDs. I understand there are completists out there but it would have been better to put the rubbish on a separate CD instead of padding out the good ones with it.

I've been looking for the Python albums on CD for a while. This package - when the price is right - is superb. The booklet is excellent, featuring new interviews and information and the content is wonderful, with lots of extras. The packaging is lavish and all in all a great purchase.

The LP Vinyl box set is a wonderful purchase that I cannot hesitate to recommend. Yes it may not capture certain elements of the original releases, such as the cut out on the "matching tie and handkerchief" but each album cover and sleeve is full colour and most importantly the vinyl recordings capture some of the unique elements of the originals such as the skipping scratch on the end of the first album or twin concentric tracks that put two sides on one side of the THREE SIDED "matching tie and handkerchief". The major negative is that the quality and care of the vinyl appears to have been victim of (some of the more recent) mass produced releases that require a little cleaning before playing due to minor scuffing. The discs all work fine but one tends to find this happens these days unless you buy the heavyweight or limited colour disc releases where naturally more care is required around the manufacture. The box set also comes with a beautiful hardcover book that provides the history around each album. And for those that want to know, there is a digital download provided for this release, giving you access to the recent digital releases (with extras).

The disc for Life of Brian wouldn't play in any CD player I tried, including my car. I tried to get a replacement from Amazon but all they would do was give me a refund. Can I be bothered to buy it again? No.

9 cds, 1 vinyl record and a booklet what more do you want for your money. Although it has to be said this is mainly for python completists, rather than the casual fan, as it hardly has any new material, and the new material it does have isnt that funny.

I remember back in 1974, when the first episode of Monty Python’s Flying Circus was broadcast on the local PBS station WNET in New York. I seem to recall that there had been a bit of publicity before the series aired, and I made sure to not miss it. I was immediately hooked. Shortly afterwards, I started buying their records, which contained some of the sketches from the show. By the time the show had aired in the US, it was no longer on TV in the UK, but there were already three or four albums available.

I remember nearly memorizing some of the sketches, and I especially recall the loony way the albums were presented. There was even one album – Matching Tie and Handkerchief – which had three sides, which was particularly clever. (On side two, there were two concentric grooves, so depending on where you placed the needle of your turntable, you’d get one of two sides of material.)

Over the years, I saw all the movies, then later bought the series on DVD. While not everything stands up very well now, there remains a huge amount of wonderful comedy in the 45 episodes and three feature films that were produced.

As you may have seen, the Monty Python gang (minus the late Graham Chapman) got together recently for a run of shows in London, one of which was broadcast to cinemas, on TV, and which will soon be released on DVD and Blu-Ray. (Amazon.com, Amazon UK) It wasn’t a great performance – they’re old, and they didn’t seem to really have the rhythm – but it was enjoyable.

At the same time, they released a set of all their CDs, Monty Python’s Total Rubbish. This lavishly produced box set contains all nine CDs, a 10-inch vinyl single, and a hardcover book with notes about each recording and track listings.
