Ying tong tiddle I po! Here at last in CD form is the collected singles and ep's released by the ground breaking radio comedians the Goons.

There's not a lot to say here. If you've searched this page out you're probably familiar with the Goons and their style of humour. Zany, whacky, etc. etc.. And here we have all our favourite characters - Moriarty, Bluebottle, Neddie Seagoon, Minnie Bannister, Major Denis Bloodnock, giving their all in a series of catchy, and hilarious songs.

Stand outs are the old favourites `Walking Backwards to Christmas', `The Ying Tong song' and `Bluebottle's Blues'. The later tracks are mainly Spike Milligan without Peter Sellers or Harry Secombe, and don't quite scale the heights of the earlier stuff, but even so this is a cd well worth getting, if only for my personal favourite, `Bloodnok's Rock and Roll Call'.

The tracks have been nicely cleaned up and sound as good as they have ever done. There is a good booklet with an informative essay, lots of photos of the Goons and a lot of drawings by Spike Milligan. Heartily recommended for all fans of The Goons, Monty Python, and other similar comic talents. A perfect accompaniment to the Goon show compendium series currently being released by the BBC.

Unchained madness. The best rendition of Unchained Melody by a country mile (whatever that means). Sheer bufoonery. Must go and play it again.

Don't listen to this in public unless you want some worried looks from bystanders. They're all great tracks but 'Unchained Melody' is priceless. I nearly lost the ability to breathe listening to this for the first time. What a wonderful poke at all those desperately serious singers who've done this one. Buy it!

A good question, that.... there is nothing here that hasn't been issued before, either on "The World of the Goons" (which had all the Decca titles together with tracks by Ray Ellington and Max Geldray) and various Peter Sellers and/or Spike Mlligan compilations. Yet this is the FIRST time ALL the Goon singles have been gathered on one disc and as such is a must for the car or for relaxing to (or both, buy two!)
I have the original 10" LP of Unchained Melodies, and "The World Of The Goons", and the Peter Sellers Collection (where the EMI tracks came out in 1990!) and I still bought this with my own money!
If you are new to the Goons, this is a must buy.
If you aren't new to Spike & Co. it's still worth considering as a unique compilation.

This has finally enabled me to introduce my 7 year old son to the wonderfully unhinged world of the Goons. His grandad was delighted when he started singing the Ying Tong Song, which says it all really. As ever with the Goons, they're a bit much for some people, but if you like their style, this is a great addition to the shows.

Delightfully silly from beginning to end, this album is a must-have for any Goons fan. The 14 tracks include all of their singles releases between 1955 and 1978 including The Ying Tong Song, I'm Walking Backwards For Christmas and Bloodnok's Rock & Roll and all the well know characters from the radio shows feature at some stage. At first glance, this album may appear to be a duplication of the album "The World of the Goons" but whereas that album includes other artists associated with the programme, Unchained Melodies is pure Goons and is the album to buy.
