5.0 out of 5 stars Ye cannae gae wrang wi' Milligan BUUUUUT......, 10 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Goon Show: Volume 26: Bank Statement No. 349 (Audio CD)
My advice to anyone offered a BBC CD Goon Show release has got to be BUY BUY BUY BUY BUY. As the years go by the better known shows have been released already so some of the lesser vehicles are trundled out. All have had the miracle treatment whereby bits excised for Transcription Service issue and later rebroadcast have been painstakingly replaced using cardboard string and glue to give us the glorious whole. The shows here are oddities (Hence the date of "Siege of Fort Night" being 1986). There are "Vintage Goons" here. These were old scripts re-recorded in 1958 for the Transcription Service to issue ABROAD. "Fort Night" never reached the UK until '86, hence the date. Some of these shows sound s bit odd as the characters had developed between the original scripts ('53 - '54?) and 1958. Moriarty in particular had degenerated from a criminal mastermind to a mere frog eating lackey to Grytpipe-Thynne....
But we have here a worthwhile purchase for the student of insanity. While you are at it buy the Goon Show Compendiums too. Buy the previous 25 double CD issues.
I reckon (just a guess) the the BBC has issued more Goon Shows on CD than any other show from the archives. They are all well worth the money. You can't take it with you folks but you can have the show played at the crem and give your mourners a good laugh. YOU SEE! I TOLD YOU I WAS ILL!!!
