Customer Review

on 7 March 2006
I have to say I am disappointed with this selection.
There was so many good monologues and sketches that could have been chosen for a tape which were passed by that it's sad that we are left with just the cynical, bitter and profane moments from Dave Allen's shows. Even most of the monologues weren't as good as what we have recently been seeing on the BBC in England from the 1971 series.
Did Dave Allen really MEAN all the stuff he came out with on these particular segments? I contrast this with what he was like in the early days when he came over as rather sweet and innocent (ok well, perhaps not that innocent!) but certainly CHARMING(with the hidden naughtiness) we all knew was there.
His smile was marvellous and he was most attractive to look at and most of the sketches were really funny.
I know this selection was supposed to have been chosen by Dave Allen himself; but it misses so much good stuff and is not the whole picture at all.
I can only hope there is better footage around on other discs.
