Stanshall, Viv - Sir Henry At Rawlinson End Sir Henry At Rawlinson End
Pop Used - LP CAS 1139 Charisma
Beautiful 1978 UK Embossed Cover Original With Colour Poster. Appears Unplayed. "To Call Sir Henry At Rawlinson End (The First Of Stanshall's Sir Henry Spoken-Word Sagas) Bizarre Is Like Saying Carter Has A Few Little Liver Pills. The Former Bonzo Dog Band Frontman Lets His Imagination Run Riot On What Is, Essentially, A Parody Of British Radio Serials Mixed With His Interpretation Of P.G. Wodehouse, All Tempered By The Deflating Sensibility Of, Say, Monty Python. Does It Make Sense? No. Is There A Plot? No. Does It Matter? Not A Bit. Stanshall Is Superbly Entertaining, A Wordsmith Who Can Trip From The Sublime To The Louche In The Wink Of An Eye, From Wicked Puns To Appalling Jokes In A Tale (Of Sorts) Set In A Country Estate, And Told In More Accents Than You Can Shake A Stick At. The Music (Uncredited, But Quite Probably Former Bandmate Neil Innes) Ranges From '20s Perky To Neo-Village Brass Band, Making An Apt Accompaniment For The Words. Allow Yourself To Get Lost In The World Of Rawlinson End For A While. It Might Be Disorienting, But It's Also Quite Enchanting. With Stanshall As Your Guide You'll Get Thoroughly Lost, But Come The End, You Really Won't Care. He's So Verbally Adept That His Web Of Words Will Leave You Happily Caught. So Maybe, Ultimately, It Really Is Completely Mad. It Doesn't Matter. It's Madness Touched With Genius In Conception And Performance, And That's Always Been A Rare Enough Commodity. Stanshall's Individual, Eccentric Talent Shines Like The Dong With The Luminous Nose." - Chris Nickson, AMG.... more details
 
Stanshall, Viv - Teddy Boys Don't Knit Teddy Boys Don't Knit
Pop Used - LP CAS 1153 Charisma
1981 UK Blue Mad Hatter Label Original Housed In A Textured Jacket With Illustrated Custom Inner Sleeve Featuring Complete Lyrics. LP Appears Glossy, Unplayed. Cover Art By Viv. “…….The Closest Stanshall Ever Came To Reinvoking The Unique Essence Of The Bonzo Dog Band. Certainly It Is Infinitely Preferable To The Bonzos' Actual Efforts At Reunion -- The Lamentable Let's Make Up And Be Friendly From 1971, Or 1992's Execrable Single "No Matter Who You Vote For The Government Always Gets In." Close Scrutiny Of The Credits Reveals That, In Fact, Neil Innes And Roger Ruskin Spear Helped Out On Several Tracks (Along With The Mighty Richard Thompson On Guitar). Approached In This Spirit, Though Teddy Boys Don't Knit May Not Match The Doughnuts In Granny's Greenhouse In Terms Of Sheer Comic Genius And Melodic Invention, It Is Still An Album To Treasure By One Of The Great Unregarded Geniuses Of British Music And Literature….” Christopher Evans, AMG... more details
