about

As the title suggests, this is a recording of seventeen of the most well known monologues ever written. There are five of the Ramsbottom stories, including “The Lion and Albert” and “The Return Of Albert,” followed by five of the Stories of Sam Small. These include the one that started it all - “Sam, Sam, Pick Up Thy Musket.” Next come the historical sagas including “Battle Of Hastings” and “Magna Charter,” followed by Robb Wilton’s famous novelty “Back Answers” and a little-heard Al Read monologue about the problems of moving a wardrobe. All the monologues are with piano accompaniment, and a lot of them are the authentic music parts that were written for and issued on the original sheet music. The enclosed 12-page booklet contains notes about each track, a history of the humorous monologue, and an appreciation by BBC comedy producer Mike Craig.
