Bonzo Dog Band - Gorilla (expanded / remastered)

SKU 15-EMI088111
At last the great albums by the great Bonzo Dog Band (formerly the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band) get a proper treatment here and this also includes 8 bonus tracks! This includes notes on each of the songs by band co-founder Neil Innes, some cool and rare period photos and a package design by Phil Smeee. Originally released 40 years ago in 1967, Gorilla was the band's debut and the only album to feature the original lineup including Vernon Dudley Bohay-Nowell and Sam Spoons. It shows their roots in 'taking the piss' out of British 'trad jazz' and music-hall/vaudeville traditions, although hints of the rock direction of later albums are apparent too. This has many of their early classics, including the true classics "Big Shot", "The Intro and the Outro", "Jollity Farm" and many others. The roots of Monty Python, among much, much more, appears here!
