Innes, Neil - Taking Off / Book Of Records (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-HUX-061
This reissues two really hard to find albums in one package. When I was about 17-19 I was a HUGE Bonzo Dog fan and I collected all the related releases and I never did find these two albums, so it is a pleasure to hear them now.

"Neil Innes is one of the most important figures in British musical comedy. He has the rare ability of a side-splitting satirist who can also write perfectly straightforward, catchy pop songs. Neil originally found fame in the mid 1960s with The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band. After the demise of the Bonzos, he went on to work with, among others, Eric Idle and Monty Python. This CD includes two of his best loved solo albums, released together on one CD for the first time. The 8 page booklet features extensive liner notes and rare photographs. Taking Off was originally released in 1977 and is a collection of songs ranging from the corny country of Crystal Balls, to the sugar coated offering of La Vie En Rose. In between we have songs about love, death, sex, murder, fantastic places, God and religion. The Innes Book of Records was originally released in 1979. Among other great tunes, it contains the very lovely instrumental Theme, plus tales of teenage love in Kenny and Liza, and married life in Love is Getting Deeper."
