Product description

This title includes thirteen episodes of the groundbreaking show starring Spike Milligan, Harry Secombe and Peter Sellers. Immensely popular and hugely influential, legendary series "The Goon Show" changed the face of British comedy. Now, for the first time, this box set collection presents the episodes in chronological order of original broadcast date. This volume includes: "The Whistling Spy Enigma", "The Lost Gold Mine" (of Charlotte), "The Dreaded Batter Pudding Hurler" (of Bexhill-on-Sea), "The Phantom Head Shaver" (of Brighton), "The Affair of the Lone Banana", "The Canal, Lurgi Strikes Britain!" (aka "Lurgi Strikes Again"), "The Mystery of the Marie Celeste" (solved), "The Last Tram" (from Clapham), "The Booted Gorilla" (Found?), "The Spanish Suitcase", and, "Dishonoured or The Fall of Neddie Seagoon and Forog". Also featured are some rare archive bonus items including out-takes and the programme "Me and My Shadows: Peter Sellers". Two illustrated booklets tell the story of the show's development with reference to original archive paperwork, plus the history of the recordings themselves. Remastered using new material and the latest technology to give the best possible sound quality, these recordings are sure to appeal to all collectors of "The Goon Show". The majority of the episodes on this first volume have been previously released on cassette and CD but their sound here will be remastered using new source material and technology.
