Monty Python’s Total Rubbish is a new nine-LP box set released on the eve of the comic group’s apparently career-ending London live dates in July 2014.

The box set features all nine of Monty Python's U.K. albums: Monty Python's Flying Circus, Another Monty Python Record, Monty Python's Previous Record, Matching Tie and Handkerchief, Live at Drury Lane, Holy Grail, Life of Brian, Monty Python's Contractual Obligation Album and The Meaning Of Life and will come with a bonus seven-inch single of their 1974 flexi-disc Monty Python's Tiny Black Round Thing.

The albums were cut with an all analogue signal path from the original 1/4″ master tapes, where available. Both editions also contain excellent hardcover books, with entertaining notes by Robert Ross, guiding you from album to album, with a  foreword by Michael Palin, original Monty Python artwork, archive photos and an original Terry Gilliam-designed full color slipcase.

In his review, Paul Sinclair at noted "these albums were recorded expecting the listener to be playing a vinyl record. Therefore there are plenty of comedic moments relating to the vinyl format itself that make far more sense (and are funnier) if you're playing the LP. Examples of this include Michael Palin saying "Sorry Squire, I scratched the record..." at the end of side one of Another Monty Python Record which then repeats ad infinitum thanks to the run-out groove, or Terry Jones screaming "Not this record!" several times at the beginning of Monty Python's Previous Record before the sound of a needle being scratched to end his ranting.

"Although the book breaks down the albums track-by-track — or should that be skit-by-skit — the design on the records accurately recreates the original where there was often not much information at all about what you would hear. If you aren't familiar with the albums I'd recommend jumping into the unknown, without referencing all the details — it's much more fun." For the whole review at click here:
