Viv Loses It

Vivian Stanshall - Sir Henry at Ndidi's Kraal

Warning: This is a largely spoken word album.

With that out of the way, this is where the Viv trail goes cold. No more albums after this. And like everything else he did, it's a damn strange place to end a career.

This record is a comedy sketch about an English colonial officer in South Africa. He's a dimwit, and a racist. Like with Lenny Bruce or Sasha Cohen, he'll push some PC boundaries here, but in the effort to make fun of his own people.

This isn't a perfect record, it meanders quite a bit, and even goes into fully incomprehensible from time to time. Still, it's a good use of three quarters of an hour. I'd venture that it holds up better than pretty much any of the big name comedy records that were so popular at the time.

Record is on Quicksharing, as it is too big for Rapidshare, and only a single track. That means grab it fast - it'll be gone soon.

i'd really appreciate the simon finn reupped if you could

thank you very much man
Thanks for the Stanshall - I've been wanting to hear this one for a long time.
