We used to live in an old water tank on a rubbish tip. We got woke up every morning by having a load of rotting fish dumped all over us! There were a hundred and fifty of us living in t' shoebox in t' middle o' road. We lived for three months in a paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six in the morning, clean the paper bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down t' mill, fourteen hours a day, week-in week-out, for sixpence a week, and when we got home our Dad would thrash us to sleep wi' his belt.
We used to have to get out of the lake at six o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of 'ot gravel, work twenty hour day at mill for tuppence a month, come home, and Dad would thrash us to sleep with a broken bottle, if we were lucky!
We used to 'ave to get up out of shoebox at twelve o'clock at night and lick road clean wit' tongue. We had two bits of cold gravel, worked twenty-four hours a day at mill for sixpence every four years, and when we got home our Dad would slice us in two wit' bread knife. This recording captures the very last night of the run. It is a particularly vocal audience enjoying the well-oiled machine of sketch comedy.
There are few concessions to the recorded medium, although Charisma boss Tony Stratton-Smith does get a name-check in the Election Special sketch. The majority of the sketches are from Flying Circus and vary slightly from their television counterparts, although "Cocktail Bar" was written for the third series but not used.
The team also revived sketches from At Last The Show , including "Secret Service", " Wrestling " and " Four Yorkshiremen " - the latter on its way to being adopted as a Python standard.
Neil Innes provided the musical interludes, while Eric Idle's then wife Lyn Ashley replaced regular Python actress Carol Cleveland in supporting roles.

I remember having the vinyl when I was a teenager, and after dozens of playbacks, as video wasn't as common as it is today, for me these performances sound like the real thing, more than the original Flying Circus TV versions that preceded them.
This is definitely Monty Python at their peak. The CD comes with a nice foldout containing some interesting info on one side and lyrics of Bruces' Philosopher's Song on the other side.
