The Goons / Peter Sellers: The Best Of The Goons (CD)
A CD collection of the Best of Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan, Harry Secombe and The Goons Show
Originally broadcast in May 1951, The Goon Show proved an instant hit, pushing the boundaries of comedy far beyond anything encountered before.
Over the next nine years The Goon Show became the most talked about radio show of all time and had even enjoyed two Top Ten hit singles. In 1959 an album entitled The Best Of The Goon Shows was released, which was in effect two edited shows from the long running series. This too proved a success, hitting #8 on the UK charts and spending some 14 weeks on the chart.
