Classic Album 'Monty Python Sings (again)' to Be Rereleased 7/15
On July 15, 2014, Monty Python's classic 1989 album Monty Python Sings will be reissued on Universal Music Enterprises (UMe). Monty Python Sings (again) will hit the shelves during their series of highly anticipated Monty Python Live (mostly) shows at London's O2 Arena, where they will be performing much of the classic material from the album.
Released on two remastered CD formats (both including a 32-page booklet featuring lyrics plus notes by Robert Ross from new interviews with the Pythons), the new version of Monty Python Sings (again) will contain brand new recordings, never-before-released gems from the Python archive and remixed Terry Gilliam cover artwork. The 2-CD Deluxe Edition features their debut album, Monty Python's Flying Circus, recorded live in London at Camden Town Hall in May 1970.
One of the never-before-heard archive tracks included on Monty Python Sings (again) is "Lousy Song." Originally recorded during sessions for the Monty Python's Contractual Obligation Album in 1980, it was conceived and performed by Eric Idle and the late Graham Chapman. "Lousy Song" can be viewed now on Monty Python's YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/MontyPython
In the words of Eric Idle:
"It is the only totally improvised sketch I can remember Python doing. Graham enters the recording studio when I'm listening back to a song I have recorded. I think it is very funny."
45 years after Monty Python's Flying Circus took flight, this could very well be, in Python parlance, the final, final rip off.
