Wrestle Poodles and Win! The Tigers Head Days

I just found this album in our local Poundland Store. It is the the original Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band with guests Stephen Fry, Phil Jupitis, Adrian Edmonson and Paul Merton. It was recorded during the reunion tour a year or so ago, which I was fortunate to see.
The Bonzo's were an early musical influence on me (along with others from my school) as we used to go to the Tiger's Head on a Thursday evening to see them, in those days the lead was the late great Viv Stanshall. It took all the four special guests to replace his unique brand of humour and musical zaniness. If you get a chance do invest a pound and buy; sadly The Tiger's Head is now closed and is in the midst of being demolished. Yet another place of my youth consigned to the dustbin.

PS The proper edition is a two volume CD set; the Poundland version just has the first CD; maybe the second will be in another edition.
