Amazon Review May Be Of Some Help
In the late 1950s, Sellers released two comedy records produced by George Martin: This new Xtra CD comprises The Best of Sellers (1958) and Songs for Swinging Sellers(1959). The most popular tracks on this album were "Balham, Gateway to the South" (a parody travelogue) and "Suddenly It's Folk Song" where a group of people end up smashing up a pub after a row over someone playing a bum note. The Songs for Swinging Sellers album, released in 1959, contained material written by Frank Muir and Dennis Norden and featured Sellers performing "Puttin on the Style" (a parody of the skiffle movement's performer Lonnie Donegan). He also appeared with guest Irene Handl on the track "Shadows on the Grass" where he plays the part of a Frenchman befriending a lady in the park. Musical direction was by Ron Goodwin. Both of these comedic highlights in the career of Peter Sellers appear on this new Xtra CD that has a running time of approx 76 minutes. The classic performances for me include "Balham-Gateway to the South" that has a Harold Baim travelogue film film approach and was no doubt poking fun at some of the films Sellers had himself seen at the cinema. The Americanisation of the pronunciation of Balham is also typical of the period. All told the albums make for a very amusing and nostalgic time. Listen out for Matt Monro singing on track 9.

Absolute and utter classic. Watch and you can see how many present day comedians have taken stuff away from this.
