Not the Nine O'Clock News / Not All The Albums Again 4LP coloured vinyl box

Classic BBC alternative comedy series Not The Nine O’Clock News introduced us to the talents of Rowan Atkinson, Mel Smith, Griff Rhys Jones and Pamela Stephenson. I was first broadcast 40 years ago in 1979 and during the relatively short run (the last programme was shown in 1982) three best selling comedy albums were issued and these are now collected in a new box set Not All The Albums Again, available on coloured vinyl and CD.

The box set is called Not All The Albums Again and three albums included are Not The Nine O’Clock News, Hedgehog Sandwich and Kinda Lingers (which was a double album paired with live show Not In Front Of The Audience).

The first two albums made the top ten in the UK album charts, to give you an idea of how popular these were and sketches like David Bloody Attenborough (aka Gerald the Gorilla), Points of View, General Synod’s “Life of Python”, Constable Savage, University Challenge, Hi-Fi Shop, Open Marriage, Question Time, Game For A Laugh will be well remembered by anyone who was old enough to stay up and not watch the nine o’clock news back in the early 1980s.

These are housed in a rigid slipcase and come with a booklet with brand new notes written by John Lloyd, and Tim Worthington, along with cast photos.
