Description

Nobody mixed comedy and music like Michael Flanders and Donald Swann, Tom Lehrer and Victor Borge. Literate, ever-topical and endlessly inventive, these masters of musical humour still sound every bit as funny a generation or more later in a collection that cherry-picks the best moments from their respective recording careers.

With subjects ranging from Britain's lost railway lines to the English weather, Flanders and Swann wrote and sang a rich comic soundtrack to the 50s and 60s. The owlish piano-playing Tom Lehrer was their transatlantic counterpart - a Harvard professor who wrote spiky satirical songs in his spare time. Completing the trio is the incomparable Victor Borge - the original 'clown prince of Denmark'. Now for the first time you can purchase these three timeless acts together in one unique collection.
