Vivian Stanshall - Sir Henry at Rawlinson End

Sir Henry at Rawlinson End is a largely-spoken word, solo comedy recording by Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band member Vivian Stanshall. It had its origin in Vivian Stanshall's recordings for the John Peel Show on BBC Radio One in the mid 1970s, and a track on the Bonzo's 1972 album Let's Make Up and Be Friendly (United Artists UAS29288/Sunset SLS50418) by Neil Innes and Vivian Stanshall (which was also previewed on Peel's show in 1971, with Innes & Stanshall appearing under the name Freaks).

You, Sir, are a Whacko of the Highest Order. The sheer brilliance of your selections leaves me staggering, and I salute both you and you IMPECCABLE taste. Snurzle!

Words do not do this album justice, so mathematics will have to suffice. (Tolkein - elves) x Goon Show + orchestration by the bastard child of Welk and Barrett = Rawlinson/2.
