Monty Python’s Total Rubbish: The Complete Collection career spanning box set released on September 30th. Ultimate collector’s edition box set on CD and vinyl containing remastered versions of all nine UK-released Monty Python albums, a case bound book with foreword by Michael Palin, original Monty Python artwork and archive photos, all housed in an original, Terry Gilliam-designed slipcase.
Hot on the heels of the release of Monty Python Sings (again), the Pythons unveil the U.S. release of a career spanning box set entitled Monty Python’s Total Rubbish: The Complete Collection. Monty Python’s nine UK albums – Monty Python’s Flying Circus, Another Monty Python Record, Monty Python’s Previous Record, Matching Tie and Handkerchief, Live at Drury Lane, Holy Grail, Life of Brian, Monty Python’s Contractual Obligation Album and The Meaning Of Life – will be united for the first time to create the ultimate collectors’ edition purchase.
Released as both a CD and vinyl box set, the CD edition contains all nine remastered CD’s with bonus tracks, plus seven-inch vinyl single of their 1974 flexi-disc Monty Python’s Tiny Black Round Thing. These classic albums were cut with an all-analog signal path from the original 1/4” master tapes where available. Both editions also contain a case bound book with new liner notes with a foreword by Michael Palin, original Monty Python artwork, archive photos and an original Terry Gilliam-designed full color slipcase.
45 years after Monty Python’s Flying Circus took flight, this could very well be, in Python parlance, the final, final rip off.
