Review Text 2009 digitally remastered reissue of this album from the dirty-minded (but beloved) English comedian. Although remembered by most for his hugely successful TV shows and the numerous much-loved sketches and characters they spawned, Benny Hill also had a lifelong involvement in music, limericks, witty rhymes and suchlike, which this fantastic album sees him explore to the full. Bolstered by the presence and raised public awareness afforded by 1971's Christmas UK #1 single, in the title track, this LP proved very popular upon it's release and as still every bit as amusing almost 40 years later. Many will be familiar with poor old Ernie's tale, but also explored here are the exploits of other Hill creations (principally of the female variety, naturally), alongside some hugely clever wordplay numbers ("Broken Hearted Lover's Stew" in particular is quite astounding) and some of his spoken word and dialogue pieces (performed in front of a live audience).
