Synopsis

Album Description
Out of print in the U.S.! 2007 remastered and expanded version of the second CD from The Rutles featuring seven additional bonus tracks. The Rutles are the infamous Beatles parody band created by Monty Python's Eric Idle and Bonzo Dog Band's Neil Innes. On this 1996 collection of 'unreleased' recordings (actually, it's mainly material recorded specifically for this release), Idle's Dirk McQuickly is nowhere to be seen but Innes' Ron Nasty is joined by original members Ricky Fataar (Stig) and John Halsey (Barry) for more Beatle-esque fun. Features the single 'Shangri-La'. EMI Gold.

CD Reviews

We've Arrived, and To Prove It We're Here

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Neil Innes (Nasty) has a great ear for parody. This album kicks off with "Sgt. Pepper" take-offs in which Barry doesn't need any help from his friends, and moves on to mock the White Album and solo Beatles so accurately it'll make your head spin cause the lyrics are so earnestly--silly.

I can't pretend to be / Someone who pretends to be / Someone else
Or so my pretend friend tells me

Rutles forever!"

"This second album by the Rutles is more like a real Neil Innes album with some Rutles touches. It has some more serious, mature songs on it, and even has some of the last recordings of Ollie Halsall, a guitarist and singer whom Neil had known since the early 1970's. Ollie sang the Paul McCartney songs. Some of the songs were recorded before his death in 1992 of a drug overdose, so Neil didn't have to sing them since he usually sang the John Lennon (Ron Nasty) songs."
