Esce in questi giorni un triplo cd della Emi che riprende gli album della Bonzo Dog (Doo-Dah) Band degli anni 1967-1972 - Gorilla, The Doughnut In Granny's Greenhouse, Tadpoles, KeynshamLet's Make Up And Be Friendly - nella versione rimasterizzata del 2007 e vi aggiunge una manciata di inediti e rarità: A Dog's Life (The Albums 1967 - 1972)

An inimitable Dada-inspired collision of music, comedy, art, robots and vaudeville is totally unique and has never been equaled and is sadly missed. The Bonzos were brilliant and continue to delight lovers of intelligent British humour. The core members of the group for most of the band's career were Vivian Stanshall on trumpet and lead vocals, Neil Innes on piano, guitar and lead vocals, Rodney ''Rhino'' Desborough Slater on saxophone, Roger Ruskin Spear on tenor sax and Larry Smith on drums. The Dada inspired lunacy of the Bonzos has never been equalled and the immortal classics such as Jollity Farm, My Pink Half Of The Drainpipe and the Urban Spaceman are still cherished by connoisseurs of original and humourous music everywhere.
