... we'd all be sittin' around talkin' about a new Monty Python record... sort of.
It's actually a re-issue. But it's the kind of re-issue that includes new and/or never before released tracks. We love it when that happens, don't we fellow record lovers? Monty Python Sings (Again) is the title of the re-issue. It's a re-issue of, well, Monty Python Sings, the 1989 compilation album which gathered not quite all of Monty's musical cuts.
|The new Monty Python cover features multiple rows of teeth|
and tongue, representing the "again" aspect of the album.
|Monty Python's previous Sings album cover, featuring one set of lips, |
one set of teeth, no kangaroos, and a solitary tongue.
Also lacking the word "again."

Monty Python Sings (again) is also available in a Deluxe 2-CD Edition (still waiting on news of a vinyl release). The deluxe set contains the full Monty Python Sings (again) tracklist shown above as well as a second disc containing -- for the first time on Virgin Records -- Monty Python's Flying Circus, the original 1970 BBC soundtrack once thought unavailable on CD then released as an audiobook and then re-released as a proper CD. Now it can be yours if you buy the Deluxe 2-CD Edition of Monty Python Sings (again)!
And that's not all!
Also available is a new 12-inch vinyl single containing a new "Unofficial England Football Anthem" -version of Always Look On The Bright Side of Life, re-sung, with some slight editing, by its composer, Eric Idle. This version of ALOTBSOL does not appear on Monty Python Sings (Again). Side two of the 45 is a spoken word sketch featuring Michael Palin in An Apology From Bernard, a beleaguered record company executive. This too features not on the new LP. The package also comes with a set of six stickers, one featuring each Python in association foosball uniform.

More to come. You can bet on that. (again.)
