Categories: General Date: Oct 29, 2011 Title: New and Upcoming ReleasesVintage Beeb Comedy Favourites No: 9781445861517 6/10/11.
Released on 6th October, this is a box set of 10 CDs which were all previously available individually in the Vintage Beeb series.
As with the individual releases, this set contains facsimile vinyl-look CDs with original album sleeve notes. The following CDs are included: 'I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again', 'The Two Ronnies', 'Fawlty Towers', 'Fawlty Towers: Second Sitting', 'Hancock: The Lift & Twelve Angry Men', 'It's Morecambe & Wise', 'Frankie Howerd: Please Yourselves', 'The Best of Round the Horne', 'Round the Horne Vol.2' and 'Dad's Army'.
Due for release in February 2012 are the next batch of Vintage Beeb CDs. Releases currently planned are ‚ÄòTo The Manor Born‚Äô, ‚ÄòThe Two Ronnies Vol 2 (Me & Him)‚Äô, ‚ÄòPorridge‚Äô and ‚ÄòDoctor Who Sound Effects‚Äô. The Hancock release is ‚ÄòSid‚Äôs Mystery Tours‚Äô so is expected to be a recreation of the original vinyl LP which also features ‚Äò The Poetry Society‚Äô. Hopefully this release will feature the original artwork and will also be without the opening and closing music as per the original.
February is looking to be a great month with Acorn releasing a DVD of the 10 surviving episodes of Citizen James. No more details yet but it would be great if this were the first of many releases of archive BBC TV.
