Peter Seller's Nov '74 interview with Michael Parkinson (BBC Goons comedy accents spoken-word-&-singing - REH 402)

£4.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Peter Sellers had many talents...he was a superb comedy actor ; he had a devastating gift of impersonation ; he invented memorable characters for radio, records and the cinema and, although he denies it on this record, he was a raconteur without peer.

In the course of this edited version of the Parkinson Show from November 9th 1974, we have a rare opportunity to experience his storytelling gifts. Slipping instantly from accent to accent, Yorkshire to Yiddish, Indian to Hooray, Bluebottle to Bloodnok, Guinness to Gielgud, he tells anecdotes and stories from the 'Show Biz' world that make other people's 'Show Biz' stories seem as funny as the West Middlesex Phone Directory.

He also plays ukelele ! Scattered amongst the accents and hilarity there is, also, the authentic voice of Peter Sellers - talking of his childhood, his early career and, most poignantly, his thoughts about fulfilment, achievement, and his future, which was to end so tragically less than six years later.

Includes renditions of : i) I Haven't Told Her, She Hasn't Told Me ii) When I'm Cleaning Windows.

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) VG+/EX-.
