Nobody mixed comedy and music like Michael Flanders and Donald Swann, Tom Lehrer and Victor Borge. With subjects ranging from Britain’s lost railway lines to the English weather, Flanders and Swann wrote and sang a rich comic soundtrack to the 50s and 60s. The owlish piano-playing Tom Lehrer was their transatlantic counterpart - a Harvard professor who wrote spiky satirical songs in his spare time. Completing the trio is the incomparable Victor Borge - the original ‘clown prince of Denmark’.   Now for the first time we bring you these three timeless acts together in one unique collection.

57 classic moments, including: Tom LehrerPoisoning Pigeons In The Park - Be Prepared - LobachevskyThe Old Dope Pedlar - Elements; Victor Borge: Phonetic Punctuation - Inflationary Language - Trees - Blue Danube Waltz - A Mozart Opera; Flanders & Swann: A Transport of Delight - The Gasman Cometh - The Gnu Song - Madeira M'dear? - The Hippopotamus Song, and many, many more...

All tracks restored and digitally remastered.
