Editorial Reviews

2007 digitally remastered and expanded reissue of this 1967 debut album from the talented yet twisted British musical troupe led by Neil Innes (The Rutles/Monty Python) and Vivian Stanshall featuring bonus tracks.. They started life as The Bonzo Dog Dada Band, then became The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, and finally, just the Bonzo Dog Band. They were originally seen as a '20's revival act but quickly developed into one of the '60's most virulent satirical acts. Features seven bonus tracks: 'My Brother Makes The Noises For The Talkies', 'I'm Gonna Bring A Watermelon To My Girl Tonight', 'Ali Baba's Camel' (Early Version), 'On Her Doorstep Last Night', 'Alley Oop', 'Button Up Your Overcoat' and 'The Craig Torso Show' (Medley). Neil Innes has written a brief band history and track by track annotation for the artwork of each release. 22 tracks. EMI.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great dada from the Bonzos! November 30, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Having heard most of the Bonzos' catalog (or catalogue, if you're in the UK), off of assorted collections and the Cornology boxed set, I leaped at the chance to own the original CD's (and this was the last one I purchased), because of the bonus tracks. As always, Neil Innes provides sharp and witty banter recounting the history of how the Bonzo tracks came into existence, and the music never fails to delight, especially 'The Craig Torso Show' where I would have nearly fell about laughing if I wouldn't have been in the car ('Craig Torso smells wonderfuuuuuuul'). Minus one star for again mis-labelling Sidney Nicholls (aka Big Sid, the guy playing banjo in the numbered group shot) as Vernon Dudley Bohay Nowell.

A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
This is probably my dad's and my favorite album that we own simply for it's ridiculusness. Some background:
The Bonzos were the "house band" for Monty Python's predicessor, a silly British tv show called "Do Not Adjust Your Set." Since they were that house band, you can't expect their music to be all that serious. If you listen closely to the lyrics, the songs are downright hilarious. I do not reccomend listening to this while doing homework, though. I just finished an essay that would've nomally taken me about one hour to write, revise, and edit, but instead it took me about 1.5 hours because I was listening to Gorilla. It's good for leisure time, but not for homework. In short, I love the Gorilla album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bonzo Dog Band - Gorilla May 9, 2009
By Barbara
Format:Audio CD
The Bonzo Dog Da Da (Doo Dah) Band's first album with all the silly jazz tunes on 78s with funny titles they dug up at old record stores. They are truly unique in this as they are the only band to revive some of this music and present it to a new generation and make it hilarious besides. It's a shame they are considered a cult-followed band. They reallly should have gotten more exposure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do Not Adjust Your Set: The Soundtrack, practically... October 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Two years ago saw the release of what was left of the proto-Python series Do Not Adjust Your Set, along with At Last the 1948 Show whose merits I've triumphed earlier. With the recent reunion of the Bonzos with British comic stars like Steven Fry and Ade Edmondson standing in for the late Viv Stanshall (trading one Viv for another in the case of the latter), following Neil Innes' recent solo tour (a really nice guy to have played a character named Nasty "all those years ago," he signed all my DVDs and put up with my jabberings quite patiently), interest has been revived enough to see the original albums put out with bonus tracks. Considering this album came out at the time they were providing music for the above mentioned show, it should be no surprise that songs like "Equestrian Statue" and "Look Out There's a Monster Coming" along with their version of "The Sound of Music" got airtime and appear here. If you liked them, if you like Python, and have a love of British dancehall music, you should pick this up. Even if you get no other Bonzo release (and your life is the worser for it), buy this in Viv's memory.

Signed,
The Urban Spaceman (er, epsteinsmutha)

Strange group of musicians. I had the original but this copy is a little different. Good sounding, but missing some tunes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Novelty music circa British 1960s September 14, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I was listening to a good college radio dj who mentioned the Bonzo Dog Band -- bought the double album (granny's greenhouse AND gorilla is the good CD package) ... Its jazz, but british music hall dixieland jazz, with archly ironic sarcastic features. Verbal, literate, weird, it includes the Elvis style Death Cab For Cutie (in the Magical Mystery Tour film) ... Many good Neil Innes piano tunes (rutles, python) ... But not for everybody. This is not a rock album, it is more like a cross between Firesign Theater and a british music hall variety act. Very light novelty stuff from 1967 London.
