. . . it'd be much better than it is - well, if you've seen "Monkey Business" you know what I'm talking about!

This CD contains music from two of the Marx Brothers' early Paramount films, "The Cocoanuts" (their first) and "Monkey Business." Since these films were made in the late 1920s and early 1930s, the sound quality isn't the best (and the dialog occasionally carries over in the music), but considering that a CD like this is hard to find, it's certainly worth adding to your Marx Brothers collection. Not only do you get Chico's chord-smashing, finger-accented piano playing, or Harpo's dreamy, beloved harp playing, you get some of the Brothers' comedy bits from these two movies - such as their hilarious Chevalier "impersations" and the immortal "Why-a-duck?" exchange.

Just a tiny bone to pick: Harpo's solo in "Monkey Business" is actually called "I'm Daffy Over You" (written by Chico!), not "Sugar in the Morning" as the CD case says.

To call this CD remastered is a bit misleading. I would have gotten the same results by sticking a cheap microphone near the speaker of an equally cheap television set.

The songs and sounds of the Marx Brothers brought back great memories but the skips in the CD and the overall quality of sound was a bit disheartening. If you love the Marx Brothers then buy this CD for the memories, as for the quality, I would definately think twice.

I was hoping to find the judicial from these movies, and I got more. This wonderful collection has the various versions of the songs exactly as presented in the movies, plus some delightful dialogue pieces. You will not be disappointed.

Very nice compliation of the music from two Marx Brothers classic films, as well as some bonus tracks that were not expected. What can one say about Groucho, Chico, Harpo and Zeppo that hasn't been said. I love the music tracks a LOT!

The dialogues from the films stand the test of time and are still hilarious and the music recordings have held up just as well.
