Rick Wakeman And Neil Innes Revisit Rawlinson End

1972’s “Let’s Make Up And Be Friendly” was the last classic album by the original BONZO DOG BAND, and it was on this record that Vivian Stanshall, one of the greatest English eccentrics, introduced Sir Henry Rawlinson who could have been his alter ego. The gent didn’t vanish with the DOO-DAH ensemble, though; instead, “Rawlinson End” became a successful BBC series, an LP, a movie and then, finally, a stage show, the latter directed and pulled off by actor, singer and comedian Michael Livesley. Six years’ run of it proved to be a raving success, with the cast joined on more than one occasion by Sir’s co-creator Neil Innes and another possessor of a mighty sense of humor Rick Wakeman, both of them taking part in the show’s soundtrack – to be released on April 22nd.

The main music for it is delivered by BRAINWASHING HOUSE, the ensemble’s violinist being Viv’s fave fiddler: THE MEKONS’ Susie Honeyman. A good laugh! (Read the review.)
