Marty Feldman

This record is called "The Crazy World of Marty Feldman" and came out in 1969. I don't think it's ever been issued on CD. Tell me if I'm wrong. It certainly should be as its a great album and full of very funny songs like the eight samples here. Written not by Marty but by Dennis King, John Junkin and Bill Solly who all later went on to write songs for the Two Ronnies and Morecambe and Wise etc.Marty is mainly remembered for his work with Mel Brookes and such films as Young Frankenstein, Sherlock Holmes Younger Brother and the ill-fated Yellowbeard but it was in radio he got his start writing for such shows as Round The Horne. Later he worked in television with the Frost Report and At Last the 1948 Show etc. He also wrote for the Army Game and Bootsie and Snudge.He had his own TV series in the late 60's early 70's and another record was issued using the soundtrack to some of these sketches.Although a vegetarian, he was a heavy smoker and died of a massive heart attack at the age of 49 in Mexico whilst filming Yellowbeard.

Thank you so much. This is brilliant, I've been trying to get hold of some Marty Feldman stuff for years. I love his songs, the one I've really been hunting for is called 'The Great Bell', it's fantastic. I'd also love to get hold of the later Rambling Sid Rumpo songs that he wrote for Kenneth Williams on the radio show Round The Horn. Don't suppose you know where I can get any of them?

Thanks for these anyway, great blog, keep up the great work :-)

I love Marty Feldman!

Oh, by the way, this has been released on CD...this summer it was for the first time. It's not under this title though, it's under the orignial, "I Feel A Song Going Off" title - same songs though. They also added two extra tracks..."A Joyous Time of the Year" and "The B Side". I love this album...the songs are so damn fun and Feldman rocks.
