Carry On represents the very essence
of British comedy. Since originating in 1958, Carry
brings to mind saucy humour, larger than life characters and
riotous slapstick situations. This collection collects the
best original music from each
film between 1958 and 1978, edited into a musical suite with
key amusing dialogue from each film...
Years of Carry On Films collects together some of the
music and classic British humour in a two disc CD collection.
This gets off on the right foot, with six and a half minutes
of music and dialogue from Carry On up the Khyber -
one of my personal favourite Carry On movies.
Screen have divided the movies into a number of themes, rather
than list them in chronological order. These include: (Military)
Services with a Smile; Doctor's and Nurses; Criminal Investigations;
Helping Hands; Holiday Camp; Hello, Ladies (Ding, Dong); and
History Through the Ages. This collection also includes an
interesting booklet which gives a little background information
on the films included here.
you'd expect the classic movies to be given more coverage,
that's not always the case. While Carry on Camping (9:21);
and Carry On Cleo (10:40) all get larger outings, there
are some very disappointing entries. I would have loved to
have heard more from: Carry On at Your Convenience
(5:55); Carry On up the Khyber (6:33); Carry On Loving
(6:10); Carry On up the Jungle (3:35); and Carry On Dick
I originally thought this collection was a good idea, on reflection
it seems a little bit pointless. If the music tracks had been
released on their own then I could understand Carry On
fanatics wanting to own this collection. And, while it was
great to hear Stanley Unwin's gobbledegook again in Carry
On Regardless, what we are left with are random moments
of some of the funnier dialogue.
end result has dialogue obscuring the majority of the films'
scores. This being the case, you are probably better off just
getting out your Carry On DVDs and videos and watching
