Monty Python's Contractual Obligation Album is the final studio album by Monty Python, released in 1980. Besides newly written songs and sketches, the sessions saw re-recordings of material that dated back to the 1960s pre-Python shows I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again, The Frost Report, At Last The 1948 Show and How To Irritate People.
This is it-the one Monty Python album that you must have. A compilation drawn from various films, TV series, and performance sketches, The Final Rip Off consists of two CDs of absolute classics. One of the very first tracks is the famous "Constitutional Peasant" scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Also included are "Spanish Inquisition," "Argument," "Lumberjack Song," and several other sketches that have achieved much-deserved pride of place in popular culture. The Final Rip-Off was a labor of love on the part of the Pythons: released in the late '80s, this collection was not only a fun sampling of some of their best comedy skits, it was also very lovingly remastered. Some of the original versions of these skits didn't have the musical flourish that they have here.
The Ultimate Monty Python Rip Off is a compilation album released by Monty Python in 1994 on the occasion of their 25th anniversary. The album contains no previously unreleased material and was released as a sampler for the simultaneous release of The Instant Monty Python CD Collection box set.
Hence ‘Monty Python’s Contractual Obligation Album’ was just that, as Michael Palin testifies: yes, we had to do it. There was no real problem with Charisma. Stratt had been brilliant for us, but we were quite forcefully told that we had a commitment to record one last album with them. None of us really wanted to do it, if I were to be completely honest. I felt like it was stepping back a bit. We were thinking about another film so the group were still together but we would never had thought about doing another album. Anyway, we sat around discussing it and trying to think of a title. I’m so Worried (Demo Version). More music from Monty Python. Monty Python: The Final Rip Off (1987).
