Oh! What A Carry On!
Compilation album by various artists from the Carry On... film series.
Released June 1971
Label Music For Pleasure

Oh! What A Carry On! was a 1971 compilation album of songs performed by actors from the Carry On... film series.[1] Many were novelty songs with some, such as those by Jim Dale, had previously been released as singles. None were recorded specifically for this album or had any direct relationship to the Carry On films. For example Kenneth Williams' songs as Rambling Syd Rumpo, which Gramophone magazine described as the best on the album,[2] were taken from Round the Horne and Jim Dale's songs had been hits in the 1950s.

It was reissued by EMI Records in 2004 as a 2 CD set with many additional tracks by actors associated with the Carry On... series.
