Track listing[edit]

Side One[edit]

  1. Introduction from Head of New Musical Express (0:55)
  2. Election Night Special Part 1(6:38)
  3. Hair Spray Ad (0:51)

Side Two[edit]

  1. Reviews (0:59)
  2. Election Night Special Part 2/The Lumberjack Song (5:03)

The Introduction is an exclusive piece, with the Head of NME sounding a very close relation to Mr Gumby. Election Night Special is taken from the same recording used on the Live At Drury Lane LP, but is a longer edit than on that release.

This was reissued on heavyweight vinyl as part of Monty Python's Total Rubbish.
