Monty Python's Life of Brian is the second soundtrack album released by Monty Python, in conjunction with the 1979 film Monty Python's Life of Brian. It mostly contains scenes from the movie with only brief linking sections performed by Eric Idle and Graham Chapman. The album opens with a brief rendition of "Hava Nagila" on Scottish bagpipes.

The album reached No.63 in the UK album chart.[2]

A 7" single (K17495) Double A-side of Brian/Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life was released in the UK on 16 November 1979 to promote the album.

In 2006 a special edition CD added six bonus tracks to the end of the album.
