Oh! What A Carry On!
Album Oh What A Carry On cover.jpg
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] and released on the budget Music For Pleasure label (MFP 1416). Many were novelty songs with most, such as those by Jim Dale, having 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,[3] with many additional tracks by actors associated with the Carry On... series.
