The Final Rip Off is a compilation double album by Monty Python, released in 1987. It was the team's first release on Virgin Records, after the label acquired the rights to their back catalogue previously released on Charisma. The set contains material from those six albums, but not from the Life of Brian or The Meaning of Life soundtracks, which were released on other labels. Michael Palin added some new linking material while all the songs were remixed by producer Andre Jacquemin including one, "Henry Kissinger", which featured a previously unreleased section. The stereo recordings from Live at Drury Lane were mixed into mono, as they would be again for that album's 2006 reissue. The cover art, with it's graphic image of spilling guts, was illustrated by Les Edwards.
