Set the standard for Rock and Roll mockumentaries. RIP Neil Innes (the masterful creative genius behind the music of The Rutles).
Some would say the connection between Neil Innes and the Rutles isn't obvious!
Remember the start of The Rutles - Rutland Weekend Television?
My first introduction to The Rutles was a mint original release LP of Let It Rot and Tragical History Tour. It was in a 150 LP collection I bought at a flea market one time back before the internet. I had no idea who they were and had no way to find out anything about them. I was shocked to see how popular they were when I finally was able to research them. Piggy In The Middle has backmasking in an obvious spot. He says, "This little piggy went to market." when you play it backwards. I was reading the US release of Tragical History Tour didn't have Piggy In The Middle on it so this must have been an import? I don't know. Lost them both along with about 600 other albums when my basement flooded one time.
