MARTY - Excerpts from the BBC-TV Series
MARTY - Excerpts from the BBC-TV Series, was a vinyl LP released by Pye records in 1968 to tie in with the one and only series of Marty Feldman's "MARTY" produced by the BBC.
The series featured contributions from many comedy writers (Palin, Jones, Chapman, Cleese, and Barry Took were regular contributors) as well as Feldman's own unique writing.
Much of the original MARTY television series has been lost to time, with only two broadcast episodes surviving. These audio recordings are all that remain in many cases all that remain of some of the comedian's best sketch material.
This has been transferred from an immaculate First Pressing Mono (Pye NPL18258) recording.
The original sleeve art is also included in a reshaped form to better suit CD packaging. This recording was released only once commercially, and has been discontinued since 1968.

ABOUT MARTY FELDMAN
Having contributed scripts to Educating Archie, he teamed with Barry Took and together they wrote for various radio (Round The Horne) and television (The Army Game) productions.
Working on The Frost Report led to his small screen break in At Last The 1948 Show (co-writing and appearing in, among others, the now famous Four Yorkshiremen sketch).
His bullish and zany comedy style (not to mention his beguiling, bulbous eyes: the result of a thyroid problem) earned him popular success and his own shows for both the BBC and ITV, before he crossed the Atlantic to become a regular on American TV.
He had cinema success too, notably as Igor in Young Frankenstein, but his early death in 1982 whilst filming Yellowbeard robbed him of a fitting epitaph.
