Peter Cook & Dudley Moore Cordially Invite You To Go To Hell!

One of the world's rarest comedy records (just 600 copies exist), this promo-only gem featured Pete & Dud improvising radio spots for the New York premiere of Bedazzled in December 1967. Proving once again that if you're selling a modern remake of the Faust story, you can't lose with pitches like "See the fantastic giant stinging alligator come out of the swamp and dance firily on the nude form of millions of women!"

(The album was not tracked; all track names are mine. Also please note that the LP front and back were identical, except that the back didn't list the number of the pressing.)
