Peter Cook & Dudley Moore: Magnolia Opus 1
And so beget this 1977 record, with an unmodulated groove on the B-side and Cook and Moore extolling Magnolia on the A. The session was carefully engineered to the point where you almost can't hear trucks going by, and there almost isn't 50hz and 150hz hum from the AC, and you almost can't hear a plane go over at one point. So anyway, it's a promotional record. It's a thing. But why. Why why why. Also, Dudley Moore performs his always-brilliant Bogey-meets-Beethoven mashup "And the Same to You".
