As Seen On TV: Limited Edition Green + Brown Colour Vinyl 2LP

£34.99

Release date: 4 May, 2023

Sketches and songs from the much loved BBC TV series, written by and starring Victoria Wood presented on Green and Brown for the first time.

“Not bleakly not meekly beat me on the bottom with a Woman’s Weekly…”

It’s got to be one of the most celebrated comedy songs in recent history. The Ballad of Barry and Freda (AKA Let’s Do It) originated in Victoria Wood’s groundbreaking television series As Seen On TV. It’s just one of the many treasures on this double vinyl LP release, which also boasts a plethora of Victoria’s best remembered comedy sketches.

Written by and starring Victoria herself, the sketches also feature Julie Walters in an array of comedic guises, perhaps most memorably as Mrs Overall in the soap opera spoof Acorn Antiques. With Celia Imrie as Miss Babs, Duncan Preston as Mr Clifford, Susie Blake as a perpetually snooty continuity announcer, Patricia Routledge as agony aunt Kitty, and a riotous supporting cast, the scene is set for an affectionately biting send up of 1980s TV.

Two 140g vinyl LPs (one green and one brown) are presented in a wittily illustrated gatefold sleeve, featuring images from the TV series. Cast and credits are accompanied by an exclusive sleeve note by Jasper Rees, author of the bestselling Let’s Do It: The Authorised Biography of Victoria Wood and Victoria Wood Unseen on TV. Two full colour inner sleeves supply a complete track listing.
