"Monty Python's Final Rip-Off" Review

This is a fairly decent compilation, but only with the six original British Charisma LPs in mind. That means, there is no material from "Monty Python's Flying Circus" (a 1970 album released on BBC Records and also on Pye Records); "Live at City Center" (a US only release from Arista Records in 1976) "The Life of Brian" (1979 soundtrack released on Warner Bros. Records); and "The Meaning of Life" (1983 soundtrack released on MCA Records). "Monty Python Sings" kind of makes up for these oversights, but a redone career-spanning compilation would be appreciated. Even the box set doesn't have all the material in one place (leaving out "City Center" and the BBC album). I would also include some material only available on the TV shows, and material from "And Now For Something Completely Different" (1971 feature); the two German shows (1972-1973); and material from "Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl" (1981 feature). I would like to be "ripped off" from Monty Python again!
