The cast recording LP was issued by Decca Records in the Summer of 1961.

This compilation features eleven extracts from 'Pieces Of Eight', and seventeen from 'One Over The Eight'.

It was the success of these two revues, backed up by his appearances on BBC radio, that established Williams as a major comedy star.
