Neils Heavy Concept Album Neil CD

 

Comedian Nigel Planer's Neil, the long-suffering Hippy character from the hit BBC series The Young Ones, enjoyed huge success with his 'heavy' album from 1984. 
 
Featuring covers of songs such as Hole In My Shoe, My White Bicycle, The Gnome, Hurdy Gurdy Man, and Golf Girl, the album included contributions from the likes of Dave Stewart (who also produced the album), Barbara Gaskin, Gavin Harrison, Pip Pyle, Jakko Jakszyk and Jimmy Hastings. Comedians Stephen Fry, Roland Rivron and Dawn French also made appearances.
 
Unavailable for many years, Neil's Heavy Concept Album is an affectionate parody of psychedelic and progressive rock culture.
