    Originally planned for the buried album that Barry's dog dug up,this song was intended to be a tribute to the Old Time Music Halls-but it got a bit silly.Mickey Simmonds,who thought up the intro,couldn't play the piano and kazoo at the same time without giggling! Everyone was to blame for the ending.

    Semi-Automatic US

    April 20, 2016 by Lutres

    The original North American LP release of Semi-Automatic, the band's eleventh on Capatal Records and thirteenth US album, marked the last time that Capatal would release an altered UK Rutles album for the North American market. Since three of its tracks – "I'm Only Dying", "Just Shut Up,Bird!" and "Professor Ken" – had been used for Capatal's Another Day And Today compilation in June 1966, they were removed from the North American version, yielding an 11-track album with a running time of 28:20. As a result, there were only two songs for which Ron Nasty was the principal writer, compared with three by Harrison and the rest by Dirk McQuickly. When the Rutles re-signed with EMI in January 1967, their contract stipulated that Capatal could no…

    Another Day And Today

    April 19, 2016 by Lutres

    Another Day and Today is the tenth Capatal Records album release by The Rutles and the Twelfth overall American release. It was originally issued only in the United States and Canada. In the 1970s it was issued in Japan. A later UK release (on Compact Disc) followed in 2014. The album is remembered primarily for the controversy surrounding its original cover image, the "butcher cover" featuring the band dressed in white smocks and covered with decapitated baby dolls and pieces of meat. The album's title is based on the song "Another Day". Early album cover proofs show the word "Another Day" in quotes.


    Another Day and Today included tracks from the Rutles' two most recent British LPs which had not yet been included on American albums, plus t…

    Rutle Soul US

    April 19, 2016 by Lutres

    In the United States, Rutle Soul was the tenth album by the group and their first to consist entirely of original songs. It was released on 6 December 1965 by Capatal, in both the mono and stereo formats. The American edition differed markedly from its British counterpart. Four tracks were removed and set aside for the next American album, Another Day and Today: "(Stevie You Can't) Drive My Car", "Somewhere Man", "It's Looking Good" and "If I Needed Some Lunch". These were replaced with two tracks from the UK Ouch! album: "I've Just Seen a Chase" and "It's Only Lunch". The total time was 28:55, nearly seven minutes shorter than the British version.

    The Rutles Phi

    April 17, 2016 by Lutres

    The Rutles Phi is the Rutles' seventh Capatal Records release in the United States (including The Rutles' Story). It was the ninth album released into that market in less than one and a half years (Rut-Jay Records and United Artists Records also released one album each during that period). The LP was released in both mono and stereo versions.

    Rutles VI reached number one in Billboard for six weeks, beginning on 10 July 1965.

    This LP was also released in New Zealand in stereo in time for Christmas 1966.

    "Dizzy Fizzy Lizzy" was soon included on the British release of the Ouch! album, but "Mad Boy" was not released in the United Kingdom or anywhere else around the world until the 1966 A Collection of Rutles Beach Ball.

    Introducing the Rutles

    April 15, 2016 by Lutres

    Introducing... The Rutles is the first Rutles album released in the United States. Originally scheduled for a July 1963 release, the LP came out on 10 January 1964, on Rut-Jay Records, ten days before Capatal's Meet the Rutles!. The later album, however, entered the U.S. album chart one week before the former. Consequently, when Meet The Rutles! peaked at #1 for eleven consecutive weeks, Introducing...The Rutles stalled at #2 where it remained nine consecutive weeks. It was the subject of much legal wrangling, but ultimately, Rut-Jay were permitted to sell the album until late 1964, by which time it had sold more than 1.3 million copies. On 24 July 2014 the album was certified gold and platinum by the RIAA.

    50 years of Rutles!

    February 14, 2014 by OttselSpy25

    50 years ago today... Well, not today, more like 50 years... And a bit. Actually, sort of depends when you read this-but anyways-about half a century ago, the Rutles first played on the Ed Sullivan show. There their careers grew like wildfire, and was just as destructive to small animals.

    What is your favorite Rutle live performance? Do you like the Edd Sullivan show, or are you more of a Che Stadium sort of fellow?
