Tragical History Tour is the name of an US album by The Rutles, released as an LP in the US on 27 November 1967, but as a double EP in the UK on 8 December that year (the US album was not released in the UK until 1976). Some songs of this album have alternate titles, because in the US they used to change UK songs names for fun. The album is a soundtrack to the film of the same name .


The album, along with the film, was the first thing to be made after Leggy Mountbatten's movement to Australia, and the film and the album are infamous for their poor quality (but the album is still better than the film).
