Tragical History Tour is an album by The Rutles that was released as a double EP in the United Kingdom and an LP in the United States. Produced by Archie Macaw, it includes the soundtrack to the 1967 film of the same name. Some songs of the US LP have alternate titles, because in the US they used to change UK songs names for fun.


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).
