Renowned as one of the most brilliant comedians of his generation, British actor Peter Sellers was also a surprisingly prolific recording artist in the 1950s and '60s. This lovingly compiled four-disc box set features many of Sellers's funniest moments in front of the microphone, whether performing duets with Sophia Loren (the wacky "Goodness Gracious Me!") or sending up pop hits, most notably on a delightfully shrill version of "Unchained Melody" and a series of hilarious Beatles covers (including a spoken-word Cockney rendition of "She Loves You"). For diehard fans of Sellers, this outstanding compilation is essential.
