Consumer Guide Reviews:

The Original Voice Tracks From Their Greatest Movies [Decca, 1969]
This is the sort of record you buy out of duty and then never play, not because it's a comedy record but because it isn't funny out of context. Salted with annoying music and little comments like "their target was the establishment" or "he socks it to the head of a university." For Marx Bros. freaks only. C+
