  • THE RUTLES are a Beatles parody group created by Eric Idle and Neil Innes for their British TV show "Rutland Weekend." The music comes from a TV movie called "All You Need Is Cash" (co-produced by Saturday Night Live's Lorne Michaels), which follows the rise and fall of The Rutles.
  • Contains 6 bonus tracks; 4 from the TV special "All You Need Is Cash" and 2 outakes. The CD booklet illustrates the Rutles story with photos and liner notes.
  • Personnel: Ricky Fataar (vocals, guitar, sitar, tabla); Neil Innes, Ollie Halsall (vocals, guitar, keyboards); John Halsey (vocals, percussion); John Altman (brass).
  • Audio Mixers: Larry Walsh; Bill Inglot.
  • Recording information: Chappell Studios, London.
  • Photographers: David Gahr; David Strickland.
  • In an alternate universe, the Rutles--Dirk, Nasty, Stig, and Barry, the Prefab Four--ruled the 1960s, creating the music that "would last a lunchtime." That universe where a certain Beatles were nowhere to be found was created in the late-'70s by Monty Python member Eric Idle and its resident musician Neil Innes for the 1978 (George Harrison approved) motion picture ALL YOU NEED IS CASH. The accompanying soundtrack, simply titled THE RUTLES, wisely avoids the silliness of the movie for reverent, pitch-perfect parodies of every moment of the Beatles' career (i.e. "Get Back" becomes "Get Up & Go"). The result is an album both subtly hilarious and sonically appealing, perfect for fans of both Monty Python, the Beatles, or both.
