His first solo album is probably his funniest, containing two of the best rock & roll parodies ever made -- ''The Trumpet Volunteer'' (Cockney rock & roller decides to get more sophisticated by grafting a classical trumpet line onto typical pop dreck) and ''We Need the Money'' (a British duke sings a typical upbeat pop-rock ditty about living in the upper class). Also great is ''Suddenly It's Folk Song,'' a dead-on parody of British Isles folk (including a drunken pub singalong, and a session that dissolves into a barroom brawl). Spoken-word comic sketches aren't neglected, giving Sellers a chance to sport his astonishingly wide range of accents -- ''Party Political Speech,'' a typically stuffy and meaningless British harangue, is the best of these. Originally released as a British ten-inch, it's now readily available in its entirety on the Celebration of Sellers box.
