    "Fantastic Historical Audio ... But"

    Excellent audio and wonderful to hear The Goons in their earliest surviving shows.
    Although a thoroughly informative pdf is included with the audio download version, I'm sorry to say there is no other accompanying information or track listing to identify what you are listening to. This oversight also befalls other Goon Show Compendium downloads.

    On the physical editions, we are treated to booklets detailing background and track listing. It is a shame that Audible cannot provide a PDF of these for the download version.
