Satirical song is an almost extinct genre nowadays but back in the 1950s Tom Lehrer was the master of irreverent political and social humour with his sardonic wit and brilliantly observed lyrics.

This 2 CD set pulls together four complete LPs, both studio and live recordings of his core repertoire, much of which, though topical at the time, is still as relevant and entertaining today.
