'''Another Monty Python Record''' is a 1971 album by Creator/MontyPython, the second in their catalogue and the first to actually have new material, even though most of it are still sketches people familiar with ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' would know, like "Spanish Inquisition", "World Forum", "The Architect", "Norman St. John Polevaulter (Contradicting People)", "The Piranha Brothers", "Death Of Mary, Queen Of Scots", "Lifeboat", "Penguin On The TV", "Spam", "The Judges" and "Undertaker".

The British version and American, international version differed from each other. On the USA version the tracks "Norman St. John Polevaulter (Contradicting People)" and "Old Ladies Thrown Into The Fjord" were left off the album and replaced by "World Forum/Communist Phonecall".

!! ''Another series of tropes''
* AbsenteeActor: Creator/TerryGilliam doesn't appear on this album, as most of Monty Python's records.
* AlbumFiller: InUniverse John Cleese apologizes at the start of the album for unneccesary putting an excerpt of "Norwegian Carpenters Songs" on the record.
* AmbiguouslyGay: "Judges" features two judges being revealed to be people who speak with a GayLisp.
* AsianSpeekeeEngrish: UsefulNotes/{{Mao}} speaks in this voice when he says "Sing Little Birdie" in the "World Forum" sketch.
* BrickJoke and RunningGag: The album cover looks like a classical music album, but is crossed out and the title "Another Monty Python Record" written on it. The back cover also appears to be a serious text about Beethoven, but when one reads it carefully it turns into a commentary about Beethoven joining the tennis contest of Wimbledon. When one first listens to the record the joke is continued with Creator/MichaelPalin explaining the album has nothing to do with ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus''. However, instead of pretending this is a Beethoven record he says it is called "Pleasures Of The Dance": a collection of Norwegian carpenters' songs." After a small snippet Creator/JohnCleese reappears, apologizes and confirms it is indeed a Python album, followed by a forced laugh and still more Norwegian folk music. Halfway the Spanish Inquisition sketch Cleese comes in again to apologize for the small snippet of Norwegian folk music that appeared on the album. After the "World Forum" sketch an angry calls to complain about the fact that a collection of "Norwegian Folk Songs should have Communist propaganda on it." At the end of the album the folk song gag is repeated by announcing the existence of a "Folk Songs of the Spanish Inquisition" album, which cuts to the inquisiteurs singing "Knees Up Mother Brown".
* BrokenRecord: Mafiosi Luigi Vercotti scratches the record because of the Piranha Brothers sketch, resulting in one line being repeated until the end of Side One.
--> ''Sorry squire, I just scratched your record''
* CelebrityCameo: InUniverse Former UK Prime Minister UsefulNotes/StanleyBaldwin supposedly wrote the foreword to the liner notes, even though the real Baldwin died in 1947.
* ClassicalMusic: "Royal Festival Hall Concert" has a riot break out during a concert.
* CoversAlwaysLie: InUniverse: The album is presented as a Beethoven record, while actually being by Monty Python, while on the record itself people act as if it is a collection of "Norwegian Carpenter's Songs".
* DesignStudentsOrgasm: Both averted as well as subverted. The cover is a parody of a ClassicalMusic album cover, but with everything crossed out and the title hastily written beside it. It was designed by Creator/TerryGilliam.
* DreadfulMusician: In "Royal Festival Hall Concert" the violinist breaks his violin three times, causing a riot to break out.
* ImAHumanitarian: "Lifeboat", where starving sailors in a lifeboat decide to eat one another, and "Undertaker", where Cleese is persuaded to eat his mother's corpse.
* MotorMouth: John Cleese's rambling in the "Theatre Critic".
* NotQuiteDead: UsefulNotes/MaryQueenOfScots is being beaten up in a radio play. Her attackers assume she is dead, but she answers: "No, I am not", whereupon they beat her up again.
* RecordNeedleScratch: The Piranha Brothers interrupt the sketch and scratch the recording, causing a continuous loop in the album's groove.
* SelfTitledAlbum: The group is mentioned in the title.
* ShoutOut:
** The album cover provides a shout-out to Music/LudwigVanBeethoven's "Second Symphony". The painting is Creator/PieterBruegelTheElder's "The Census At Bethlehem".
** The Gumbies perform ''Theatre/TheCherryOrchard'' by Creator/AntonChekhov.
** "World Forum/Communist Phonecall" has Creator/KarlMarx, UsefulNotes/VladimirLenin, UsefulNotes/CheGuevara and UsefulNotes/{{Mao}} being quizzed.
** "Sound Quiz" asks listeners via a series of sound effects: "What famous person is this getting up in the morning?" [[spoiler:The answer is Italian film director Creator/LuchinoVisconti]].
** "You Be The Actor" gives the listener the chance to be "the next Creator/LaurenceOlivier, Creator/AlecGuinness and Laurence Harvey". Laurence Harvey was an actor best known for his role in ''Film/RoomAtTheTop.''
** "Royal Festival Hall Concert" has Emile Gilbert perform Music/PyotrIlyichTchaikovsky's "Canzonetta" from his Violin Concerto, but when he breaks it up to three times a riot breaks out, where conductor Otto Klemperer beats him with a stick. Near the end cellist Pablo Casals plays Music/AntonioVivaldi's "Sonatino In E sharp" while jumping into a bucket of boiling fat from 400 foot high.
** "Stake Your Claim" has a man claim he wrote all of Creator/WilliamShakespeare's works, only to be debunked within 10 seconds.
* StockSoundEffects: The album starts off with sounds of birds whistling in nature.
* StandardSnippet: "Liberty Bell" by John Philip Sousa, the theme song of ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' can be heard, also the "Canzonetta" from Music/PyotrIlyichTchaikovsky's "Violin Concerto" and the music hall song "Knees Up Mother Brown". When the Comfy Chair is announced a snippet from "Mars" by Music/GustavHolst's "The Planets" is heard.
* StuffBlowingUp: The penguin on the TV set explodes.
* TimeMarchesOn: In "World Forum/Communist Phonecall" the presenter says that the question "When did Coventry City F.C. win the FA Cup?" was a trick question, because this soccer club has never won this prize. In 1987 Coventry did win this championship, thus ruining the joke.
* TrrrillingRrrs: Eric Idle announces theatre critic Gavin Millar, by rolling the final "r" in his name.
