Blackadder’s Historical Record 40th Anniversary vinyl boxset

Rescued from a dusty shelf in a long-forgotten archive, ‘Blackadder’s Historical Record’ brings the bawdy, brutal and blithering bits of history to life via 24 full-cast TV soundtrack episodes.

Housed in an elegant lift-off lid box, all 24 full cast TV soundtrack episodes are lovingly spread over 12 opulent, gold-colour 140g vinyl discs; each housed inside splendid era-inspired inner sleeves. This magnificent boxset includes a 12” frameable print portrait of Baldrick (each copy individually signed by Tony Robinson), and a colour illustrated booklet detailing cast, transmission and production credits (with sleeve notes from Tony Robinson).

From ‘The Black Adder’ and ‘Blackadder II’ to ‘Blackadder the Third’ and ‘Blackadder Goes Forth’, this is one of British TV’s best-loved sitcoms, which propelled its stars and writers on to become household names.

Written by Richard Curtis and Rowan Atkinson (Series 1) and Richard Curtis and Ben Elton (Series 2-4) the episodes star Atkinson as the eponymous anti-hero, with Tony Robinson as his hapless manservant Baldrick. A star-studded supporting cast includes Tim McInnerny, Miranda Richardson, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, with guest appearances by Rik Mayall, Miriam Margolyes, Brian Blessed, Tom Baker and many, many more. (Cunning plan not included.)

Limited to just 1,500 copies worldwide, the boxset will be released on February 10th 2023, but you can pre-order your copy here:
