Swinging Classics from the Maestro of Mournful

I know, I know – this has got to stop. But I couldn't resist this one...

It's a poster for an album that was, alas, never made. In case you can't make out the small print, the quintet members are PL, Kingsley Amis, Johns Betjeman and Wain, and Barbara Pym. Track titles include 'Toad in My Lawnmower', 'Complan and Gin', 'Dewey Decimal Lady' and 'Can't Find the Gents'.
[Note for American readers: Complan is a powder that can be made into an ultra-bland nutritious drink for those unable to cope with food.]
