Anna Russell (born Anna Claudia Russell-Brown; 27 December 1911 – 18 October 2006) was an English–Canadian singer and comedian. She gave many concerts in which she sang and played comic musical sketches on the piano. Among her best-known works are her concert performances and famous recordings of The Ring of the Nibelungs (An Analysis) – a humorous 22-minute synopsis of Richard Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen – and (on the same album) her parody How to Write Your Own Gilbert and Sullivan Opera.

Anna Russell is one of the latter, gifted with an amazing classically trained voice and a wicked sense of humor, which she uses to good effect on two albums, Anna Russell Sings? and Anna Russell Sings! Again?; those two albums were later compiled into this two-album set, The Anna Russell Album?.

Anna Russell - The Anna Russell Album, Disc EX, Case EX, Format: Music CD, Sony Records. Classical music CD release from Anna Russell with the album The Anna Russell Album. Released on the label Sony Records. Anna Russell was brilliant in cutting to the heart of lofty music. Although some of the references are a bit dated the essence of her humor transcended and continues to transcend to timelessness. This is the fourth time I have purchased this particular CD - I loan it to people and they steal it!

Hysterically funny comedy album for classical music (and particularly opera) fans. Even those who aren't into classical music will laugh at such wonderful sketches as "How to Write Your Own Gilbert and Sullivan Opera," "Introduction to the Concert by the Women's Club President," and the piece for which she was best-known, "The Ring of the Niebelungs (an Analysis)." This collection is actually a reissue of her first two LPs for Columbia Records, ANNA RUSSELL SINGS? (ML 4594) and ANNA RUSSELL SINGS! AGAIN? (ML 4733), both issued in 1953 and neither has dated one bit since first released. Due to the age of the material, these are mono recordings, but with a comedy album, does stereo really matter?. Put this on and prepare yourself for almost an hour and a half of chuckles, guffaws and belly laughs. Highly recommended for listeners on Zoloft and Prozac!NOTE: These recordings were originally made to lacquer discs as opposed to magnetic tape. All copies of "The Ring of the Niebelungs" appear to have a skip in it at 1:49 into the recording. This skip apparently occurred when the lacquer disc master was dubbed to tape and never corrected, as it is in every LP and CD copy ever issued.
