The Rutland Weekend Songbook, sometimes referred to as Rutland Times, is a 1976 album by Eric Idle and Neil Innes featuring songs from the BBC comedy series Rutland Weekend Television. as funny as it ought to be. An effortless parody of the last decade or so of British television's most treasured conceits".

The Rutland Dirty Weekend Book by Eric Idle, 1976. A dense and lavishly illustrated parody of the Television, films and print media of the mid-1970s. The book is notable for the issue of "Rutland Stone" bound inside. The back page of this issue carries a full-page advertisement for The Rutles' latest album ("Finchley Road"), a single ("Ticket To Rut"), and an assortment of Rutles merchandise

This, roughly, is the situation Eric Idle found himself in at the end of Monty Python’s Flying Circus in 1974. Whereas the other members of the show worked in partners, Eric mostly wrote solo, leaving him the best set up to seamlessly continue his work after his fellow Pythons broke away. The result was Rutland Weekend Television on BBC2 which ran for 13 episodes on a very, very limited budget. The opening sketch of Rutland is an interview show featuring Idle as the show’s host who speaks only in gibberish, but with the intonation of someone who is conducting a very meaningful interview. Plugged rabbit emulsion, zinc custard without sustenance in Kipling-duff geriatric scenery, maximises press insulating government grunting sapphire-clubs incidentally, he says, introducing his guest. For me, the highlight of the show’s first episode is a Neil Innes song called Star of the Sexy Movies.

Eric Idle was invited to participate, but declined. Like the Anthology project that it lampooned, it featured tracks ostensibly from all periods of the Rutles' career, sequenced to reflect the fictional band's chronology. Several of the songs were actually older Innes songs that were dusted off and given the 'Rutles' treatment. The reunion was blessed by George Harrison, who encouraged The Pre-Fab Four to proceed. When approached, he told Innes, 'Sure. A 1985 Innes song from the stage show Neil Innes is Joe Public, rearranged in the style of "Tomorrow Never Knows" and "Rain", with Fataar singing lead. The Rutland Weekend Songbook (1976). The Rutles OST (1978). Rutles Highway Revisited (1993).

Originally created by Eric Idle and Neil Innes as a fictional band to be featured as part of various 1970s television programming, the group (remaining a parody of The Beatles) recorded, toured, and released two UK chart hits in reality. Initially created for a short sketch in Idle's UK television comedy series Rutland Weekend Television, The Rutles gained international fame after being the focus of the 1978 mockumentary television film, All You Need Is Cash (often referred to as just The Rutles). Rutles music for Rutland Weekend Television and the spin-off album The Rutland Weekend Songbook was recorded by Neil's Innes' own band Fatso, which consisted of: Neil Innes - piano, vocal.

The Passport records LP RUTLAND WEEKEND TELEVISION SONGBOOK was a creation of Eric Idle and Neil Innes, the two geniuses behind the music of Monty Python (Innes was the minstrel who sang, "Brave Robin ran away" in MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL). The TV show aired 13 episodes and a Boxing Day special on BBC2 during the 1975 and '76 seasons. That program and this "Songbook" introduced what would soon be a phenomenon- The Rutles! Their "pre-fab" single "I Must Be In Love" is here, as is album track "The Children of Rock & Roll

This originally fictional band, created by Eric Idle and Neil Innes for 1970s television programming, became an actual group – whilst remaining a parody of the Beatles – which toured and recorded, releasing many songs and albums that included two UK chart hits. Originally created as a short sketch in Idle's British television comedy series Rutland Weekend Television, the Rutles gained notice after being the focus of the mockumentary television film All You Need Is Cash (1978, aka The Rutles). The Ringo Starr character was originally named Barry, although in the series spin-off book The Rutland Weekend Songbook, this character is mistakenly identified as "Kevin"-the only appearance of this name in the entire Rutles canon  .

Rutland Weekend Television (RWT) was a television sketch show on BBC2, written by Eric Idle with music by Neil Innes. Two series were broadcast, the first consisting of six episodes in 1975, and the second series of seven episodes in 1976. A Christmas special was broadcast on Boxing Day 1975.It was Idle's first television project after Monty Python's Flying Circus, which ended the previous year. The show was the catalyst for The Rutles. Rutland Weekend Television or RWT centred on "Britain's smallest television network", situated in England's smallest (and mainly rural) county, Rutland.The show's title alludes to London Weekend Television (then part of ITV and since renamed ITV London). A Rutland TV station would be pretty small (representing roughly 30,000 people in an area less than 150 square miles), so a Rutland Weekend Television would have to be ridiculously tiny. The joke was doubly meaningful as Idle had accidentally been granted a presentation budget[1] instead of the more lavish budgets associated with light entertainment – so the weekly patter about their inability to buy props and sets reflected reality. Indeed, the last show of the first series featured Idle and Innes, stripped and shivering in blankets under a bare bulb, singing about how the power's about to be shut off. Idle speaks bitterly about these conditions now but his attempts to overcome them formed the basis of a lot of the show's jokes.Idle, in a 1975 Radio Times interview, remarked, "It was made on a shoestring budget, and someone else was wearing the shoe. The studio is the same size as the weather forecast studio and nearly as good. We had to bring the sets up four floors for each scene, then take them down again. While the next set was coming up, we'd change our make-up. Every minute mattered. It's not always funny to be funny from ten in the morning until ten at night. As for ad-libbing, what ad-libbing? You don't ad-lib when you're working with three cameras and anyway the material goes out months after you've made it.
