Victory For The Comic Muse was first released in 2006. Recorded virtually live in the studio over a two-week period, ‘Victory…’ showcased Neil’s restless creativity and his flair for observation and narrative. Singles from the album include To Die A Virgin, Diva Lady and live favourite A Lady Of A Certain Age. The album has been remastered from the original tapes at the legendary Abbey Road Studios by mastering engineer Frank Arkwright (Blur, The Smiths.)

The CD release consists of 2 discs: the original remastered album, with a second CD of B-sides, demos and alternate versions lovingly curated by Neil Hannon, much of which has never been heard before. The CD comes with a booklet of photos, credits and extensive liner notes written by Neil covering the context and inspiration behind the album and its songs.
