Monty Python's Previous Record was the third album by Monty Python, released in 1972. When packaged in 1994's The Instant Monty Python CD Collection the order of some of the sketches was changed. It was later re-released on CD in 1997, and eventually released as a 2006 special edition, containing eleven extra tracks, and the original album's sequence was the same as issued in the 1994 box set.

The album contains sketches from the third series of Flying Circus as well as new material. The Tale of Happy Valley is actually an edited version of A Fairy Tale from the second German show.

The original vinyl release included a separate 45rpm flexi-disc entitled 'Teach Yourself Heath', whose sleeve was a picture of a smiling Edward Heath (then Prime Minister).
