"The Album of the Soundtrack of the Trailer of the Film of Monty Python and the Holy Grail" is an album released by Monty Python in 1975. It is a recording of some bits from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" as well as some new material. A CD version was released in 1997.

It is billed as the "Executive Version" as a joke on popular "special editions" of albums that contained extra tracks unavailable on earlier versions. Naturally, no other version of this album existed in the original release. However, as an ironic twist in 2006 the Special Edition of the Executive Version of the Album of the Soundtrack of the Trailer of the Film of Monty Python and the Holy Grail was released, containing three extra tracks.

The CD version has a bonus track not on the LP or cassette. Also, the sketch "A Foul-Tempered Rabbit", edited on the LP and 8-track, was included in its entirety on the cassette and CD.

The Album of the Soundtrack of the Trailer of the Film of Monty Python and the Holy Grail was also included in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail: The Extraordinarily Deluxe DVD Edition." The bonus features disc had instructions on how to play the record.
