In instance you missed it, there's a new George Carlin "album" out. Basically, the backstory is this: back in 2001, Carlin was functioning on an album dubbed I Kinda Like It When A Lotta People Die.
You are watching: I kind of like it when a lot of people die
The material on this album was recorded on Sept. 10th, 2001. He even renders a joke about an plane acquiring blvery own up and Osama bin Laden acquiring blamed for it.
The following day, of course 9/11 taken place and the civilization readjusted.
So the album Carlin was working on got readjusted. The album title was adjusted (to Complaints & Grievances) and also some of the material obtained put aside (the plane bit, the big ending little about a global disaster, and so on.).
Well currently, 15 years later on, they lastly put out that unreleased product. The album is brief (only 10 tracks and just 6 of them are from the Sept. 10, 2001 show) however it's excellent stuff. George Carlin is my favorite comedian of all-time and legitimately my personal hero, so.....figured I'd review it, for anyone who can treatment or want to buy it.
1. Boston Rant 1957 - this is actually an individual recording Carlin made at home back in 1957. He sounds way younger, obviously. But it's basically George sitting in his living room, talking into a microphone for over 5 minutes about police and firefighters (greatly police). I'm pretty sure it's contained because, also though it was tape-recorded 60 years earlier, it feels super timely today provided the controversy over police in America. But if you recognize Carlin, he was not a fan of the cops and also he renders it pretty clear below.
2. Rats & Squealers - now we're right into the Sept. 10th present. This is an additional piece about cops and also mostly around people who talk to them. TL;DR - George doesn't prefer cops, the government, or snitches. Hilarious stuff below and ideal I have the right to tell, all new. It's the first time I've heard it everywhere.
3. Cocaine - just a 30 second track, a quick little bit joke around cocaine. Nopoint of note.
4. The Fecal Differential - this is the track that he provides jokes around bin Laden blowing up an plane. The day prior to 9/11. Talk about timely. Anymethod, a lot of of this is brand-new, never-heard material, yet the fart jokes from Complaints & Grievances are in here in their original develop. But the rest of it is all new.
5. Tired of Songs - this is the initially time this little has been released however I actually observed Carlin live in 2005 and also he did this bit tright here so I kbrand-new it sounded acquainted as soon as I initially heard it. But it never before made any kind of albums, as far as I recognize.
6. The First Enema - funny bit about the first enema. How somebody must have actually been the first perchild to think of the concept of doing an enema and just how it played out. Funny stuff, entirely brand also brand-new.
7. Uncle Dave - so this bit is kinda well known. Carlin simply describes this ever-worsening disaster wright here millions of world die in horrible ways. It was initially intended to be released in 2001 however this was one of the significant pieces of material that got shelved after 9/11. So then it was going to come out aobtain in 2005 yet Hurricane Katrina occurred, so it acquired shelved aacquire. Finally, he put it out in 2006. It's the last track on Life Is Worth Losing (on tbelow, it's dubbed "Coast-To-Coast Emergency"). But this is the original variation, videotaped Sept. 10, 2001 and I like this version much better I think. But it's greatly the very same material as the 2006 bit.
8. Jerry Hamza Interview - quick interwatch via Carlin's previous manager and also finest friend, that talks around how this product was meant to come out in 2001 and also exactly how 9/11 changed that.
9. Rocco Urbisci Interview - another Carlin friend and producer, talking around Carlin's process of exactly how he worked.

All in all, if you're a Carlin fanatic favor myself, this is a cool little album. If you're a completist and desire to have all of his product, this one has a few excellent, unreleased gems on it. But don't go right into it expecting an hour of new product or anypoint. This one's for the hardcore fans.
