George Carlin CD s
The Early Suit and Tie Years:
Back in the very early days when Carlin partnered with Jack Burns. Only 25 minutes long. Very early sixties style stand-up comedy but a bit of a Lenny Bruce influence audible on a couple of tracks. This Carlin CD is for hard core fans only. Fairly easily found in bargain bins until his death.
Very early Carlin from back when he was wearing a suit. The original Wonderful Wino and bits on TV commercials, Newscast, Day Time Television, and Indian Sergeant. For fans, really as this CD has none of the wit and verbal magic.
With Class Clown one of two George Carlin CD classics. Still early and not quite edgy material.
Class Clown is George Carlin's most autobiographical CD and one of two classics. Features many stories about Carlin growing up in White Harlem. Includes the original Seven Words You Cannot Say On Television.
Released after Class Clown. The other very biographical CD. Includes White Harlem, New York Voices, Black Consciousness, and Cute Little Farts.
Two CD set compilation of FM & Am, Class Clown, and Occupation Foole Basically all of the great and early Carlin comedy
Aside from Some Werds this is a minor release.
Features the classic Baseball - Football. Also Y'Ever. The rest is ordinary stuff.
The best of the late seventies George Carlin CD s. Includes Death and Dying, Kids Are Too Small, Rules Rules Rules, Parent's Cliches and Children's Secret Answers, and Words We Leave Behind.
A very very minor George Carlin CD. For hardcore fans only. Includes lame studio bits like Announcements. If you can, download only A Place For My Stuff, Asshole Jackoff Scumbag, and perhaps Have A Nice Day
First Carlin record on his own label and finally (11/08) on CD.Not to be confused with the later HBO special --which I did for a while.
Includes Hello - Goodbye, Losing Things, and You're Lost. Not bad.
Keeping People Alert and More Stuff on Cars and Driving. An ordinary Carlin release.
An uneven Carlin CD. I still do not think Rape Can Be Funny works but Organ Donor Program, Don't Pull The Plug On Me, and especially Euphemisms make this one worthwhile.
Post Gulf War release. Minor stuff even includes airline jokes
A very caustic Carlin with his solution for Capital Punishment and State Prison Farms. The routine on Familiar Expressions shows the comedian's love of language. Not a bad, not a great CD
A minor Carlin CD. Only interesting are American Bullshit and There Is No God. For hardcore fans only.
Probably the worst Carlin CD ever. 22 tracks of misses where the stand-up comes across as an angry old fart. Cynical but not funny is not a good combination.
Carlin is back and in very fine form on this release. His take on human behavior is once again witty, intelligent, and funny.
The last George Carlin CD and it is excellent. Read the review
Carlin's first HBO special.
Basically the DVD version of On The Road. A good choice for dirty words and the seven dirty words amended in a version not available on CD. Also includes Fucking vs. Killing.
Comedian Scoreboard, Have a Nice Day, Food, Headlines, Dogs and Cats, Hitler. This is the one that ends with Carlin unrolling a long list of More Dirty Words. Not bad, not great.
May or may not be a true title. Includes Seven Dirty Words, Stuff, Al Sleet, Dog Incident, Fussy Eater, Losing Things, Driving.
A Place For My Stuff, Baseball - Football, Kids' Rules, New Sports Rules, Earrings, Founding of America "by slave owners who wanted to be free"
The penultimate George Carlin HBO concert.Also one of his very best as the crochety old man is gone and the real humor and wit is back.
