New George Carlin Album Includes Controversial Material Recorded The Day Before 9/11

This looks fascinating. Carlin has always been a long-time hero and favorite of mine.

From Rolling Stone:

“A never-before-released George Carlin bit, recorded the day before 9/11, found the observational comic casually joking about mass fatalities. The comedian decided to shelve the controversial material after the tragedy and held onto it until his death in 2008. Now a new Carlin LP, I Kinda Like It When a Lotta People Die, will feature the dark routine for the first time when it comes out digitally and on CD and LP on September 16th.”

If I had a dollar for every time I mutter “Carlin would have a field day with this craziness…” during an election, I’d be a rich man…
