George Carlin Project Part 5 - the 80's

A Place For My Stuff   DOWNLOAD
This was George's first album after taking a post-heart attack break of 2 years. And it is unique amongst all his stuff, because part of it is skits recorded in a studio. The album is anchored by two long routines ("Stuff" and "Fussy Eater"), but interspersed throughout are fake ads, announcements, and some interview skits. This whole thing is hilarious! The Jesus Interview, and oh man, "The Book Club"!
Carlin on Campus   DOWNLOAD
He had an HBO special with this name, but the album is about half different from that material. "Cars and Driving", the "Leftfielders" bits, and the "Incomplete List of Impolite Words"...this is a funny one.
Playin' With Your Head   DOWNLOAD
This was his last album where he indulged in the softer, observational humor. This is just classic - "Hello Goodbye", "Love and Regards", "Losing Things". I still laugh at this one. Sorry, the tracks aren't titled, but that can be an easy fix.
What Am I Doing In New Jersey?   DOWNLOAD
This is where George became topical. Opening with both barrels against the Reagan administration and the hypocritical 80's, and he doesn't let up. Also includes the great "More Things About Cars and Driving". This is a turning point in his career.
Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics   DOWNLOAD
When I was a kid, this was the first non-70's album of his that I'd heard, and it was like a slap to the face. It's weird - he lived another 20 years, but he never sounded older than he does here.
80's Bootleg Video   DOWNLOAD

Some good stuff in this one.

1. The opening monologue of the Tonight Show that George hosted in '83.
2. An appearance on Arsenio from '89. He talks a lot about old R&B and even goes to the piano to sing a little!
3. "Cars and Driving" from the Carlin on Campus special. Some of the best physical comedy he ever did.
4. Several good parts from "Carlin at Carnegie", including the cartoon interstitial.

I think that's all that's on it. Enjoy!
