FM & AM | [George Carlin]

FM & AM

FM & AM found Carlin officially poking fun at, while incorporating, his early material, performed in the lounges of America and on The Ed Sullivan Show. It also marked Carlin's metamorphosis from straight-laced to hippie, as he intentionally embraced the growing counterculture. The recording is divided into two separate manifestations of humor, making it a sort of comedy concept album.

Audible Editor Reviews

George Carlin’s FM and AM marked an early career turn towards the material and persona which would later come to define his enduring legacy. This is especially apparent because the album captures two distinct sides of the man, one of which would wane as the years went on: first, and soon to disappear, his inoffensive and family-friendly comedic personality, and second, the boisterous, contentious, and often vulgar personality which would define the bulk of his comedy oeuvre. The material on this album is strong, but more attractive even is the opportunity to experience Carlin’s dazzling and wholly unselfconscious stage presence in its infancy: the birth of a performer soon to enter his element.

Publisher's Summary

FM & AM found Carlin officially poking fun at, while incorporating, his early material, performed in the lounges of America and on The Ed Sullivan Show. It also marked Carlin's metamorphosis from straight-laced to hippie, as he intentionally embraced the growing counterculture.

The recording is divided into two separate manifestations of humor, making it a sort of comedy concept album. One section focuses on references geared toward the more wholesome, commercial oriented AM-radio audience; the remaining material was intended for the "hipper" FM audience.

    "Some of his best"

    This is some of George Carlin's best work. Funny and timeless, its views on society are still true to this day. From tips on how to best imitate Ed Sullivan to a hilarious weather report from his character "Al Sleet: The Hippy-Dippy Weatherman" Carlin delivers some of the finest comedy in this sterling performance.
