Holy shit! I'd heard Carlin reference a stand-up set he shelved after 9-11 in numerous interviews, but I always assumed it was a couple of bits, not a full fledged recorded show!

I'm dying to listen to this. His actual 2001 album/special Complaints and Grievances is the weakest of his latter work, and something about it always struck me as wonky. It's remarkably aimless and fluffy. After 9-11 everything felt so chaotic, so it was shocking to hear Carlin so toothless.

I wonder if any of that material will be in this "lost" album. If not, then C&G is lot more interesting for being a bunch of B material he threw together at the last minute.
