George Carlin‘s rare recording released by his family, it has brought a lot of joy to his supporters, and they are thrilled. On March 27, George Carlin’s family relaunched his website and used the opportunity to release some rare or never heard recording from the comedian.

The comedian and social critic, who began his career in 1959, released over 30 albums, did dozens of HBO specials, appeared in several movies and TV shows, and he passed away in 2008 at the age of 71.

The estate picked March 27 to relaunch the site because it coincided with the hanging of a Carlin portrait in the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC.

The actor, and author’s daughter, Kelly Carlin, who is also a comedian and his longtime manager, Jerry Hamza, have decided to release the recording of the “Seven Dirty Words,” originally known as the “Filthy Words” routine.

During the “Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television” routine, George Carlin explained:

“Sh*t, p*ss, f*ck, c*nt, c*cksucker, motherf*cker, and t*ts. Those are the heavy seven. Those are the ones that’ll infect your soul, curve your spine and keep the country from winning the war.”

In 1972, George Carlin was arrested while performing the controversial routine at the Milwaukee Summerfest concert. He was charged with violating obscenity laws, but the judge ruled in Carlin’s favor saying that while his routine was indeed filthy, he was free to say whatever he wanted.

One year later, a father filed a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission after he listened to George Carlin’s routine with his son on Pacifica Foundation radio station. The radio station was fined by the FCC, and the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the decision.

Kelly Carlin, who is set to publish “A Carlin Home Companion,” had the following to say about the project:

“I have a box of audiocassettes that my dad had kept over the years, starting with shows in the 1960s, ones that were important him, kind of seminal moments in his career. And we’ve been listening to them and archiving them.”

George Carlin’s rare recording released and a whole new generation will have the chance of appreciating the work of one of the great masters of the genre.

    The Constitutional freedoms (what’s left of them) are in place to make you safe. It’s the opposite. Every time you invoke your rights you are facing off with those who would suppress and aim to do away with them. Mr.Carlin was , to me, the bravest man I have seen in squaring off with societies Hippocratic political correctness.
