Overview

Nothing fancy about country comic Rodney Carrington. This East Texas native walks to the edge of propriety and then leaps over it -- big time. In keeping with the album title, Carrington pays a lot of attention to sex, the grosser the better (try to envision an aural equivalent of a Farrelly brothers movie). Comprised of bawdy songs and racy tales recorded on stage at clubs in Wichita and Tulsa, Morning Wood offers an impressive number of variations on the themes of sexual desire, sexual potency, and genital size. Carrington's approach is not for the squeamish, or the politically correct (the song "Gay Factory Worker" seems particularly likely to incite scathing responses). Six bonus music tracks close out the album, and Carrington actually has a pretty fair country baritone, but don't count on hearing him croon any love songs. Rather, get ready for, "Play Your Cards Wrong," a paean to his male member, or "T**tties & Beer," a self-explanatory call-and-response ode to two of the artist's favorite things. Occasionally a bit of common sense does surface, as when Carrington declares that he likes whiskey because "when I die I wanna look dead." That's about as enlightened as Morning Wood gets. Take it or leave it; Carrington's got more important things on his mind.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
On Rodney Carrington's Morning Wood, a couple of the country comic's songs are included twice, in both live and studio versions. It seems to be a requirement of country comedians that they also sing humorous country songs, and Carrington thankfully has a good voice, although his topics are the usual ones. This time around, Carrington's attitude prevails, as he spins out his jokes and relies heavily on audience interaction.
