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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Not quite as funny as ''Hangin' With Rodney,'' this album still gets the job done of making you laugh. Rodney's vulgar performance is truly one that takes some getting used to, but it relates to most people (who may just be too proud to admit it).
Dear Rodny, You rock. We all love you up here. We listen to you at bon fires, BBQs, and I've even heard your cd played at our local bar. If you ever get a chance to come up to the Last Fronteer, visit us in Ketchikan, Alaska. Ask for Trent or Steven. Its a small town, we both work at the airport. Hope to hear from you soon.
i would recomment this cd and others by him. if you need a good laugh that's who you should listen to!
My in-laws and I have never laughed so hard while being together like the night my husband pulled this CD out for us to listen to. We were all laughing so hard we were crying. Going to his concert in 2 weeks!
