Carnival of Excess: Limited Edition is a limited edition reissue of the album Carnival of Excess, recorded by notorious punk rock musician GG Allin with one-time studio group The Criminal Quartet. This release, which contains previously unreleased mixes of the songs from the original album (with one exception, "Outskirts of Life", which used the mix from the original 1996 release), was issued in limited editions of 100 white vinyl albums and 1200 compact discs. Added to the original release is a mock-commercial for the album featuring Tiny Tim and excerpts from a phone conversation with Allin about the album. Unlike many other GG Allin recordings, this release featured songs in the vein of country music, many of them acoustic.
Famous quotes containing the words edition, limited and/or carnival:
“I knew a gentleman who was so good a manager of his time that he would not even lose that small portion of it which the calls of nature obliged him to pass in the necessary-house, but gradually went through all the Latin poets in those moments. He bought, for example, a common edition of Horace, of which he tore off gradually a couple of pages, read them first, and then sent them down as a sacrifice to Cloacina: this was so much time fairly gained.”
—Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (16941773)
“The progress from an absolute to a limited monarchy, from a limited monarchy to a democracy, is a progress toward a true respect for the individual.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Looks like some carnival lost a good act.”
—James Gleason (18861959)
