'Bill Hicks' "Salvation" is the only CD release featuring Hicks performing in England (Oxford Playhouse), where the comedic maverick found fame and more importantly, critical acclaim.
Here is Hicks at his most explosive, assaulting an audience with his fiery insights into our twisted world; President George H.W. Bush, the war in Iraq, government, religion, smoking, pornography, anti-drug paranoia, the English culture and even a couple of dick jokes. It is a credit to both Hicks' talent as a social satirist and the sad state of the world's affairs today that makes this performance more timely and relevant than ever. It's as if the CD was recorded only yesterday.
Simply put, "Salvation" is the ultimate document of an extraordinary performer at his absolute peak and who remains the most controversial and politically accurate comedian, even now, a decade after his death. Throughout his brief but brilliant career, Hicks was a fearlessly confrontational and always controversial force. Today he remains an inspiration to musicians, comedians, writers and filmmakers worldwide.'
'Salvation' is the full,unabridged version of 'Shock & Awe'(released in 2004), with over an hour of extra material.
