The Jim Carroll Band- Catholic Boy (1980) MP3 & FLAC

Atco ~ 1989/1980

 “Poetry can unleash a terrible fear. I suppose it is the fear of possibilities, too many possibilities, each with its own endless set of variations. It's like looking too closely and too long into a mirror; soon your features distort, then erupt. You look too closely into your poems, or listen too closely to them as they arrive in whispers, and the features inside you - call it heart, call it mind, call it soul - accelerate out of control. They distort and they erupt, and it is one strange pain. You realize, then, that you can't attempt breaking down too many barriers in too short a time, because there are as many horrors waiting to get in at you as there are parts of yourself pushing to break out, and with the same, or more, fevered determination.”   ~ Jim Carroll

Catholic Boy  in FLAC:  Grab, Try, Then Buy!


  1. Love the Basketball Diaries movie which is the story of Jim Carroll. It has a decent soundtrack with the Cult and the Doors, Flea of RHCP, Posies and others. He does a song with Pearl Jam as well, Catholic Boy I believe. Downloading this now, Thanks!

  2. Thanks. Nice to see you back. Hope things are working out for you.

  3. MT, I watched Basketball Diaries yesterday. This is a great, very underrated NYC Punk album. Enjoy

  4. VinylRules, nothing is working out for me, at least so far, but I feel more connected to the world when I'm posting on these blogs, so I thought I should start up again. Good to hear from you

  5. Love this album... got it on white label promo vinyl
