Pollex Christi ("The Thumb of Christ") was the first of Ralph America's limited edition CDs by the Residents. Much of it consists of electronic adaptations of music from Orff's Carmina Burana. The piece was purportedly composed by the friend and collaborator from their early years, N. Senada, and in some ways plays on classical themes the same way their 1976 album, Third Reich and Roll, did with 1960s top-40 music. Two editions were released of 400 copies each, the first issue being hand numbered.
