Say What You Will Clarence...Karl Sold the Truck is the debut album from Soul Asylum. It was originally released as Say What You Will... Everything Can Happen on August 24, 1984.


Now out of print, the original version Say What You Will... Everything Can Happen consisted of nine songs, and sold 6,738 vinyl copies and 2,639 cassettes. The album was reissued under its new title on CD in 1988 with five extra songs that had been cut from the original release. These five had been previously available only on Soul Asylum's rare cassette release, Time's Incinerator (1986).

"Karl Sold the Truck" refers to bassist Karl Mueller selling their Chevrolet pickup truck for a larger Dodge van which would be their transportation for their 1984 tour.
