Especially love Lucky Day from that album, but the second disc, I can happily lsten to Tom Waits talk nonsense all day but it gets a bit boring without the tunes to break it up and seague into.
Also MM, i know youre a big Rain Dogs fan, have you ever seen this?
The orginal set of pics they got the cover from, incredible stuff, looks like a great time. That whole site is pure gold for a Waits fan too.
I really wanted to see Tom on that tour but couldn't get tickets. They were a nightmare to get hold of, I don't know how you managed it. I work with a guy who saw Tom Waits in London on the Raindogs tour, and he still raves about it. He said that it was the best gig he'd ever seen (and he was in London during the 70's and 80's). High praise.
Also, I love the photography of Anders Petersen. Kind of reminds me of Arthur Fellig (Weegee)'s street photography. That website is really in depth. Good find.
