TOM WAITS

GLITTER AND DOOM LIVE

2009-11-09

In 2008 Paste magazine called Tom Waits Glitter and Doom tour the best live show of that year. The 17 tracks on this disc were recorded in 10 different locations and showcase some of Tom’s finest works. This CD will bring smiles to fans that were with him during Closing Time all the way to his Real Gone Days. The CD includes crowd favorites from “Get Behind The Mule” originally found on Mule Variations and “Singapore” from the now classic Rain Dogs release. “Dirt In The Ground” from Bone Machine may be one of the most captivating songs ever recorded by Mr. Waits. Tracks like “Fannin Street”, “Lucky Day” and “I’ll Shoot The Moon” are all tracks that will bring smiles to fans who liked Tom’s early years. “Live Circus” certainly represents the off kilter story telling side of Tom. This release will set along with some of Tom’s finest works and that’s saying a lot. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
