iTunes Review

Just as Tom Waits is undeniably weird in the studio, he takes that approach to the stage where the energy of the crowd drives him to furious heights. His singing defies logic and, probably, physics. There is tenderness in his growl, evident with the first notes of “Lucinda / Ain’ Goin’ Down…,” which ticks like an extended take on Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “I Put a Spell On You.” The recordings from Glitter and Doom are taken from various shows throughout the U.S and Europe and strung together as one long night through Waits-World. “Singapore” from Rain Dogs is revitalized and sent up against the post-Big Time material (his last live album) such as Bone Machine’s gospel hymn “Dirt In the Ground” re-done in slower fashion, “Such a Scream” and “Goin’ Out West.” “Get Behind the Mule” originally from Mule Variations makes good use of his flexible backing band that includes son, Casey Waits on drums and percussion. Blood Money’s “The Part You Throw Away” holds a solemn grace. (The Bonus Track Version includes “Tom’s Tales,” between-song banter including stories and jokes that could only come from Tom Waits).

Customer Reviews

Not too bad..

Good live stuff but not too sure about Mr Waits nowdays.. am i the only one that thinks his voice is deteriorating a little too much? maybe its just me.. Shame that live versions of 'anywhere i lay my head', and 'warm beer and cold women' arnt on here... still love him though!! i would reccomend it to a die hard fan, but if you're a passer by i would instead point you towards one of his earlier albums..

Genius

For those of you who Don't like his voice, Fine. Its not a voice that you may be used to obviously, but if you can get past that, and listen. He is one of the most amazing people thats writes Music. You learn to love his voice, and you find yourself using it as a relaxing backround sound to your everyday life, he can lul you to sleep no problem at all, and all it takes is a little bit of encouragement to listen to the unknown. So buy the Album, and Enjoy it, if you don't then Unlucky, you just need to open your musical taste right open.

Genius.

Tom Waits is a theatrical and musical genius, and although some may criticise his age, or voice now, he still continues to amaze me, I believe his voice is what makes his songs so moving and epic, his career has spanned over 30 years and he can still produce breathtaking music. The only downside is there is no videos of the show.

Biography

Born: 07 December 1949 in Pomona, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

In the 1970s, Tom Waits combined a lyrical focus on desperate, low-life characters with a persona that seemed to embody the same lifestyle, which he sang about in a raspy, gravelly voice. From the '80s on, his work became increasingly theatrical as he moved into acting and composing. Growing up in Southern California, Waits attracted the attention of manager Herb Cohen, who also handled Frank Zappa, and was signed by him at the beginning of the 1970s, resulting in the material later released as The...
