Tom Waits' Private Listening Party - Bad as Me
I have been listening to Tom Waits' for years, no make that decades and this gift with music is intertwined with his ear for language.
The between song batter with the audience is a performance piece all it's own and serves to tie the songs, their stories and Waits' performance character together in a complete package.
In recent years he has discovered the internets, and his video work on these album (did I just say album?) teasers are first rate.
Tom Wait's - Bad as Me is out today
If I had an IPod this would be on it.
