ALBUM OF THE WEEK - 23/11/09: TOM WAITS - GLITTER & DOOM: LIVE

TOM WAITS - GLITTER & DOOM: LIVE
In 2008, Tom Waits launched a sold-out tour, garnering intense critical praise – Daily Telegraph named Waits 'The greatest entertainer on Planet Earth' – and thrilling fans across the world, some in cities where Waits had never played before. Now comes the document of those concerts, 17 performances hand-picked by Waits from along the tour. Leaning heavily on songs from his ANTI- releases – including a haunting “Trampled Rose” from Real Gone and roaring “Get Behind the Mule” from Mule Variations – Waits also digs into the vaults for tracks like a re-imagined “Singapore” from 1985’s Rain Dogs. "Glitter And Doom Live" will reside in the Waits catalogue alongside earlier live albums like "Nighthawks at the Diner" and "Big Time", both discs held on par with his classic studio releases by fans.
