Comment:

Just when I thought life could not get any better, Tom Waits is coming to Knoxville and I have tickets. I am taking my son, who obviously has the best father in the universe. To celebrate I made this mix. It's not what I want him to play or what I think he will play, it's just some random Tom songs that I wanted to hear. It's not a shuffle mode mix. I selected songs that I didn't think I had put on previous mixes (I missed on a couple but they are worth it). Share my joy and excitement. Is it June 29th yet?

Ah Tom, the man with the scalded larynx. Joe Cocker, Bob Dylan and Tom could be the pop world's ironic answer to the three tenors. I have a few of his LP's but I find it hard to endure his vocal technique. Bit of a genius with words though.

That's cool, Funky, Strange Loop, Wad and I are going to see him here at the Fox on June 26, so I'll let you know how the tour is. My backup to the Wad is doowadette, so we'll see. I already felt like the best father in the universe when I took her to see Bob & Willie and we were up by the rail at the Sauge ballfield.Eggs and Sausage would be very nice to hear, among others.

'Diamonds' my favourite here- colder n a welldigger's ass! Other night my brother told me Tom and Tolkien represent the twin pillars of his universe. But Waits only plays in uk once in an ever, so bad luck for Ben.

I just wish acts like Waits and Plant/Krauss would play smaller venues. The coliseum atmosphere kept me away from Plant/Krausee. A 3-night run at the Tennessee Theater would be so much better. The obvious financial reasons dictate otherwise.

please give tom a cheer from me! i saw him last summer at the Orpheum in Memphis and I still can"t quite believe the evening happened.
p.s. my Dad took me to that concert, so he sort of beat you to the "Best Father In The Universe title!" I'm sure he'll be honoured to welcome you as a successor, though.

Saw him twice in '99, at the Wiltern in LA and the Beacon in NYC, both old Vaudeville-sized halls, which is where I think he works best. The Beacon show was the best live performance I have ever witnessed. Enjoy.

All your Tom Waits mixes are great! I like the oddness of this one- it's just random enough to make sense.
