Tom Waits: Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards: And All the Sinners Know What He’s Talking About

Tom Fucking Waits

Wassonii’s MOG pointed the way to this excellent news for a Friday: three-disc set from Tom Waits hits in November. Rare stuff. Never-before-heard stuff. Oh yeah, we’re in. From the Anti release:

“Brawlers” is chock full of raucous blues and full-throated juke joint stomp, “Bawlers” contains Celtic and country ballads, waltzes, lullabies, piano and classic lyrical Waits’ songs, while “Bastards” is filled with experimental music and strange tales.

Sold. Find the track list on the Anti site here.
