    Hell, I'd be too scared to put it on a coffee table! No one would be allowed to put their drink anywhere near the thing! :lol:

    Yea it looks nice but a little too pricey for me. I ordered one of those limited edition poems / short stories from that site a while back. I got it and sent it back. It was about $50 but the quality was poor.

    **EDIT: not saying that this will be the same. Just when I thought I scored a cool limited edition I realised it was overpriced for what it was.

    It was the Seeds on the Ground book for 40 Euro but it was more like a pamphlet.

    (Sorry it was annoying me what the name of that thing was so I had to scroll through some emails to find out!)

    I was looking forward to this too but will have to reconsider at that price! I bet it's pretty stunning though.

    So I was listening to Rain Dogs there over the weekend. Its definitely one of my favourite Waits' albums. I absolutely love it. And would love to someday hear Pearl Jam cover "Gun Street Girl". I think it would suit Ed's voice and damn it I love the guitar picking.

    I've been on a big Waits kick lately. I just can't get over how wonderful his early stuff is. At least that's my favorite part of his career.

    The Heart of Saturday Night
    Blue Valentine
    Small Change
    Nighthawks
    Hearattack and Vine

    So this is one of my best mates and the guy who introduced me to Waits many years ago. He's not a bad singer himself and here's his versions:

    (Looking For) The Heart of Saturday Night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRmTmy8l1bE

    and

    Blue Valentine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdpVZiZziG4

    See what you think :thumbup:

    Having just seen (twice in two days!) Tom Waits in the Jim Jarmusch film "Down By Law" (I'm a big fan of Jarmusch and utterly confounded by the fact that I'd somehow missed this movie all these years until now) I'm led to ask you Waits fan this- where to start with Waits' music? I don't have any of his albums (and there are a lot of them!) and not sure where to start.

I don't have any of his albums (and there are a lot of them!) and not sure where to start.

    these good starting points that give a well rounded approach to his music, just choosing 2 each from different stages in his career

    Early:
    The Heart of Saturday Night - This shows his 70's songwriting mixed with jazz influences
    Nighthawks At The Diner - This was recorded live in studio in front of an audience of about 100 people, his 70's persona as a freewheeling jazz/singer songwriter is really captured here.

    Mid:
    Heart Attack & Vine - this is the bridge album between his past and future
    Rain Dogs - considered his peak album and defined Tom Waits of the 80's

    Later:
    Mule Variations - classic album, really well rounded and all-encompassing of his music
    Real Gone - Dark, grim album and first to not feature a piano composition

    If you like all of those, you'll end up buying his whole catalogue

    I agree with all those suggestions. Heart of Saturday Night was my first Waits album followed by Rain Dogs. Mule Variations is quite accessable and showcases a good range of Tom Waits' song writing ability. I think it was Heart Attack & Vine that pushed me over the edge with Tom.

    Looks like "Rain Dogs" is a good place for me to start.

    Descriptions of "Bone Machine" have me intrigued as well but probably not as a starting point.

    Small Change, his third album, was the first I had heard of him. Its an album that set me off in a different direction and I couldn't get over how one guy could pour his heart out like that. You can smell the cigarettes and whisky when you hear those songs. Its pure genius and I adore it. If Small Change doesn't do it for you...

    So true! :) I love all of his music but I really do have a soft spot for Bone Machine, being a little harder. Also adore Rain Dogs and Alice. ;)

    For those of you who haven't heard Tom Waits' 1978 performance on Austin City Limits, the whole show, in seperate videos for each number, can be found on YouTube. However, I wanted to share this because I find it to be one of the most gripping performances I've heard.

    I love how Tom enters into his actual singing voice when the narrator reads the line in the letter "Charlie, I almost went crazy..."

    Spectacular performance of "Christmas Card From A Hooker In Minneapolis": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1ZcxsHKBW4

    One of the best ACL performances I know of.

    Don't forget Swordfishtrombones. That's also a brilliant album. Even better than Rain Dogs, IMO.
