ORPHANS - LP BOX SET (180G VINYL) - Waits, Tom
Not Available Online
Orphans has been a genuine phenomenon in the storied career of Tom Waits, a collection of "songs that fell behind the stove while making dinner," that has been greeted with open arms by thrilled Waits fans. The album quickly became his fastest-selling release ever, his first certified gold record, and a genuine classic in the Waits cannon. The collection goes far beyond a simple career retrospective, with over 30 newly recorded songs - from Waits' own versions of songs he gave to other artists to some "things I recorded in the garage with the kids". Over two-thirds of the material has never been heard before now. In addition to the new work, Orphans features a number of tracks finding a home on a Waits album for the first time. They include Waits' unique interpretations of songs by such diverse talents as The Ramones, Daniel Johnston, Kurt Weill & Bertolt Brecht, and Leadbelly. Now Waits is bringing Orphans to a glorious-sounding 7 LP box set, all pressed on 180 gram vinyl, and housed in a deluxe pull-out case. In addition, Waits has added six more tracks from the archives, including Tom's irreverent take on Fats Waller's "Crazy 'Bout My Baby". Longtime Waits fans and the newly converted will want to own this collector's edition of one of Waits' most important releases. The bonus tracks are: Crazy 'Bout My Baby, Diamond In Your Mind,Cannon Song, Pray, No One Can Forgive Me, Mathie Grove.
