Tom Waits at 78 rotations (on video)...

Once again, The Eyeball Kid finds the goods on Tom Waits before the rest of us.

Here's a video of "Tootie Ma Is A Big Fine Thing" being played on the Preservation Hall 78 player which, for those that don't know, is performed by Waits and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Probably doesn't sound too entertaining, but it's cool to hear the track. Plus, there's a curious cat that scrutinizes the player at some point.





For more information on the release, check out a previous blurb here, which contains links to a couple more informative resources.

Sincerely,
Letters From A Tapehead

It might be a far stretch, it might not but have you given Daniel Lanois' group, Black Dub, a spin yet? Trixie Whitley lends her vocals and it is amazing. Check out the NPR tiny desk concert; http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=131075032

Hi Kathy,

Thanks for the recommendation, I hadn't heard any Black Dub. Sort of mixed on the NPR track, but I'd be interested in checking out other songs.

Thanks for reading and for your comments,

Apologies for the quiet September. My time was needed everywhere but here. That said, I'm happy to end the month with some good singles ...
