Yes or no, team?

Spoiler: show
I'd be a yes if the arrangement wasn't so vanilla. I'd probably enjoy it as a surprise in a live set, though.

Me too -- and I like this heavily orchestrated version a lot better than the sparse demo on the "Early Years" comp.

Yeah it's very Bacharach-y

(I don't know that I've ever heard the Early Years version)

Certainly pleasant enough, but I think it is served especially well by the orchestration -- the song really calls for it. It has echoes of Bacharach, as you say, but also of classic schlock country ballads.

Downloading tonight but I won't be able to start listening until tomorrow. can't wait - a ton of songs on here I don't know.

I love Corrine died on the battlefield, though. I had it as the closing track on my last RM secret mix.

Having some general sense of your Waits preferences I think you'll enjoy the second disc more, Stip -- though some of my favorite early Waits tunes are on CD1 (the "Paradise Alley" stuff specifically).
