They're already so readily available. I've been thumbing through those titles at my local record store for years. Usually priced very reasonably. I guess Orphans is something but the others any fan that wants them already has them. Bone Machine goes for around $100 bucks on the other hand for a fan that's looking.

Yeah, my collection is rife with $10-$12 copies of the 70s stuff. I actually have two copies of some of those.

I guess there is an issue with Bone Machine and some of the other stuff where he doesn't get to decide on reissues? I don't want to sound like I'm blaming the guy.

On a positive note, seeing this email come through the other day lead to my sitting in a quiet lounge on our cruise ship, drinking long island teas, reading my book and listening to "Heart Attack and Vine".

It was a lovely afternoon.

I'm really only interested in Heartattack and Vine and Blue Valentine. I can't seem to find those anywhere near me. The others I see all the time.

Same. Although, I could possibly be talked into some better-sounding CD versions of the '80's Island albums -- those have always sounded kind of dull and airy to me.

I don't think I expect an album of newly recorded material from him at this point. I really think Bad As Me will be his final proper album. We'll only get collections from here on.

Crazy to think it's been nearly as long since "Bad As Me" as it was between "Real Gone" and "Bad As Me," and this time there were no tours, rarities comps, etc.

I'm not holding my breath but some new Waits would definitely hit the spot.

(He didn't die)

Man I haven't listened to his first few records in a while but these remasters sound really good.
