Now this place is starting to feel like home.

I worked my way through (what I own of) his discog on vinyl last night. Great way to celebrate the end of 2012 and welcome in 2013.

Me neither, I really only sat down and listened to it once I got the vinyl. Aaaaaand then I realized that is where the Large Marge story from Pee Wee's Big Adventure came from.

So Tom is going to be on The Simpsons this Sunday...?

I'm on my way to Miami Beach tonight (flight leaves at midnight)...I do believe I'll be listening to the Orphans discs.

Nice song...Keith and Tom should do a full album of songs like this...reminded me of That Feel.

i love that song.

That Tom Waits continues to choose to collaborate with Keith Richards when he has a guy like Marc Ribot in his address book is, to me, subtle proof that the guy is fallible after all.

Oh come on...he's got many different sides (and a shit-ton of Ribot songs). A couple of his songs with Keith Richards are pretty damn good.

Plus if he wasn't so enamored with Keith we may not have gotten Rain Dogs the way it came out...and tell me what's fallible about that record?

His guitar playing on Rain Dogs means nothing to me, and I hate his backing vocals on "Blind Love."

The more Ribot the better as far as I'm concerned.

I was talking about the album itself and its roots to Exile. If Anywhere I Lay My Head means nothing to you then shame on you.

It's almost impossible to exaggerate the impact of the Stones on post 1980-Waits. They're up there with people like Howlin' Wolf and James Brown in terms of how distinctly their impact shines through. It says enough that, when the record company asked Tom if there were any musicians he'd really like to see play on his new record (Rain Dogs), he immediately shot back "Keith Richards."

Ribot might well be my favorite guitar player of all time, but Tom's work with Keith has a distinctive slurring, bleary-eyed groan to it that is unique to those pieces and which I'm glad is a part of his palate.

Me too...and Christ, do I love the era of Stones that he's most influenced by. Exile is my favorite record of all-time and while Rain Dogs isn't my favorite Waits record it kind of opened him up to everything that came after and is a spectacularly good record in its own right.

Plus, ain't nothing wrong with a dude throwin' down with other dudes that he likes throwin' down with. He obviously has a great time recording with Richards. Tom Waits has earned a little bit of fun.

Plus Ribot seems quite a bit darker, but that might just be me assuming...and some of the brighter (albeit usually with some tinge of irony) songs can really shine through on his records.
