Free Tom Waits

Tom's releasing an album called Orphans soon. It's off-cuts and B-sides and stuff he found in his closet or something like that. Sounds interesting, it's spread over 3 CDs called Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards respectively.
At the center of this record is my voice. I try my best to chug, stomp, weep, whisper, moan, wheeze, scat, blurt, rage, whine, and seduce. With my voice, I can sound like a girl, the boogieman, a Theremin, a cherry bomb, a clown, a doctor, a murderer…I can be tribal. Ironic. Or disturbed. My voice is really my instrument.

His record label, Anti, have made "Bottom Of The World" from the Brawlers CD available to download, which is jolly good of them.

Via the newly redesigned Glorious Noise who have plenty of links to other free Mp3s.

I recognise a few numbers. 2:19 was recorded by John Hammond on his 'Tom Waits' album. Buzz Fledderjohn I saw on a charity album in America - can't remember which charity and I didn't buy 'cos the rest of the album looked shit. Heigh Ho is from the Disney album Stay Awake by Hal Wilner who also did the recent Rogues Gallery - which is excellent BTW.
