If you are a fan of Tom Waits, or have even dabbled slightly, then this CD is recommended to you. Slotting neatly into Wait's post Jazz experimental phase (between Frank's Wild Years and the Black Rider, as I recall) this is a whistlestop tour of Waits' best moments. Guiding the crowd through anecdotes between songs, and instantly being able to switch moods between Preacher-Rock (Down in The Hole) and achingly sad blues (The Train Song). This performance is nothing short of fantastic. There are reinterpretations of some of his favourites (16 Shells and Clap Hands) that are a little rough, but otherwise, this is unreservedly recommended.
