This is a thoroughly enjoyable twisted mess, just as you would want a Tom Waits live album to be. Worth getting if you enjoyed the Swordfishtrombones/Rain Dogs/Franks Wild Years trilogy. It's just a shame there aren't more spoken clips: when he tells the story about the soldier and the pregnant girl, it makes you realise he could pretty much wipe the floor with most stand-up comics.

As one reviewer pointed out, the sound quality isn't great and you may find yourself lungeing for the volume control sometimes.

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.

Fantastic live set by the modern master of lyrical ballads and Harry Partch style microtonal madness.
-1 star for sound quality

I had this LP years ago and it still sounds fantastic. Tom is so underrated as an artist and song writter.
