Tom Waits ANTI- Artist Page

Tom Waits, according to the esteemed American critic Robert Hilburn, is ?clearly one of the most important figures of the modern pop era?. Such sentiments are not mere hyperbole; in a career that now spans four decades and over 20 albums, Tom Waits has long since emerged as an extraordinary innovative force, a singular voice whose music remains determinedly ? and even gloriously - well beyond the trivial fads and fashions of popular culture. Waits? latest release, the 3CD set ?Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards? adds further weight to that stellar reputation.

?Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards? is a wide-ranging collection of 54 songs - including 30 new recordings ? equaling over three hours of rare and never-before heard music. The set comes complete with a 94-page booklet.

Each of the three CDs is separately grouped and sub-titled ? ?Brawlers?, ?Bawlers? and ?Bastards? ? to capture the full spectrum of Waits? ranging and roving musical styles. ?Brawlers? is chock full of raucous blues and full-throated juke joint stomp; ?Bawlers? comprises Celtic and country ballads, waltzes, lullabies, piano and classic lyrical Waits? songs while ?Bastards? is filled with experimental music and strange tales.

In addition to the new work, ?Orphans? features a number of songs originally recorded for the cinema, the theatre and other projects but which now find a home on a Waits? album for the first time. They include his unique interpretations of songs by such extraordinarily diverse talents as The Ramones, Daniel Johnston, Kurt Weill & Bertolt Brecht, Leadbelly, Sparklehorse, Charles Bukowski and Jack Kerouac.
