Dog Door (2.43)
Tom Waits' new triple CD set features 30 new and never before heard tracks along with other rarities, organised into three groups: Brawlers, Brawlers, and Bastards. Waits says that, "if a record really works at all, it should be made like a homemade doll with tinsel for hair and seashells for ears stuffed with candy and money. Or like a good woman's purse with a Swiss army knife and a snake bit kit."
