Orphans – Vinyl Only Bonus Tracks (2009)
Because 56 Tracks Just Weren’t Enough
Tom Waits’ 3CD odds & sods compilation, Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards, was unquestionably one of his best releases in almost a decade. It was filled to the brim with vault material that Waits had, inexplicably, left sitting in the can. Pitchfork reported last month that for the December 8th vinyl release of Orphans, the 7LP set would be fattened with six bonus tracks. I don’t have a turntable anymore… or the desire to re-purchase a set of material I’ve already paid for, so I’ll be passing on the vinyl. You might feel the same way. It’s a good way to re-promote a great collection, though, which we’re doing here.
