MOJO Presents… Step Right Up! (2010)

Mojo Presents
Step Right Up!
(July, 2010)
Compiled By Tom Waits

The latest freebie to accompany Mojo Magazine is a cool, 15 track collection compiled and sequenced by Tom Waits. As you might imagine, the gathering includes some gut bucket blues, but there’s also some righteous, Richter scale weirdness, country essentials, a Disney classic and even a “single” version of the Gavin Bryars/Tom Waits bizarro world classic, “Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet.” Waits’ quote in the liners is worth reprinting, “Some songs come out of the ground just like a potato… some tunes, if you break them open… you will find eggs.”

    Gotta love Tom Waits. He’s like Bob Dylan on hard liquor.
