The Best Bootlegs: Tom Waits Tales From The Riverside
A compilation of various tracks from various sources and I don’t think it was ever released commercially. But, quite a few of the songs has been released on Orphans and that’s why I’m inclined to call it a playlist rather than a bootleg. Anyway, I think it is a good compilation and one of the most played Tom Waits playlists in my home.
The track listing is taken right from the original artwork scans from the people at tomwaitsuper.blogspot.com (now sadly closed), with a few additions from myself.
As we all know, the Tales From The Underground bootleg series is a great thing, for it features a huge collection of rare Tom Waits-songs that can’t be found on his official albums. Nevertheless, the folks who produced those bootlegs made some mistakes and forgot some great recordings. And there were a lot of new songs released after Tales From The Underground Volume 5 came out.
This compilation is meant as an addition to that great set. It’s entitled Tales From the Riverside.
