I did get hold of the new Tom Waits live CD, Glitter and Doom. If you're someone like me who just can't stand knowing there are Tom Waits recordings out there you haven't heard, go get it. Much as I love the guy, I don't think live performance is his strong suit. However: there is a performance of Dirt in the Ground that stands out. I grew up on the studio version from Bone Machine, but here he's turned it into this strange, mournful kind of sermon. It's weird magic, and I love it.

A quill from a buzzard
in blood writes the word.
And I want to know,
am I the sky or the bird?

Hell's boiling over.
Heaven is full.
We're chained to the world,
and we've all gotta pull.
