While many performers have a hard time with the Storytellers format, Tom really flourishes, making the
most of each opportunity to tell one of his hilarious stories that sometimes
have a little to do with the lyrics and sometimes nothing at all. Mule
Variations is one of my favorite Waits albums, and my three favorite songs
on it are included here. The version of Tom in his 1999 voice performing
Ol' 55 (and the hilarious story that preceeds it) is priceless. The band
is excellent, the arrangements are tasteful and interesting, and the vocals
are simply perfect. I won't spoil it any more for those who have yet to hear
this, but I will say that it should be one of the first Waits bootlegs you
should have in your collection.
