Dvd’s August 21, 2006

Posted by eyeballkid in Uncategorized.

A new Old Grey Whistle Test dvd release includes Tom Waits’ 1977 performance of Tom Traubert’s Blues. This 3 disc box is scheduled for release on August 29. It’s not listed in the BBC Shop yet, but it is available on Amazon.com

Play.com lists a Tom Waits dvd, scheduled for release for November 6. No further details are available, but as this is the only source for a new release, it seems highly unlikely this will be an “official” item.

am i the only person who wants a DVD collection of tom waits music videos over the years? just trolling around on youtube, i am struck at the man’s prolific video making career. he’s had videos directed by jarmusch and wexler, as well as some stunning new ones (like god’s away on business.)

i’ve dug around this site and the other comprehensive waits site, and haven’t found a definitive list of his music videos. anyone have any info?

Don’t know of any list but I know somebody who works at play.com – I’ll see if they can give me any further info on this

The three discs are brilliant, with Tom’s track a stand out. I remember the later bands included first time around. The show was way ahead of its time and was a clear inspiration for just about every live music show since. Worth getting for Tom alone. I agree with other posts when will there be nan anthology of film clips? It wont be long until someone else pastes all these videos together and sells them.

I have many music video’s of Tom. All of them downloaded and they all have very good quality.
I would buy the DVD immediatly but I think I pretty much have every music video he made.

I miss the black background!

This performance is already available on the first single dvd of Old Grey Whistle Test (released a few years ago) and is well worth getting for TW and all the artists. The new 3-dvd box just packages together the first two already out there with the newly released “Volume 3”.

I like the new grey background! Much easier on my eyes.

My vote is for the black background.

Is there a vote? Well my vote is also for the black background!

Another vote for the black background, if such a poll exists.

11. glittergirl - August 24, 2006

what about a pink background? or maybe red? like the red high heeled pump waits wears in the “i don’t wanna grow up” video!

let’s mix it up a little! LOL!

Grey, has to be grey

you can not ressume to be daunted with grief until it’s to late
voice weep in tom waits his voice
can you get to the picture of your mind
that is playfull in disguise
wanne know what’s real

dispensary rules

this millepede kissing
shourging the weak day’s of bright confusion
bricks astound me
the way the fall into the grace
secet is i never knew the way you where
and my spoiled friends are on the faith
i never presume the deafly trill
coming from a warzone
all the things that you had ignored
ozonic limps with psalter satin
the shorefooted vole the trinkery roose
