Tom Waits - Round Midnight Minneapolis 1975 CD
In December 1975, Tom Waits entered the studios of KQRS Minneapolis for his first ever FM broadcast, floated across the airwaves by that very station and syndicated by many others nationwide.
Now considered the holy grail of Waits' broadcasts amongst serious collectors of the great man's work, this performance featuring Tom Waits alone at his piano with just his magnificent voice as accompaniment, the way he should be heard, is nothing short of staggering.
This CD contains the full KQRS broadcast in perfect FM stereo quality, during which Tom performs a range of songs taken from his first three records ('Closing Time', 'The Heart Of Saturday Night' and 'Nighthawks At The Diner'). Bonus tracks include a further three exceptional TV broadcasts from the early to mid 1980s, and include "Mr. Siegal" performed on Don Lang's show in 1981, plus two 1986 David Letterman broadcasts in support of his then brand new masterpiece 'Swordfishtrombones'.
