Subject: RE: Review: Why won't Tom Waits play in England!!!!!
I saw TW once live...solo show on a twin bill with Leon Redbone opening. He was terrific. Stuart, Nighthawks at the Diner is, to me, one terrific live album. Not quite the same as seeing him, but still very good.
M.Ted, many who dug TW back when mention that his voice has deteriorated. I, too, felt let down circa Frank's WIld Years, Big Time, etc. I have found though, that with a few listens, TW's current style is just as engaging as ever. But as Tom might say, "Not for everybody."
