"I miss your broken china voice/I wish you were still here with me."

If you, too, missed Tom Waits on his Glitter & Doom tour, visit NPR for the next best thing--an audio recording of his complete concert at the fabulous Fox Theater in Atlanta. I saw him once, on possibly the best day of my live music life, when I'd spent the day in the sun with Guided By Voices, followed by a magical transcendence from Tom Waits in an old-world theater that evening during Austin's SXSW festival. Below is the set list from his Atlanta appearance on July. His ballads have always been my favorites. My favorite album of his is Rain Dogs. I wish he were my uncle.
