Waits has dubbed his summer 2008 tour “Glitter and Doom,” a trek through the lower half of the U.S. he described as “PEHDTSCKJMBA” (pronounced “pess-kuh-JUM-buh), an acronym for each of the tour’s stops: Phoenix, El Paso, Houston, Dallas, Tulsa, St. Louis, Columbus, Knoxville, Jacksonville, Mobile, Birmingham and Atlanta.

REVIEW: Tom Waits

By Jennifer Chancellor
World Scene Writer

It was a carnival-like revival of the surreal on the historic Brady Theater stage on Wednesday night at the Brady Theater, and Tom Waits was its swarthy-voiced ringleader.

The storied singer and spoken-word performer maneuvered between piano, guitar and maracas, and his band belted out tunes on clarinet, bass clarinet, doghouse bass, drums, keyboards, hand drums and more.

For this show, however, Waits’ trademark granulated voice was the ultimate instrument, from rumbling growls to falsettos and even beatboxing.

During Rain Dogs, he pulled his leg up and arms out, into a crane position and clapped his hands.

As he raven-cawed out the lyrics, We sail tonight for Singapore, the vivid blue, white, red and yellow spotlights blinked and burned against the crushed red velvet curtains behind him.

The near-capacity audience was set adrift into Waits intricate aural hallucination.

In between songs, he’d croak out salty monologues about the sound of corn growing to how sensitive eels are to alcohol.

Several times, he even gently shushed the amorous crowd, which often erupted into yells and chants for their favorite songs while he segued through his set after all, it was Waits first time to perform in Tulsa. Ever.

It was also his first performance in the Sooner state since 1974, when he opened for Frank Zappa in Oklahoma City.
As if drunkenly running from a hell hound on his heels, he staggered into Goin’ Out West, claiming he had a devil on a leash.

Throughout the set, fog roiled forth in bursts as he stomped his feet on the stage. Sweat streaked his cheeks like tears and saturated his three-piece gray suit.He never faltered.

The two-plus hour set was as eclectic as his decades-long career, as he barked out poetry to tunes like Lucinda, November, Black Market Baby, Innocent When You Dream, Cemetery Polka, Come on Up to the House, Rain Dogs and Lie to Me.

During the encore, he donned a mirrored bowler hat and spun like a disco ball.

So put a candle in the window and a kiss upon his lips,î he sang along to his encore tune Time.

I made a golden promise, that we would never part. I gave my love a locket, and then I broke her heart.

As the dish outside the window fills with rain / Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart / And pay the fiddler off till I come back again.

NOTES:
I decided to incorporate Diamonds On My Windshield and Spare Parts into a single track, despite that the back cover lists side B as tracks B1 – B5.
The condition of this vinyl bootleg was MINT when I played it back for digital transfer. There were only one or two pops, which I removed.
The exact date of this performance is unknown, but etree is claiming the date is from some point in February of 1975, so that’s what I’m going with (see link below).
Contrary to what the back cover says about the location of this recording, The Troubadour is technically located in West Hollywood, not Los Angeles.
Asylum Records released their own official compilation album entitled ‘Bounced Checks’, which does not contain anything from this recording.

I recorded this several years ago. The reason I never shared it is the big “hum” and other noise in this recording, especially in the Intro DJ and the first 2 minutes and 2 seconds of Eggs And Sausage. I tried to clean it, but wasn’t able to remove the “hum” without damaging music. The interfering noise reduces during the course of the show.

Om 2016-12-26 there was a rebroadcast. Unfortunately I was driving home from work at the beginning of the broadcast. I drove as fast as possible but only managed to record (this time digital) the last 2,5 songs (not added to this upload).

In the intro Hubert tells us he doesn’t know who recorded this. He was present at the show but he had the flu. He was covered with a blanket because of the fever. Two days later the flu was over. He calls it “The healing force of music”.
