Episode 18: After a fairly long break, Eric, Dave, and Sarah are back for a fun discussion of the always entertaining Tom Waits and his classic 1985 album, Raindogs. Considered by many to be his best album (in a very competitive field!), Raindogs absolutely barks with Waits' sometimes growling and sometimes gruffly crooning vocal instrument, as well as an array of wheezing calliopes, oomping tubas, and myriad other uniquely Waits-ian found sounds. But above all else is the songwriting -- few people can write a lyric and sing it like Tom.
