Yesterday Is Here: Tom Waits Covers Vol. 2 & 3

Yesterday Is Here: Tom Waits Covers Volume 2
Various Artists
a the3penguins compilation

Here's volume two of Tom Waits covers (volume one here), with almost all new artists and almost all new songs. And we've got some great ones, with Bloodkin rocking out Clap Hands and the Boro Boogie Pickers doing just that (picking) out a bluegrass Jockey Full of Bourbon.

All tracks are good quality, with many soundboard. I have done nothing to them except fading in and out in Audacity.

If you have any ideas for other live unreleased Waits covers, let me know!! I need suggestions (and providing files themselves is even better!), so pass them along.

I just discovered these. Great stuff. Thanks you VERY MUCH for posting! There appears to be a fourth volume on dimeadozen. Is there any chance of posting that also in mp3-format here on your blog? I would love to get that one too.

Many thanks in advance,
