Early Tom Waits Videos

An early interview and a performance of Burma Shave.

Singing Old Boyfriends on The Smothers Brothers show.

Frustrated in 1980, talking about leaving show business.

I'm glad he stuck around.

What's inspired this recent round of enthusiasm?

He still had a pretty good voice on "Old Boyfriends" there. However, his claim that New York is a small town is ridiculous in every way. Maybe I should re-start my album-by-album analysis. Or maybe we're still in the middle of a different series? Yes? No?
