(Tom Waits - perfect for an August night - even 35 years ago)

I originally ran a short clip of this concert some months back, but promised I would run the whole thing as soon as the snappy C&L embed player got hooked up. Well now that it is, and we're 35 years past the exact day of the show, I thought I would put it up now so you can finally hear the whole thing.

If you heard the earlier excerpted version, you know what a great show this is - vintage Waits and his second set of the night.

A caveat - we had some mic problems that night, most notably a radio mic that was picking up the acoustic guitar. It was sounding weird and causing some hum and we eventually had to dump it mid-way through the set. But it's a small inconvenience and I've tried working around it so it's not all that noticeable.

At any rate - it's a great concert and a memorable night with Tom Waits at The Troubadour during its heyday on August 16, 1975.

Can you help us out?
