As we mentioned on Friday, Austin City Limits
producers dug into their archives to re-air a classic Tom Waits episode from 1979
this past weekend. If you missed it, you're in luck as the episode is available online for
the next three
Taped in 1978, Waits and his band of Herbert Hardesty, Arthur Richardson, John Thomassie
and Greg Cohen were in Austin to support the release of Blue Valentine. We get a
first hand look as Waits transforms from more jazz-based compositions to bluesy grunts.
There's also a Christmas carol, Tom Waits style, as the singer-songwriter treats the
audience to "Silent Night / Christmas Card From A Hooker In Minneapolis."
Watch the episode before it's taken down on January 18:
