Tom Waits is offering a free, eight-song preview of his upcoming live album, Glitter and Doom Live.
The way it works is the standard Topspin deal: you submit your email address, and then they email you a link to a 78 MB zip file. You download it, unzip the 320kbps MP3s, listen to them, and enjoy. If you are so inclined, you pre-order the album and everybody’s happy.
Glitter and Doom Live is a two-disc collection of recordings from his 2008 tour of the US and Europe. Disc one contains 17 songs. Disc two is “a bonus compendium called TOM TALES, which is a selection of the comic bromides, strange musings, and unusual facts that Tom traditionally shares with his audience during the piano set.” It’ll be fun to have that stuff whether or not you ever go back and listen to it more than once.
Tom Waits: iTunes, Amazon, Insound, wiki, web.

It’s actually an 84.3 MB zip file. Gotta love that press interview on his YouTube, too!
