Tom Waits' 2002 album Alice is a haunted, moody chamber piece devoted to the obsessive, forbidden love of Charles Dodgson for Alice Liddell, for whom Alice in Wonderland was created. Piano, pump organ, cello, Theremin and Stroh violin are the main instruments employed for these melancholy and comic musings on death, longing, and the random meanness of life. Waits adapts the classic blues jazz balladry his early career in the eponymous song, “Alice” and the seasick pump organ and strings ode to the wall that separated East from West Germany, “Lost in the Harbor". Alice is strange, but wonderfully so. Listening to it transports listeners into Waits' sometimes nightmarish world, but it's a world that's very well worth a visit. 

Heavyweight double vinyl produced by ANTI in 2017. Remastered from the original analog tapes. Supervised by Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan. Side D features etching. Gatefold sleeve.
