Tom Waits - Alice (20th Anniversary) [Metallic Gold Vinyl]
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Tom Waits' 2002 album 'Alice' - the 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.
