This remixed /remastered edition of Tom Waits' 2004 album Real Gone was done by Karl Derfler. The crash and collide of rhythms and genres within a song creates a hybrid unlike any music he has made before or since. With songwriting and production partner Kathleen Brennan, he strips away almost everything conventional from these songs, taking them down to the essences of skeletal rhythms, blasted and guttural blues, razor-cut rural folk music, and the rusty-edge poetry and craft of songwriting itself.

Real Gone is like two records in one and the contrasting emotions of each play off of each other perfectly. The up tempo tracks are some of the rawest and most kinetic he’s ever laid down, while the ballads are among his most haunting and beautiful, even chilling at times. Taken as a whole, the experience is breathtaking. It includes "Day After Tomorrow", a protest song he wrote about the Iraq War.

Heavyweight double vinyl produced by ANTI in 2017. Remastered from the original analog tapes. Supervised by Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan.
