Tom Waits (who I’d consider a master of the short-short story form, just listen to Alice if you weren’t already convinced) is putting out a live album from last year’s Glitter and Doom tour. The best part is disc 2of the set, entitled “Tom Tales,”  will be solely devoted to Tom’s stage banter, jokes, shaggy dog  stories, and other well formulated lies most likely to contain midgets, hookers, and maybe a demon here or there. It’s available on November 24th.
