Sunday Video: Get Behind The Mule

I ended up getting this track as part of a compilation that was released with a particular issue of Uncut magazine. This video is as close as I can get to having a performance, like or otherwise that matched the album track in terms of sound quality and Tom Waits sounding at that level of bass.



To me, this song is just so evocative. It paints so many scenes, it blows me away almost every time I hear it.

Love Tom Waits - his voice alone tells stories, not to mention his lyrics. Though I also understand why he's hard to get behind for some people.

Is it more or is his voice getting deeper and more gravelly as the years go by?
