The footage is a little shaky, but the following YouTube playlist is a must for Tom Waits fans. Captured at Neil Young's annual Bridge School benefit last night, the 10-song set features members of Primus (Les Claypool) and Los Lobos (David Hidalgo) performing alongside Waits and his drummer/son Casey. And while it may appear that it's mostly drawn from Waits' last album, Bad As Me, some old favorites were also dusted off, including tracks from Small Change ("Tom Traubert's Blues") and Rain Dogs ("Singapore").
If only he'd tour again...
