Tom Waits - Alice (Original Demos) 1992
LOVE THIS. BETTER THAN THE REAL ALBUM.
The songs had been unofficially released on a bootleg called The Alice Demos many years before this official release. The source of the bootleg release is supposed to be from studio recordings made for the cast of the play, and was taken when Waits's car was broken into in late 1992 (as confirmed by Waits in interviews. Several different versions of the bootleg album were in circulation before the release of the official version.
