Tom Waits :: Books Of Moses (Skip Spence)

Twelve or so years ago Birdman Records released More Oar, a 17 track tribute to the music of Alexander 'Skip' Spence. Outside of his work with Jefferson Airplane and Moby Grape, the compilation served as my introduction to Spence's solo work. Among others, participants include Mark Lanegan, Robert Plant, Beck, Robyn Hitchcock, Jay Farrar and Alejandro Escovedo. And while all of the aforementioned interpretations hold up, it's Tom Waits' midnight graveyard reading of "Books Of Moses" that remains . . .
