It's Louis Armstrong Meets the Sugar Puff Monster; It's Tom Waits!

Tom Waits - Tom Traubert's Blues - 1977

A young looking Tom Waits here, with that even more unbelieveable deep, gruff and powerful singing voice. This a pretty long song, it's "Tom Traubert's Blues" from Waits' 1976 album "Small Change", and is the opening song on the collection. Tom Waits vocal delivery is indeed inspired by Jazz great Louis Armstrong, I didn't realise that before I did the title, honest!
