Tom Waits - Tales From The Underground Vol. 4 - vinyl bootleg

cover scans - click images to enlarge!

Front Back Insert On Back Insert Label 1 Label 2

Vinyl edition of the CD series of the same name from the 1990s.

To fit each release on a vinyl record, some songs from the CDs were omitted. Unfortunately, some unique tracks were dropped while some totally unnecessary tracks were left on, like Black Rider Demos, stuff that's already been officially released on Orphans or Bounced Checks, or songs without any Tom Waits involvement. Ironically, some of these notes are even reproduced on the sleeves, making one believe the bootleggers didn't even read the liner notes they printed.

Also, on this volume, the track list for both sides 1 and 2 on the sleeve is the same. To cover this up, the record came with a paste-on sheet with the correct titles (see photo).
