Muddy Water holding his first recording. Recorded by Alan Lomax. Waters later told Rolling Stone: “He brought his stuff down and recorded me right in my house, and when he played back the first song I sounded just like anybody’s records. Man, you don’t know how I felt that Saturday afternoon when I heard that voice and it was my own voice. Later on he sent me two copies of the pressing and a check for twenty bucks, and I carried that record up to the corner and put it on the jukebox. Just played it and played it and said, ‘I can do it, I can do it.’”

A giant version of Tom Waits’ 2006 album Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastardshas been created as part of a unique art installation in London. The Portobello RECollection opened last week on the Portobello Road in West London, transforming a 100 m long wall into a giant record collection charting the musical influences of the neighborhood. Artists Natasha Mason and Teresa Crawley asked residents for their input on which records they would like to see represented. The result is a colorful celebration of the neighborhoodâ€™s musical heritage prominently featuring Waits acclaimed three CD/7 album set . The installation is scheduled to be in place for six months, so get your picture taken with a giant Tom Waits album while you can.
