LISTEN :: James Brown – “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag” [TOM WAITS cover]August 18, 2010
WOW .. I certainly never thought I would hear Tom Waits, one of my favorite artisits, covering James Brown’s “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag.” What a great find over at the Anti-blog!
From Anti blog:
A rare Tom Waits version of the 1965 James Brown soul classic “Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag.” Less a cover of the original Brown penned masterpiece than an ingenious and maniacal reinterpretation recorded live in 1987 at Massey Hall in Toronto Canada during the “Frank‘s Wild Years” tour. On stage that night are Tom Waits on vocals, piano, bullhorn, Marc Ribot: guitars, banjos, trumpet, Willy Schwarz (introduced as Willie ‘the squeeze’) on accordion, organ, keyboards, Ralph Carney: saxophones, clarinet, bass clarinet, marimba, violin, baritone horn, harmonica, Greg Cohen: upright/ electric bass, box electric and Michael Blair on drums & percussion.
