Just checked out the tunes on Southside Johnny's website. "Grapefruit Moon" sounds great, and I will buy that CD. I love the covers of Waits' older material, like 'Please Call Me Baby' and 'New Coat of Paint,' but it's all good! 'Walk Away' features Waits singing a duet with Southside Johnny, and it really swings, to use that old term. The big band sound reminds me of some of the tunes on "One From the Heart."
