The cd is released in two versions. The ordinary run of the mill cd (with Tom Waits starring on the track Tootie Ma Is A Big Fine Thing) and a 'deluxe version' with extra tracks, including one featuring Tom Waits (Corinne Died On The Battlefield)

Thanks to everyone who pointed me in the right direction for this one, especially Jarlath and Nael.

Tom Waits' rendition of "Tootie Ma Is A Big Fine Thing" sounds pretty decent, but that's about it. It's nothing grand. Still, the tune is certainly one of the better tracks on the album. This album's strictly for those who'd like to give out for a good cause.
