Tom Waits “Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag”

File this under crazy but true. We have here a live recording from 1987 of Tom Waits performing the James Brown classic “Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag.” This thing was so unbelievable, that Tom’s label, Anti had to confirm via Twitter that it was in fact the man himself performing. The lyrics might be a bit hard to decode, but it’s worth a listen. The blog You Ain’t No Picasso has an MP3 if you’re interested.
