For those of you who purchased the Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers, and Bastards collection on vinyl, upon its 2009 release, the following is old news. But if you, like me, have the set on compact disc, keep reading. The vinyl release of Waits’ odds and sods compilation came with an additional six bonus tracks: “Crazy Bout My Baby,” “Diamond In Your Mind,” “Canon Song,” “Pray,” “No One Can Forgive Me,” and “Mathie Grove.” Thanks to Willard you can download mp3 rips of the tracks here.

  1. “Diamond in Your Mind” is a great song. The only place I’d heard it before was a live performance by Tom and the Kronos Quartet at a concert for the Dalai Lama. (There are four songs total on that live record called Healing the Divide: A Concert for Peace and Reconciliation.) Awesome to get these. The Orphans set was one of the best things to be released in music in the past decade.

  2. Aquarium drunkard ….have i told you lately how much i love you?

  3. “Diamond in Your Mind” was covered by Solomon Burke back in his “Don’t Give Up On Me” album back in ’02 or 03. Great tune, great record.
