Jersey Girl

I had been meaning to post this tune for ages after hearing it on something on the tv a while ago but it went out of my head, however Mr H over at The Ghost of Electricity posted another Tom Waits track to accompany Friday's shennanigans at our virtual local which spurned me on to post it this morning.

Jersey Girl is just one of many favourite Waits tracks of mine. It was first included on the 1980 released Hearattack and Vine. it has been appropriated by Bruce Springsteen and is a live favourite of his but his version although good doesn't come close to the original.

Love this track. Unlike most people (it seems) I definitely 'prefer his early stuff'.
