This is exciting! Check this out:
While sifting through an old box of CD’s given to us by a retired Irish dentist named Ken from Farmington, Arkansas, we came across a very rare gem – a collection of Tom Waits and Bob Dylan duets entitled “Tom and Bob”. The CD is very scratched, and only 4 of the tracks will play. We could not find any remaining tracks on the internet anywhere, so we looked up the record company who had distributed the album. Our research yielded some interesting information…
In the mid and late 90′s there was a small label based out of Southern California who produced and released the album – We have contacted the owner (who wishes to remain anonymous) and they are no longer in business, nor pressing any re-issues. He did give us permission however to publish the playable tracks. He is currently attempting to restore the masters, and when he does hopefully we will be able to get a copy, but in the meantime, you can view what we could rescue from the CD on our Youtube Channel or download them from a Bandcamp called Tom and Bob.
The 1st duet – which opens the album – is a particularly interesting version of Sonny and Cher’s “I Got You Babe”:
The 2nd duet is a slamming rendition of the Starland Vocal Band’s “Afternoon Delight”. Tom and Bob really hit the spot with this one:
The 3rd duet is a slightly unsettling father-daughter duet of Bob Carlisle’s “Butterfly Kisses”:
The 4th and final duet is a truly amazing rendition of the Beastie Boy’s “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)”. From everything we can tell, Arnold Schwarzenegger appears on this track as well:
Hope you enjoy! We sure did!
May 25th we will release “Volume Four”. It will be our last volume. The CD will be available on iTunes and our Bandcamp page (dbrs.bandcamp.com). New song from the album “Dear Grandma” just posted there. Dig it.
To celebrate we will also be releasing a music video for “Jewish Girls Who Went To Art School Know All The Angles” on that day on our Youtube channel, and throwing a party that night (10pm) at the Blue Nile to celebrate the CD’s release. Live in New Orleans? Come on down to Frenchmen Street, pick up a physical copy and celebrate with us. Facebook event HERE.
Don’t live in New Orleans? Fear not… There’ll be a full national tour to support its release. Dates & more info on the sidebar to the left.

Pretty cool, ya? This sweet baby’s droppin’ – disc, lyrics, cellophane & all – March 30th at the Maison here in New Orleans on Frenchmen St. We’re proud to announce that Alex McMurray and friends will be opening the show, and Magnetic Ear will be playing the afterparty.

Thanks everybody who voted for the cover. Even if yours didn’t win, I think you’ll find a little piece of all 3 in the finished product. One month till it’s yours. Until then…
Volume III is almost finished being mixed/mastered, and so we need an album cover pronto! Help us decide – which of the 3 samples below is your favorite?
So, what’s it gonna be – #1, #2, or #3? Let us know on our Facebook wall or in the comments section below and we’ll post the winner next week. ~ DBRS
