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!
Im calling bullshit on this one….
I’m sorry, but I don’t believe this is genuine. Bob’s voice sounds too much like a bad impersonation. Tom’s voice is close, but no cigar!
NO, I know the guy who found the CD’s – personally! It’s the REAL THING!
It’s a poor fake. Neither voice is close. Neither can sing remotely as well as Tom or Bob.
The tracks were pretty good–the Waits impression wasn’t bad at all. But by far the funniest part is the comments. “I’m calling bullshit on this one…” “I don’t believe this is genuine.” Yep, some people are just too sharp to be fooled.
the people who find this shite funny are the people I spend my life avoiding
no wonder most of the world hates Americans
c’mon Miles and Richard (if those are your real names) – get the wax out of your ears
It’s not Dylan and probably not Tom.
I don’t believe my ears, they keep telling me FAKE !!!!
This is not the voice of Bob!
this is a bullshit.. specially that one is not dylan c’mon
Of course this is not real. Don’t think about it for one second. This is a joke, and a bad one.
This is fake. Neither Bob or Tom sound anything like that; would only work as a joke if it were made clear that it’s an impression. Otherwise as it is, it’s disrespecting two fantastic artists.
Fuck off! That’s hilarious.
