The highly imaginative and original Ralph Carney is gone and we send our condolences to his family and all those who loved him…

Ralph came from the land of strange and whimsical. He could be exploding like popping corn or stretched out like taffy, capable of circular breathing and punctuating and drawing shapes that dangled from your ears. He was simultaneously very old and very young and both an endearing and enduring pain in the ass.

Bless you Ralph, wherever you are. Tom and Kathleen

In a world where everything from Sgt Pepper to What’s Going On? is considered fair game for remix “upgrading”, it’s only slightly surprising – given his nose is generally sniffing the future rather than the past – to find Tom Waits offering this revised version of his rasping, clanky collection of “cubist funk” Real Gone, which was already pretty perfect to begin with.

‘Real Gone’ has been remixed and remastered by Waits/Brennan to sound better than ever on all of the digital music services. Some of the new mixes are radical transformations from the original versions and the whole album crackles and steams with fuller intensity and more vivid intimacy. You can find it at the Tom Waits Store or at your local record shop.
