Tom Waits & Preservation Hall release 78 rpm.

Tom Waits teamed up with the Preservation
Hall Jazz band in 2009 to record a tune for
the P.H benefit album that came out last
February. The song in question was a cover of
Danny Barker's "Tootie Ma Is a Big Fine Thing".
It now seems they took things a step further by
announcing the limited edition release of a 78
rpm of the tune due on November 19th.

The 78 rpm which will feature "Corrine Died on the Battlefield"  on the b-side will be 
limited to 504 copies with all proceeds going to the Preservation Hall Junior Jazz & 
Heritage Brass Band. Did you toss out your 78 rpm player? No worry, they're also 
putting out their very own 78 rpm player (only 100 copies) as part of the deluxe
donation package. If you want to get a hold of these items: either be at Preservation
Hall at 10 a.m (cent) on November 19th or get it off the internet on November 20th
