    Can somebody point me in the right direction for help?

    I bought the 7-LP pressing of this when it was new. I have a tendency to buy records, and they sometimes will sit on my shelf for years before I open them and play them. I played my copy of this for the first time last year, and it sounds beautiful.

    The problem is a packaging error, wherein there is no LP-6, and two records of LP-5.

    I've tried to contact the record label, to no avail. Is there anyone else I could reach out to to correct this error? I know the set is long-out-of-print. Maybe is there anyone out there who has two of LP-6, and would like to trade?

      There were a limited pre order versions signed by Tom Waits himself. Anyone has this?

        There was a sticker on the front quoting music journalists stating how wonderful this was and that it was Mr Waits best effort yet, but personally I found it lacking and delivered with little conviction from what we have became accustomed to expect. Unlike his other albums the music didn't seem to hang together as a coherent unit and the title Orphans seemed quite fitting.
