Preparing An Audience - Much like Tom Waits, Toth often writes tunes from the perspective of a character.

This disc compiles some of the best tunes from that perspective.

Cut down from over 700 songs, this archive series features some of the finest post-outlaw country songwriting from one of the best post-outlaw songwriters in the world.
