''Alice'' is an album by Tom Waits, released in 2002 on Epitaph Records (under the ''Anti'' sub-label). The album contains the majority of songs written for the play ''Alice'', based on the forbidden love between Lewis Carroll and Alice Liddell, for whom he wrote the story ''Alice's Adventures in Wonderland''. The adaptation was directed by Robert Wilson, whom Waits had previously worked with on the play ''The Black Rider'', and originally set up at the Thalia Theatre in Hamburg in 1992. The play has since been performed in various theatres around the world.
The album was co-released with ''Blood Money'', containing songs from a play adapted by Robert Wilson from Georg Büchner's ''Woyzeck''.
It was ranked #2 in Metacritic's Top 30 albums of 2002.
The songs had been released as a bootleg in several different versions called ''The Alice Demos'' many years before its official release. The source is believed to be studio recordings taken when Waits' car was broken into in late 1992.) - Wikipedia
