“Closing Time”, Mr Waits debut album, has been out of print for quite a while. They have remastered it and is available on vinyl.
You can also listen to Tom Waits’ entire 1970’s Elektra Asylum catalog which has been re-released by ANTI and is available on all streaming and download services.
I got this message in the email too. It claims that:
Tom Waits has curated a 76 song playlist spanning his entire career. You can explore the decades of Waits’ many styles of storytelling swagger and heartbreak melodies here: http://spoti.fi/2DemeFW
I’m doubtful and find it improbable, that Tom Waits curated it. I’m skeptical. Wavering in my belief. One reason? I’m quite sure his “introduction” would be cooler. Or longer. Or shorter. I mean have you listened Tom get interviewed (see below)? No way he wrote that “intro”.
Either way it is a good reminder to get more Waits in your life. We all need more TW in our lives.
