I really need to go out and find some Tom Waits to OWN.... I love this guy... Thanks for sharing....

Lemmy Caution said...

Dig into either Rain Dogs or Mule Variations. Probably his 2 best albums.

Claudia said...

Rain dogs is by far the best album to date.

Professor Chaos said...

I would throw Bone Machine into the running for best Tom Waits album. Also, Heart of Saturday Night, if you're looking for something a bit more mellow.

giggles said...

Oh. I see I've got a list going here.... I will take note!!!!!!

Thanks!!!!

Lemmy Caution said...

The Professor makes a damn fine point.....Bone Machine is not to be overlooked. Heck, if Goin' Out West was the only song on the album, it would still demand tons of respect.

And Claudia is probably correct...Rain Dogs is that damn good. It covers an insane amount of stylistic ground extremely well.

I love Alice. It's lyrically brilliant and has the feel of musical vignettes.

Lemmy Caution said...

Yes....Alice and Blood Money, which were released on the same day, are both very good and extremely theatrical. Even for Tom.
