Tom Waits

Postby EddieV » Fri Feb 29, 2008 2:37 pm

Just bought a cd with him today. An old one. I guess it will take some time to get used to this!!

Anyone listening to him?

I'm afraid I can't get into him at all. He just makes me want to clear my thoat!

I wonder which one you got. I like some of the very old, old stuff, and like some of the more recent stuff even more than that, but...for me, his absolute peak is "Raindogs" followed very closely by "Swordfishtrombones" (both are from the mid-80's)...if you haven't heard those two they are pretty incredible. Blessings!

It is called Nighthawks At The Diner.

I think you have to have a bottle of scotch when hearing this.

Tom Waits is definitely an acquired taste and I still haven't acquired it yet. Its been over 30 years and I still cringe when I hear his voice. I believe this is what anyone would sound like after an entire litre of Scotch and a dozen cigars with a bit of Piano playing ability. But yet, I still own 2 Tom Waits CD's . Go Figure

Tom Waits makes very demanding music, has a voive that not always is a pleasant listening experience - at the same time he manages to make some of the most beatiful vibrant music ever. I love his stuff, one of the true greats no doubt about it
