Tom Waits

Closing Time

Anti 87565.2

Released on March 9, 2018


Recorded at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, California.The 1973 album that introduced a young singer-songwriter to the world at large is a far cry from the wonderfully twisted sonic lanscape that would define SWORDFISHTROMBONES a decade later. The Waits of CLOSING TIME was a barroom balladeer too, but one who rarely strayed from the early-'70s folk-rock paradigm (hell, the Eagles covered the opener "Ol' '55").The arrangements are straightforward, piano-based affairs that present the songs with a minimum of fuss. Waits voice isn't the deep, gravelly instrument that would bellow its way through RAIN DOGS, but a smoky, measured one, devoid of artifice. Accordingly, the song structures are simpler, and the best ("Martha," "I Hope That I Don't Fall in Love With You") attain a timeless feel. For all his relative conventionality on this debut though, Waits is still closer in spirit to the great American songwriters of the '40s than any '70s California rocker
