Analog-One Productions Because it is Tom Waits and it is damn good. There are others I am going to grab later. Also, I consider it an inspiring influence for what I do. Words and performance that cuts like a knife. It hurts to listen to, in a good way. There is nothing else like it. Can't fit it into a pigeon holed format. It has neat jagged edges. I don't know what else to say. I just like it. And that is all! Favorite track: I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You.

Oynque This is where it all began - and I think it is the best entry point into Waits' considerable songbook as it is the most mainstream. Great songs and delivery, but Ice Cream Man stands out for its upbeat jazz tempo and haunting outro. Favorite track: Ice Cream Man.

about

Closing Time foreshadows the distinctly lyrical storytelling and original blending of jazz, blues and folk styles that would come to be associated with Waits. It is on this debut album that Waits performs enduring classics of his career “Ol’ 55” (famously covered by the Eagles), the heartbreaking “Martha” and the gentle acoustic folk of “I Hope That I Don’t Fall In Love With You”.
