Tom Waits - Discography - 320kbps Bitrate

TOM WAITS

Thomas Alan Waits (born December 7, 1949) is an American musician, composer, songwriter and actor. His lyrics often focus on the underbelly of society and are delivered in his trademark deep, gravelly voice. He worked primarily in jazz during the 1970s, but his music since the 1980s has reflected greater influence from blues, rock, vaudeville, and experimental genres.

Waits was born and raised in a middle-class family in Pomona, California. Inspired by the work of Bob Dylan and the Beat Generation, he began singing on the San Diego folk music circuit as a teenager. He relocated to Los Angeles in 1972, where he worked as a songwriter before signing a recording contract with Asylum Records. His first albums were the jazz-oriented Closing Time (1973) and The Heart of Saturday Night (1974), which reflected his lyrical interest in nightlife, poverty, and criminality. He repeatedly toured the United States, Europe, and Japan, and attracted greater critical recognition and commercial success with Small Change (1976), Blue Valentine (1978), and Heartattack and Vine (1980). He produced the soundtrack for Francis Ford Coppola's film One from the Heart (1981), and subsequently made cameo appearances in several Coppola films.

  6. Thanks mate, you're a star. He got better with time. Goes next to my collection of another 3 loved by a few dead painters like me: Scott Walker (huge discography somewhere 67-2014) who got leftfield with age too, very inspirational. Nick Drake, several albums, about 5 or 6 releases should include all his stuff. And 2 official and maybe 3rd bootleg album of Syd Barrett, produced by his childhood friend & guitar teacher when he came back from Germany to take Barrett's place in PF & copied his student's style till now but never approached that simple power. He says Barrett was so brain-fried that he had to unzip him in the studio loo. But the music is great, so are the other two. Anyway thanks again mate.
