Tom Waits’ first seven albums, originally released through Elektra Asylum Records in the 1970’s, have been re-mastered and will be re-released via Anti-Records. All titles, many of which have been long out of print, will be re-issued on hi-quality 180 gram vinyl throughout 2018. CD versions will be available on 23 March with the first record, Waits’ debut album “Closing Time” available on 180 gram vinyl, digital platforms and streaming services from 9th March. The record foreshadows the distinctly lyrical storytelling and original blending of jazz, blues and folk styles that would come to be associated with Waits. You can order it in its various formats here, or you can listen to the whole thing below. Nice blue lamp Tom!
