339 Tom Waits Round 2

Have we done a Tom Waits album already? I feel like we have and I didn’t like it. I liked this one.

The Heart of Saturday Night is Waits second album released in 1974. Must not have made much of an impression because other than the Gold UK certification, there isn’t much information listed about it. I did find that the album cover is based on In the Wee Small Hours by Frank Sinatra and the title song was written as a tribute to Jack Kerouac. It’s a bluesy folk album and I enjoyed listening to it. Not a rush over to iTunes and download it kind of enjoyed it but I’d listen to it again on Apple Music.

 Asylum, 1974
