mastodon friends i trust you with this task:
what's a good tom waits album for someone who has a vague idea of what he's about and wants to listen to more but has no idea where he's going
(the someone is me)
which songs are about the SAD CLOWNS
@itsnero I started almost exactly like you, just trying to get into him without knowing where to start and there are a couple of great songs on Rain Dogs but on the whole what I got from it was liking the idea of Thom Waits more than the whole record. But it made me want to check out more albums at least.
@itsnero Tom Waits' Early Years Vol. 1.
Heartattack and Vine
When you've gotten through those, you'll be sold.
