Just listened to Heart Attack & Vine which is one of my favorites that I don't hear people mentioning very often. My college roommate and I drove people crazy (in not a good way) blasting the title song and screaming out the lyrics and stomping around.

Somehow missed this post before; I've also been listening to HA&V a lot lately.

Standouts for me are On The Nickel and Jersey Girl.

Bad As Me is now available in 24/96 FLAC.

https://www.hdtracks.com/index.php?f...HD045778715145

Sort of wish I hadn't shelled out for the vinyl.

Do it. The gorgeous booklet alone is worth it.

No, no. I already have it on vinyl, but I'm tempted to buy the hi-rez FLAC.

"Tom Traubert's Blues" is the only song that I'm really familiar with on Small Change but, damn, it's stunning.

I'll get to the rest of the album at some point.

Actually just put that on my iPhone today to listen to in the car.

Any fans of Foreign Affairs here?

Listening to Closing Time again, it's hard to believe that the same guy made it who also made something like Bone Machine. I wonder how he feels about a track like "Ice Cream Man" now.

definitely in need of some more Tom Waits. It's become an addiction almost, LOL. What's next, lads? Anything you recommend from before Swordfishtrombones?

Work your way back. Blue Valentine has his greatest song ever IMO (Kentucky Avenue), and Heartattack and Vine is also pretty awesome.

For whatever reason I had never heard Blood Money.

Damn, Coney Island Baby is a hell of a tune.
