Waits, Tom - On The Line in '89 : 2 x CDs

SKU 21-GOSS025
"By 1989, Tom Waits was looking back on a decade that had proffered exceptional results. Having grown out from his 1970s barroom crooner and piano balladeer styles, Waits dared to be different at a time when many of his contemporaries were turning to the synthesiser and drum machine. Producing a quite extraordinary body of work during the '80s, including the trio of albums linked by theme, Swordfishtrombones (1983), Rain Dogs (1985) and Frank's Wild Years (1987). These LPs flew the face of musical convention, featuring an eclectic mix of exotic musical styles, many of which had seldom before been used in the idiom of pop music. While an undeniable genius in the studio, Waits' onstage persona, curious charm and dry rhetoric have earned him a reputation as one of the world's finest live performers. The recording featured here, the subject of a live FM radio broadcast, is one such example. Including a wide range of tunes from right across the great man's career, this two disc set will prove a welcome addition to the collections of Tom Waits fans everywhere."
