Tom Waits had one of the wildest trajectories of any rock artist in the 1970s-or possibly ever. A regular presence in San Diego’s coffeehouse folk scene in the late 1960s, he was living out of his car when Herb Cohen, the manager for the Mothers of Invention and Linda Ronstadt, discovered him and helped to secure a record deal with the fledgling Asylum Records. David Geffen and Elliot Roberts had just opened the label in 1971, but already it was a home to some of Southern California’s finest singer-songwriters, including Jackson Browne, Judee Sill, Joni Mitchell, and Neil Young.

Foreign Affairs is the fourth studio album by Tom Waits, released in 1977 on Elektra Entertainment. It was produced by Bones Howe, and featured Bette Midler singing a duet with Waits on "I Never Talk to Strangers". Bones Howe, the album's producer, remembers the album's original concept and production approach thus: talked to me about doing this other material He said, "I'm going to do the demos first, and then I'm gonna let you listen to them

Small Change (Tom Waits album). Small Change is the third studio album by Tom Waits, released in 1976 on Asylum Records. It was recorded in July 1976. Small Change was recorded, direct to 2-track stereo tape, July 15, 19–21 and 29, 1976 at the Wally Heider Recording Studio, in Hollywood, USA under the production of Bones Howe.

Tom Waits will never be a touring artist, that is just sadly something that his fans will have to come terms with - a truth especially bitter for residents of Waits-starved Britain such as myself and my co-host here at 'Down in the Hole'. The song was one of Waits’ very first and in this early recording he shows that he is already getting the best out of it through years of refining amidst performance. The whole set is interesting because it shows you how Tom, without the context of a single performance, has a real loose relationship with the official lyrics and also has a pool of jokes and phrases that he will go back to ala pull on your coat about. 9. ‘Ol’ 55′ (VH1 Storytellers, 1999). Waits earliest hit and debut album opener ‘Ol ‘55’ is sung here 26 years on by a man unrecognisable from the ‘old Tom Frost’ of Closing Time.

TOM WAITS is a jazz related improv/composition, jazz related rock, jazz related soundtracks jazz related pop/art song/folk music artist. In the 1970s, Tom Waits combined a lyrical focus on desperate, low-life characters with a persona that seemed to embody the same lifestyle, which he sang about in a raspy, gravelly voice. From the '80s on, his work became increasingly theatrical as he moved into acting and composing.
