Yay! Next to Zevon Waits is probably my favorite American singer-songwriter (sadly Townes Van Zandt and Gram Parsons aren't included because there's not enough material to compare..) but this is interesting because he's got his "Closing Time" voice for a lot of this. "Raindogs" would establish that voice a few years later but he's a regular crooner here, but most of "SFT" had the same rasp. In either case I love this.

I don't think he sounds like Closing Time for either song.

There's a phase or two in his career in between Closing Time and Rain Dogs. On The Nickel is different vocally and lyrically from anything on his first 2-3 albums.

Yeah you're right. I was thinking "Franks Wild Years" was from the album of the same name. Totally forgot it was on Swordfishtrombones so my chronology is a little bit fucked.

That's always been an amusing phenomenon: musician has song titled the same as an album, but the song isn't on the album. Costello: Almost Blue is another example.

He keeps some of that old voice in this live performance, but Swordfish Trombones really was where he embraced his inner Cookie Monster.

These two contrasting songs, and the interview would be a good Tom Waits primer.

Whoever you are, Tom Waits is cooler than you.
