1983 Tom Waits ‎'Swordfishtrombones' Cassette

Size

Nice cassette copy of Tom Waits' eighth studio album, the abstract experimental masterpiece 'Swordfishtrombones', released on Island Records in 1983

The first of the loose 'trilogy' that also includes 'Rain Dogs' and 'Franks Wild Years' and a real departure from the sound of previous albums. It's an eccentric, challenging and hugely rewarding listen, full of unusual instrumentation and odd time signatures. Iconic sleeve art by Michael A. Russ - a TinTone photograph which shows Waits with actors Angelo Rossito and Lee Kolima
