Released:
Label: Rhino/Elektra
Many people first heard Waits through the balmy Eagles rendition of "Ol' 55," which dominated charts a year after the original's release on Waits' 1973 debut-- a most unsuitable introduction imaginable considering his exigent career. Amongst the cocktail-hour woes of Closing Time, Waits flaunts his range with the country shanty "Old Shoes" and the bouncy swing of "Ice Cream Man," but heartbreakers like "I Hope That I Don't Fall in Love with You" and "Martha" evidence his career-long knack for writing evocative ballads.
