Back in the day...

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album consists of demo songs, some of which have never previously seen the light of day, taken from Tom Waits's early years (duh), before he become the musical genius that he's considered today. Granted, these songs are all well-written and performed; yet they lack something of the latter work. Nevermind, though; THE EARLY YEARS, VOLUME 1 serves as a good introduction to the pre-SWORDFISHTROMBONES years of Waits career, and is also a fine addition to already-exististing Waits collections. The sparse arrangements offer a sense of intimacy; some of the recordings, such as "Little Trip to Heaven," are even better than the versions that made the record."
Very pleased

"Ha! this is some singing. I discovered Tom Waits only accidentally. It happened so that I wanted to know the man who created "tom traubert's blues" after listning to Rod Stewart's version. I am no pop/slow rock fan and knew that the creator was no pop/slow rock artist either but more deeply rooted with a close reach to vintage folk and blues as I fell in love with the melody instantly.How can I describe his voice and singing? A cross between Dylan and Cohen.Perhaps early Dylan and early Cohen to put it absolutely right. This guy to me is something so special and his piano & guitar playing just right. He fills my ears and makes me think..... yes, mostly about the years gone by,"
