Vinyl LP pressing. After signing with Asylum Records in the early 1970s, Tom Waits recorded a series of acclaimed albums whose noir tales about the after-midnight underworld transformed the seedy into the sublime in songs laced with both dark humor and profound longing. Decades and several musical evolutions later, Waits'' Asylum years still hold a special place in the hearts of many fans. Waits'' first seven albums on Asylum have been remastered and will be re-released via Anti-Records. Released in 1980, Heartattack and Vine was Waits'' final album on Elektra Asylum and it built on the raw blues approach of Blue Valentine with the incendiary title track, the funky, organ driven \"Downtown\" and the stomping NOLA blues of \"Mr. Siegal.\" This album also contains some of Waits'' most popular ballads, including \"Jersey Girl\" which was famously a hit for Bruce Springsteen. \"On the Nickle\" is a moving song about the homeless people who lived on 5th street in downtown LA, and \"Ruby''s Arms\" is a beautiful song with a lovely Bach-like melody.
