TOM WAITS-ON THE SCENE '73 KPFK FOLK SCENE BROADCAST-NEW 2LP
TOM WAITS-ON THE SCENE '73 KPFK FOLK SCENE BROADCAST-NEW 2LP

Live 1973


Previously unreleased live broadcast of intimate Tom Waits performance featuring incredible rarities - plus interviews with the man
himself.

Securing his first proper record deal with David Geffen's Asylum label in 1972, Tom Waits would go on to release seven records with
the label in as many years.
The first of these, Closing Time, was released in March 73 and comprised the most unique collection of original compositions that
American critics and consumers had witnessed since the 1960s heyday of Beatles, Beach Boys and Bob Dylan.
Informed by the wordsmiths of the beat generation, the blues howlers of a former age, the smooth jazz vocals of Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett,
and the country flavoured ballads that Ray Charles had turned to in the early 1960s, Waits developed a cult following with his portrayals
of modern American domesticity and love sought and lost.
On the 12th August 1973 Waits was to be found performing an in-house set for the renowned L.A. radio series Folk Scene, broadcast
weekly by KPFK FM, Tom's performances were augmented with interviews that provide a fascinating insight into his career at this time. Included too on this LP are five additional tracks from a performance
Tom made in Santa Monica a few months later on 10th November 1973.
Also the subject of an FM broadcast, two further cuts from The Heart of Saturday Night are complimented by a triumvirate of Waits
rarities that have seldom been heard before or since.
