episode 2: Poncho's Lament, The Early Years vol 1, Tom Waits [230]


A second week with Amy and Helen sees everyone feeling that the work is slighter and possibly understanding why this track didn't make the jump onto a studio recording. Our guests discuss with Martin and Sam ideas of cliche and originality, the...

episode 3: I'm Your Late Night Evening Prostitute, The Early Years vol 1, Tom Waits [231]


Is this a tender song, a wry observation about the music industry, or a badly-placed bit of bawdy humour? Helen & Amy rejoin Martin & Sam to listen to a Tom Waits track that may have killed at the Troubadour, but does not seem to land on the...

episode 4: Had Me A Girl, The Early Years vol 1, Tom Waits [232]

episode 7: Virginia Avenue, The Early Years vol 1, Tom Waits [235]


Guest host Michael Caines joins Martin & Sam for another early version of a Closing Time track, as Waits wanders through Hollywood (or San Diego?) (or Reno?!?) slightly the worse for wear, as Song by Song has a think about how artists reinterpret...

episode 8: Midnight Lullaby, The Early Years vol 1, Tom Waits [236]


A sleepy week sees Michael, Sam & Martin brushing their teeth, getting in their pyjamas and heading off to bed. All three of us are struck by the strength of this Early Years version/demo, particularly the arrangement, and how it compares to other...
