Tom Waits - Swordfishtrombones (40th Anniversary Edition Remastered)
Available 22nd September 2023.
Discover classic Tom Waits with the reissue of 5 of his iconic albums from his Island years. Unforgettable music that has left a lasting mark on music history.
Swordfishtrombones is the first instalment in Waits' eccentric series of Island Records albums. In which, he seems largely inspired by German art song and carnival music; producing songs which themselves would be conventional romantic vignettes, if not for the oddities of instrumentation, arrangement, and performance that Waits adds to them.
