CELEBRATE THE CLASSIC ASYLUM YEARS ON VINYL

After signing with Asylum Records in the early 70's, Tom Waits recorded a series of groundbreaking albums whose noir tales of the after-midnight underworld transformed the seedy into the sublime in songs laced with both dark humor and profound longing. Nearly 40 years and several musical evolutions later, Waits' Asylum years still hold a special place in the hearts of many.

Rhino will celebrate Waits this December by reissuing the Grammy-winning/Oscar nominated artists' first four Asylum albums on 180-gram heavy vinyl each packaged with their original artwork. Released on December 21 at retail outlets, including www.rhino.com

Ahead of the general December 21 Rhino retail release, TomWaits.com is offering limited edition 180 gram red vinyl versions of Closing Time, The Heart of Saturday Night, Nighthawks at the Diner and Small Change. Those who pre-order by December 18 should have their packages arrive by December 24.

The red vinyl limited editions (only 1000 pressed of each title) will be available exclusively at www.tomwaitsstore.com and are available for pre-order now.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
