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.
