About this deal

Therefore none of the rock star posturing of his peers, because there's just a touch of silliness and absurdity to it all, no matter how genuinely heartfelt.He points out the arbitrary nature of the arrangements by repeating 'Straight to the Top,' done as a demented rhumba in act one, as a Vegas-style Frank Sinatra swing tune in act two. Steppenwolf's head was actor Gary Sinise (who would later win an Oscar nomination for his supporting role in Forrest Gump and turn in strong performances in Apollo 13, Mission to Mars, Ransom, and Of Mice and Men). Rather, this is just the third instalment in Waits' eccentric series of Island Records albums in which he seems most inspired by German art song and carnival music, presenting songs in spare, stripped-down arrangements consisting of instruments like marimba, baritone horn, and pump organ and singing in a strained voice that has been artificially compressed and distorted. In 1980 Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre Company had staged Lanford Wilson's Balm in Gilead (directed by John Malkovich). even though the master itself is good, the pressing itself is poor and comes with a significant level of distortion.

Newly remastered for the first time ever from the original ½” flat master tape and personally overseen by Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan. I was recently overtaken by an urge to listen to "Innocent When You Dream", which to me was the outstanding track on the album.Vinyl mastering is exemplary, given the fact that there is almost an hour of music packed in just 1LP.
