Tom Waits - Big Time mp3 album

Big Time is the first conventional live album by American musician Tom Waits, featuring performances from two shows on Waits' 1987 tour. The album was released less than a year later on Island Records. While Big Time was the first released recording of public concert performances by Waits, it was not strictly his first live release: his 1975 Nighthawks at the Diner was a live performance before an audience that was conducted entirely within a recording studio.

The 18 tracks on the live Big Time are culled mostly from Tom Waits' trio of albums, Swordfishtrombones, Rain Dogs, and Franks Wild Years from the same period. With a previously unreleased track – "Falling Down – and Waits’ debut performance of "Strange Weather," written for Marianne Faithfull, this album puts all of Waits’ live brilliance on display. Missing is that core experience of a Tom Waits performance, the between-song banter, so much a centerpiece of the earlier live album Nighthawks at the Diner, and one he returns to in a big way on Glitter and Doom Live.

Big Time is an 18-track live album running nearly 68 minutes, its material drawn mostly from Tom Waits' trio of recent studio albums, Swordfishtrombones, Rain Dogs, and Franks Wild Years. One track, "Falling Down," is a previously unissued studio recording. The performance of "Strange Weather" marks Waits' first recording of a song he and his wife, Kathleen Brennan, wrote for Marianne Faithfull. Waits' performances tended to be somewhat over the top on the studio versions of these songs, but before a live audience his theatrics seem more appropriate, and he even includes a mini-set of piano ballads. Still, it takes him until the seventh tune, "Way Down in the Hole," to bring the audience to life, and he rarely speaks, in marked contrast to the earlier live-in-the-studio album Nighthawks at the Diner.
