Tom Waits - 1975 - Nighthawks at the Diner


Cuando hay poco tiempo para chamuyos, mejor un disco que hable por sí solo.
El tercer disco del viejo Tom, grabado en vivo en un bar, con todo el clima de lo que eran sus performances en esa etapa.
Contiene canciones que ya son clásicos de la música y la poesía, como “Cerveza caliente y mujeres frías” “Big Joe y el fantasma 309” " Mejor sin esposa" o “Eggs and Sausage”.

Gran elección, maravilloso disco, uno de mis preferidos de siempre.
Y como sería obvia cualquier alabanza, sólo apuntar que la portada y el título son un homenaje al famosísimo cuadro "Nighthawks", del pintor estadounidense Edward Hopper.

Si no lo conocéis, os lo recomiendo fervientemente (al menos tan fervientemente como recomendaría el disco de Waits xD), aquí tenéis una breve biografía y algunas de sus obras:

Nighthawks at the Diner is a 1975 album by Tom Waits, released on Asylum Records. The title was inspired by Edward Hopper's 1942 painting Nighthawks. The album's working title had been "Nighthawk Postcards from Easy Street," but it was shortened to Nighthawks at the Diner. The album was recorded live in Record Plant Studios, in front of a small invited audience. This gives the record an intimate feeling as Waits spends time telling stories, jokes and explaining the stories behind his songs through seven separate introductions.
