My first exhibition was staged at the Lehmitz. Three hundred and fifty pictures. Kurt the barman and me had agreed that if people recognized themselves in the pictures, they could keep them.

I just feel that this album deserves to be reviewed in full. Tom Waits Rain Dogs 5. Released: Rolling Stone Album Tom Waits is one of those voices in music that are instantly identifiable. His raspy vocals are almost painful at times, and his albums are not for the faint of heart.
If you are in the mood for a soft, sensual pop album, you are in the wrong thread. Waits' grew up in Southern California, and was discovered and signed by Frank Zappa manager Herb Cohen in the early 70s.
Waits' 70s material consisted of lyrics depicting a desperate, lowlife lifestyle, and his real life persona very much mirrored his music. Waits' formal debut came in with his release of Closing Time which contained the song "Ol' 55", a song later covered by the Eagles. Over the next several years, he released new material just about every year with s The Heart of Saturday Night , s live album and one of my favorites Nighthawks at the Diner , s Small Change , s Foreign Affairs , s Blue Valentine , and s Heartattack and Vine.
By the late 70s and early 80s, Waits' had built up a pretty significant catalogue of music. In the late 70s, Waits launched a parallel career as an actor and composer of film music. In Waits released his first full album in 3 years with Swordfishtrombones , and he had found a new style of music, implementing horns and percussion to go along with an unusual recording technique. The same year he appeared in several films, including Coppola's The Outsiders.
Rain Dogs was released in , and continued the style that started with Swordfishtrombones. Since Rain Dogs Waits has appeared in many movies, and has released 10 more albums including film scores. His most recent release is s Real Gone. On the album Rain Dogs , Waits incorporates a wide range of sounds including marimba, accordion, and various other percussions that are not usually heard in popular music.

This album is not near as focused as his previous albums, and it is that artistic freedom that allows this to shine.
