Tom Waits – Foreign Affairs
Tom Waits is an American singer, songwriter, musician, composer, and actor. His music is characterized by lyrics focusing on the underside of society, delivered in his distinctively deep, gravelly voice. During the 1970s, he worked primarily in jazz, but since the 1980s his music has reflected greater influence from blues, vaudeville, and experimental genres. Despite little commercial success domestically, Waits influenced many musicians and has captured an international cult following. In 2011, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and included in the 2015 Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time. Foreign Affairs is his fifth studio album, released on September 1977. It was produced by Bones Howe, and featured Bette Midler singing a duet with Waits on “I Never Talk to Strangers”. Pictured on the cover with Waits is a Native American woman named Marsheila Cockrell, who worked at the box office of The Troubadour in Los Angeles.
