This shopkeeper's favourite Waits record and quite frankly a ridiculous debut record, your first record isn't supposed to be as filled with such world-weary, heart-worn tales and barroom heartbreakers as 'Closing Time'.

LIMITED 50TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
DOUBLE LP PRESSING IN A DELUXE GATEFOLD JACKET

Closing Time foreshadows the distinctly lyrical storytelling and original blending of jazz, blues, and folk styles that would come to be associated with Waits.
It is on this debut album that Waits performs enduring classics of his career “Ol’ 55” (famously covered by the Eagles), the heartbreaking “Martha” and the gentle acoustic folk of “I Hope That I Don’t Fall In Love With You”.
Reissued for the first time as a double LP to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the landmark debut with newly half speed mastering at Abbey Road Studios.
