    God, what an incredibly great album. Every song on it is a gem.

    I was in high school when 'The Heart of Saturday Night' came out; this was my first exposure to Tom Waits and I remember it dearly.

    50 years after they were written they are still singing his songs, thankfully.

    Thank you for posting this! I never knew that this song was this deep before. Tears are appropriate. I think that we now have entered into the time of Hard Rain. Are we lucky? Doesn't feel like it now.
