A book of Tom Waits lyrics is a must have if you are a fan of his music. I do cherish this book and love Tom's words. The problem is this book gets a lot of lyrics wrong and in one case misses a whole verse in a song, Blue Skies. Too many mistakes for my taste.

A book of Tom Waits lyrics is a must have if you are a fan of his music. If you listen to the songs and read the book you'll see just how poorly to the details the publisher paid to Tom's words.

I enjoyed reading the lyrics of early Tom Waits. I adore Tom Waits’ early stuff, so it’s nice to have all the lyrics in one collection. He is truly a lyrical genius. Many may not appreciate his singing style but, when I hear him sing his songs, I hear him singing from down deep in his soul and that is the mark a truly great artist. To bare your soul is a great burden but he bares it well and you can see it in his lyrics. I highly recommend this book to any Tom Waits fan or to any serious student of the songwriting craft. However it’s riddled with spelling errors, hence the missing star.

Known for his growling vocals and for the distinct poetry of his lyrics, Tom Waits has amassed over the course of three decades a devoted cult following. The Early Years collects the lyrics-formative and classic-from the first ten albums of this true bard of hard living. A celebration of both his words and of the artist himself, this lyrical biography charts the course from Wait's emotional debut album, Closing Time (1977), to the experimental stirrings in Heartattack and Vine (1991) and One from the Heart (1992)

The Early Years: The Lyrics of Tom Waits (1971-1982) Waits Tom HarperCollins USA 9780061458002 : THE EARLY YEARS showcases the formative lyrics of Tom Waits, the bard of hard living, from hi. After beginning his career on the margins of the 1970s Los Angeles rock scene, Waits has spent the last thirty years carving out a place for himself among such greats as Bob Dylan and Neil Young. Like them, he is a chameleonic survivor who has achieved long-term success while retaining cult credibility and outsider mystique. But although his songs can seem deeply personal and somewhat autobiographical, fans still know very little about the man himself.

A book of Tom Waits lyrics is a must have if you are a fan of his music. I do cherish this book and love Tom's words. The problem is this book gets a lot of lyrics wrong and in one case misses a whole verse in a song, Blue Skies. Too many mistakes for my taste. If you listen to the songs and read the book you'll see just how poorly to the details the publisher paid to Tom's words. So I guess the is an insight, buy falls short of the true story.

... You'll love Tom Waits. They are many one-line gems in much of his lyrics. The compilation of lyrics from his albums are wonderful.

I think song lyrics in general
suffer from being read
without hearing the presentation
Waits is no exception to this rule
Buy it if you love his music
Skip it if you haven't heard it

I'm caught between the extant reviews. The key is to be old enough to have heard these songs, even if it's years since the experience. What great fun to find out what he really said in pieces like "Step Right Up" and "Pasties and a G String".
Those of us who've crossed the bar of a half-century will take "Martha" so much more to heart, now that our own Martha's are gone. We know the 'Heart of Saturday Night' - Saturday night back then - is still the best that could ever be. Pity the youngsters who never had the brilliance of a slow dance, who never had three or four too many but made it to work the next day and kept going because your 'baby' was waitin up for you. Get it, recall it, make up your own melodies when the memory's going fuzzy - it's all to the good.
I find some of the songs haunting. Tom has a great feel for a symbol that cuts deep. The song Broken Bicycles is especially good. Heartattack and Vine, etc. are classics for Tom Waits buffs. I found myself yearning for the music and atmosphere that Tom creates in his work. Nonetheless, the lyrics all on their own a worth reading.
