Closing Time

Vinyl LP

Closing Time is the debut record of Tom Waits and it foreshadows the distinctly lyrical storytelling and original blending of jazz, blues and folk styles that would come to be associated with the artist.

Waits performs enduring classics of his career such as Ol’ 55 (covered by the Eagles), the heartbreaking Martha, and the gentle acoustic folk of I Hope I Don’t Fall In Love With You.
