Tom Waits: Swordfishtrombones

His record label considered this album much stranger than his previous albums so they dropped Tom Waits and he took his work elsewhere. Island Records signed him and released the album in 1983 to a warm reception from fans and critics. Known for the varieties of percussion and horn experimentation, “Swordfishtrombones” was the genesis of Waits’ signature sound.
