Big Time (Tom Waits album)
Big Time is the first conventional live album by American musician Tom Waits, featuring performances from two shows on Waits' 1987 tour, regarded by many as "his best tour ever." The album was released less than a year later on Island Records. While Big Time was the first released recording of public concert performances by Waits, it was not strictly his first live release: his 1975 Nighthawks at the Diner was a live performance before an audience that was conducted entirely within a recording studio.
Famous quotes containing the word waits:
“Not necessity, not desireno, the love of power is the demon of mankind. Grant them everything, health, food, housing, entertainmentthey are and remain unhappy and anxious: for the demon waits and waits, and wants to be satisfied.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
