Remastered version of his 1976 album
This is a BRAND NEW 180g LP reissue from ANTI. It is a nice thick repro of the original, cut from the original analog masters - with direct involvement from Waits and Katheen Brennan - on super limited edition colored vinyl!
Small Change was recorded, direct to 2-track stereo tape, from July 15 to July 20, 1976 at the Wally Heider Recording Studio, in Hollywood under the production of Bones Howe. The album featured famed drummer Shelly Manne, and was, like Waits' previous albums, heavily jazz-influenced, with a lyrical style that owed influence to Raymond Chandler and Charles Bukowski as well as a vocal delivery influenced by Louis Armstrong. The music for the most part consists of Waits' hoarse, rough voice, set against a backdrop of piano, upright bass, drums and saxophone.
