This is the Waits album I heard first it also my favorite of his albums (well this and Bone Machine). This album is where Tom found his voice. Both singing and writing wise. The ballads on this album are up there with the best piano men songs in history. It also has some great qwirkie tracks like Step Right Up. That's the best thing about this CD is it plays great as a whole or you can program just the ballads and you have one of the greatest late night albums in history.
As for the remastered version from Japan go's it is a great improvement over the current domestic version. Which has never been remastered. The vocals are more upfront and the bass is much warmer.actually it improves everything across the board. Could not be happier with this purchase!

Hmm... from the opening stretches of piano & strings in "Tom Trauberts Blues" to the wrap-up of "I Can't Wait to Get Off Work" this cd is a masterful example of musical storytelling. The character meeting his demise in the title song, the man flipping his quarter while leaning on his lampost, the drunken piano man blaming everyone else, just gorgeous. I believe that this album came out the month I was born as well.

On this album Tom takes the listener to the same place "Notes from the Underground" takes the reader. It's a real world that daylight doesn't penetrate and heartbroken loners like Mr. Waits portrays wander the darkened streets alone. Anyone with a broken heart can relate to "Tom Taubert's Blues" and enjoy the fact that misery loves company and the singer is sharing a bench with you. In other words, this ain't no party cd. This is for listening and learning about another way of life.

Another superb offering from the poet laureate of Skid Row. This album from the bluesy vagrant phase of Waits's career features more brilliant storytelling ("Small Change"), hilarious wordplay ("Step Right Up"), and heartbreaking ballads ("Invitation to the Blues") from one of American music's most distinctive voices--both literally and thematically. Highly recommended.

I first heard this album when it came out in 1977 and listened to it until the grooves turned white. 26 years later, I bought the CD, more out of curiosity and respect for Waits' genius than a burning need to own. Man oh man, was I wrong ... the album still holds up and sounds fresh after a quarter century. No one can wallow in moon-in-the-gutter imagery better than Waits, and rather than play it as a cartoon, you know that for Tom it's genuine and the emotions are as raw as that phlegmatic voice. The term "masterpiece" is used too often and hence is in danger of meaning nothing, but this album restores its definition. Buy it if you're looking for something different, for that time when Waits was still within reach of most of us. [I highly recommend "Blue Valentine" as well.]

Tom Waits is a great American poet, a genius who has created an entire lyric world where somehow wasted life is full of value. For Marcel Proust to find meaning in the rich atmospheres of his priveleged childhood... where's the talent in that? But for a writer to find deep, plaintive meaning in a life spent loitering by a cigarette machine at a dog track... There is a Catholic saint who is reported to have defiled himself in dissolution in sympathy with all the wretches of the world, saying he would not be saved if there was one sinner who was lost.

I started my Tom Waits collection late in life - I picked up "Alice" when it came out. Until then, I was only vaguely familiar with his work. Listening to "Alice" I became hooked and started picking up other CDs.
I bought "Small Change" for "Waltzing Matilda" - a song I'd always loved. I can't take it off the CD player now. The whole thing is perfect - and it's hard for me to call any collection of music perfect. It's Tom from back in his 'romantic vaudeville' days, when his songs were all about love and loss and everyday junk. Later, he turned to the more carnival macabre feel - which is every bit as fantastic, but if you want essential Waits, this is the CD to get. Get this and the soundtrack to "One From the Heart."
Beautiful, beautiful stuff.

Loved my first Tom Waits album "The Heart of Saturday Night" for its jazzed-up late-night-ramblings feel to it. This was before owning "Small Change," however, and here the ante is upped and Waits delves even deeper into the heart of the diners and back alleys of urban America.
All my favorite songs on this album are a testament to Waits's tremendous versatility. There is the silvertongue scat "Step Right Up..." the jazz dive "The One that Got Away..." the atmospheric "Small Change..." the weep-into-your-beer "Invitation to the Blues." "Invitation" and "Tom Traubert's Blues" (Waltzing Mathilda) are accompanied by heartbreaking strings and piano. The sax and string bass on some of the more jazzed-up tracks are pretty tight.
BTW I completely agree with the reviewer below that "I Can't Wait to Get off Work" would have been better middle-album filler, its slot as the final track of the album is somewhat bewildering. Of all the songs of the album that he could have ended on, this one is mediocre at best. The title track would have been the better choice - he used this to close a live performance on "Austin City Limits" in the late 70s and it was incredible. I'm insanely jealous of anyone who managed to be in the audience that night. For the rest of us, PBS still sometimes airs the reruns, so try and catch it sometime - really is something to see and as far as I know, no recordings of it are commercially available.
