“Heartat­tack and Vine (2018 vinyl re­mas­ter)” ANTI

Septem­ber 14. Re­leased in 1980, Heartat­tack and Vine was Waits’ fi­nal al­bum on Elek­tra Asy­lum and it built on the raw blues ap­proach of Blue Valen­tine with the in­cen­di­ary ti­tle track, the funky, or­gan driven “Down­town” and the stomp­ing NOLA blues of “Mr. Sie­gal”. This al­bum also con­tains some of Waits most pop­u­lar bal­lads, in­clud­ing “Jersey Girl” which was fa­mously a hit for Bruce Spring­steen.
