Tom Waits - Rain Dogs (1985)
One of my personal favorites. This album contains many of Tom Waits' best songs and features really superb arrangements. He has a unique and distinct style and has something for everyone. You'll want to read his lyrics like a book. Pop in this one and open up a bottle of bourbon.
"Waits employs a crack back up band, with significant guess appearances with performers like Keith Richards. The star back up musician is, however, Marc Ribot, who as he so often does provides stunningly original guitar lines that embellish every song upon which he appears."
They say if you get far enough away You'll be on your way back home
