The album, which includes appearances by guitarists Keith Richards and Marc Ribotis noted for its broad spectrum of musical styles and genres, described by Rolling Stone as merging " Kurt Weillpre-rock integrity from old dirty blues[and] the elegiac melancholy of New Orleans funeral brass, into a singularly idiosyncratic ABBA - Head Over Heels style.
Init was ranked number 21 on the Rolling Stone list of the " greatest albums of the s. Waits wrote the majority of the album in a two-month stint in the fall of in a basement room at the corner of Washington and Horatio Streets in Manhattan.
According to Waits, it was, "kind of a rough area, Lower Manhattan between Canal and 14th Street, just about a block from the river It was a good place for me to work. Very quiet, except for the water coming through the pipes every now and then. Sort of like being in a vault. In preparation for the album, Waits recorded street sounds and other ambient noises on a cassette recorder in order to get the sound of the city that would be the album's subject matter.
A wide range of instruments was employed to achieve the album's sound, including marimbaaccordiondouble basstromboneand banjo. The album is notable for its organic sound, and the natural means by which it was achieved. Waits, discussing his mistrust of then fashionable studio techniques, said, "If I want a sound, I usually feel better if I've chased it and killed it, skinned it and cooked it. Most things you can get with a button nowadays.
So if I was trying for a certain drum sound, my engineer would say, 'Oh, for Christ's sake, why are we wasting our time? Let's just hit this little cup with a stick here, sample something take a drum sound from another record and make it bigger in the mix, don't worry about it.
Waits also stated that "if we couldn't get the right sound out of the drum set we'd get a chest The Decision - Stockholm Jazz Orchestra* & Jim McNeely - Jigsaw drawers in the bathroom and bang it real hard with a two-by-four," such that "the sounds become your own.
Rain Dogs was the first time that Waits worked with guitarist Marc Ribot who was impressed by Waits' unusual studio presence. Ribot said, " Rain Dogs was my first major label type recording, and I thought everybody made records the Various - Soul Party V.
1 Tom Stereovision - The Lotus Eaters - Silentspace records. I've learned since that it's a very Seu Olhar - Luni - Luni and individual way of producing. As producer apart from himself as writer and singer and guitar player he brings in his ideas, but he's very open to sounds that suddenly and accidentally occur in the studio.
I remember one verbal instruction being, 'Play it like a midget's bar mitzvah. It wasn't a mechanical kind of recording at all. He has a very individual guitar style he sort of slaps the strings with his thumb He let me do what I heard, there was a lot of freedom.
If it wasn't going in a direction he liked, he'd make suggestions. But there's damn few ideas I've had which haven't happened on the first or second take. I picked out a couple of songs that I thought he would understand and he did.
He's got a great voice and he's just a great spirit in the studio. He's very spontaneous, he moves like some kind Blind Love - Tom Waits - Rain Dogs animal. I was trying to explain 'Big Black Mariah' and finally I started to move in a certain way and he said, 'Oh, why didn't you do that to begin with?
Now Blind Love - Tom Waits - Rain Dogs know what you're talking about. According to Barney Hoskynsthe album's general theme of "the urban dispossessed" was inspired in part by Martin Bell 's documentary Streetwiseto which Waits had been asked to contribute music.
