I don't know if there's any real bona fide Buick owners out there tonight. But my goodness, that's an automobile that I swear by. It's a car that's seriously as slick as deer guts on the door knob. Climb aboard one of those suckers, make you feel like a new man. And eh I always had these cars that I bought for like a hundred and twenty-five dollars. You sink 'bout thirty-five hundred into them, and you sell 'em for twelfe fifty or so.
I stuck to the Buick line for several years. I had two Specials, one was a kind of It was kind of monkey brown and eh It was a lot of chrome, kinda looked like a Wurlitzer jukebox. And I had two of those Specials, the other was kinda vomit yellow, it [? And I had a couple of Centuries, finally I had a Super. And then I finally picked up on this Roadmaster, and lucky to get it! So this is called 'My Ol' '55'. Tom Waits eGroups discussionlist, Live intro from Westchester, PA, : "Here's a real old song for you.
Actually, it's about the very first car I ever stole. You know I don't know, I still remain somehow a victim of circumcision, in the sense that I have a tendency to be cursed with terminal car trouble.
And I don't expect it to let up at all. I never paid more than a hundred and twenty-five dollars for a car. And I ain't about to change now. But I would like to have maybe a Chevrolet station wagon, and sand it down and primer the thing. Yeah Where did you see me in a station wagon? Yeah, I was in a station wagon once. Yeah, I was something, something out the window You were the one, yeah! I'd like to have a big round of applause for my brother-in-law right there.
Phil's been out of prison now for a couple of years, but No, they ain't caught me yet! Yeah, I know, that child molesting charge really got you, didn't it? I mean after a second offense and everything, it's kinda hard to say, but No, lucky first time!
Well, this is eh Live intro from Storyteller show, recorded April 1, in Los Angeles : "This is a song about an automobile. Closing Time was released by Asylum on March 6, The single featured the same song pressed on both sides of the record, with the A-side in mono and the B-side in stereo. Waits' first national tour coincided with the album's release and ran from April to June The band consisted of Waits on vocals, acoustic guitar, and piano, Bob Webb on double bass, Rich Phelps on trumpet, and John Forsha on guitar.
This tour consisted of Waits on vocals, acoustic guitar, and piano, with Bob Webb on double bass. After its release, Closing Time was received positively by the American music press, although coverage was limited.
In Rolling Stone , critic Stephen Holden praised it as "a remarkable debut album" and branded Waits as "a boozier, earthier version" of Randy Newman who similarly "delights in rummaging through the attics of nostalgia". Waits exploits an honest sentimentality which he undercuts just enough to be credible". The album received little coverage internationally, with its promotion in the UK being little more than a featured advert in the NME. William Ruhlmann, in a retrospective AllMusic review, holds the album in high regard, describing Waits' "lovelorn lyrics" as being "sentimental without being penetrating", while also noting Waits' "gift for gently rolling pop melodies" and "self-conscious melancholy", the latter of which "can be surprisingly moving".
Closing Time reached a wider audience through cover versions of its songs by more successful artists and have since continued to have been covered. Later in , Tim Buckley released the album Sefronia , with a cover of "Martha,"  the first ever cover of a Waits song by a known artist.
