The 1973 album that introduced a young singer-songwriter to the world at large is a far cry from the wonderfully twisted sonic landscape that would define "Swordfishtrombones" a decade later. The Waits of "Closing Time" was a barroom balladeer too, but one who fit neatly into the early-'70s folk-rock, singer-songwriter paradigm ("Closing Time's opener "Ol' '55," in fact, was covered by the Eagles on their first album). The arrangements here are straightforward, piano-based affairs that present the songs with a minimum of fuss.
