Tom Waits: Thursday Afternoon, Sober as a Judge

Jeff Walker, Music World, June 1973

IT IS SOMETIMES extremely difficult to separate an artist from the trend he's involved in; even if there's only a single element that makes him a part of that trend. Tom Waits falls victim to that dilemma two counts. He is a singer-songwriter, and he records for Asylum Records i.e. David Geffen and Elliot Roberts.
