The Heart of Saturday Night, 1974

The Heart of Saturday Night
By the time Waits made his second album, he'd fully developed his talent for growling, jazzy beatnik gutter tales, and largely dispensed with the love songs. He does it best on "Diamonds on My Windshield" and "The Ghosts of Saturday Night (After Hours at Napoleone's Pizza House)." -The Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time
