Digitally remastered edition. The Heart of Saturday Night is the second studio album by singer and songwriter Tom Waits, originally released in 1974 on Asylum Records.
The title song was written as a tribute to Jack Kerouac. Tom Waits is a critically acclaimed singer-songwriter, musician, composer and actor. His deep distinctive gravelly voice was described by critic Daniel Durchholz as sounding as though "it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car".
Waits has built up a distinctive musical persona with his trademark growl, his incorporation of pre-rock music styles such as blues, jazz, and vaudeville, and experimental tendencies verging on industrial music.
