5.0 out of 5 stars waits+gayle, an oldie but a goodie
a wonderful soundtrack for a forgotten film, jazzy, upbeat, downbeat, haunting and unforgettable. this is vintage waits, and gayle adds a touch of class with her silky vocals, an excellent collaboration. anyone with an ounce of romance in their soul and an ear for originality ought to listen to this. the film is pretty good too, if you can find it which i cant.

5.0 out of 5 stars The last album of it's kind, musically, he ever did., 8 Jan. 2006
This review is from: One from the Heart (Audio CD)
Apparently, Francis Ford Coppala asked Tom to do this album after Tom had already decided to shift his sound to that Swordfishtrombones/Frank's Wild Years sort of organy, New Orleans, jangly sound of the 80's that Tom favored. Tom apparently obliged and, with Crystal Gale doing duets with him on most of the songs, created his last 70's sounding record in, what? 1981.
Have you seen this movie? The soundtrack is more prominent, louder, than in almost any other movie. It almost has the function of a musical narrator, telling the journey of the story. This soundtrack definitely stands alone without the movie while it is also very enjoyable to hear it used so much throughout the movie.
Just cuz this is 25 years old doesn't mean it don't swing. If you're a fan of Tom's 70's material, and, for me, it's his finest period, you gotta have this album. Smokey piano lounge music with nighttime, love hurtin' lyrics that Tom is so good at.
