Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 357/500!
Rain Dogs is Tom Waits' ninth album, originally released in 1985. It is a loose concept album about the people who live on the streets of New York City, the so-called urban dispossessed. This album is generally considered the middle album of a trilogy that includes Swordfishtrombones and Franks Wild Years. On the album, Waits works together with both Marc Ribot and Keith Richards for the first time. Many times would follow including Waits' latest album Bad As Me.
Rain Dogs is praised for its broad spectrum of musical styles and genres, described by Rolling Stone as merging 'Kurt Weill, pre-rock integrity from old dirty blues and the elegiac melancholy of New Orleans funeral brass, into a singularly idiosyncratic American style'.
SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.
Housed in a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 1/2" hinged-lid box which includes inside a full color Mini Insert LP sleeve and booklet with English/Japanese lyrics. The obi surrounding the album replicates the one included in the Japanese first pressing LP.
