The mastering on this record is perfect for my ear. Tom is front and center and everything is perfectly balanced, crisp and full at the same time. I’ve wished for a reissue for many years, but I’m not sure how they could improve much on this version. One of my treasured belongings.

My copy is translucent purple vinyl with silver specks. I don't see this on Discogs so I am wondering if anyone else has this.

Does anyone else find that track B6 (Blind Love) jumps at the line "and I don't care if They miss me - I never remember their names" ?
Seems like a pressing fault

I seem to have a variant that matches the 1985 Greek pressing here https://www.discogs.com/Tom-Waits-Rain-Dogs/release/3303067 in terms of runout, but it's on the UK label. It also has the slight blemish just above the ear of the guy in the photo which I also only see on the Greek cover. I have no doubt this is a genuine copy, it's just not listed here. Anyone else have this?

Amazing how well this original pressing still holds up. A lot of love and care will take a record a long way. Pops are minimal, and in true 70s style, record is quiet and the range is truly analogue.

They’ve re-released the entire Monkees catalogue...isn’t it time for a new vinyl version of Raindogs?

Cet album est loin d'être Near Mint, il craque en permanence de façon assez dérangeante, il prévient les acheteurs pour la pochette mais pas pour le son... cet album n'est absolument pas Near Mint

Obviously a masterpiece. In the Swordfishtrombones trilogy, perhaps the most accessible with some of Waits' most iconic songs. Just a wonderful piece of music and composition. I'm not enough of a Tom Waits expert to say anything about Rain Dogs as unique in the trilogy, so I'll just say I think it is one album out of three resounding successes.

So why is this the most popular Tom Waits album? For starters, it cemented the trajectory of Tom Waits for the next 30 years (and beyond). It established a new way of orchestrating music that made deep call-backs to Wehrmacht Vaudevillian forms that made it immediately interesting while also wholly singular to Tom Waits. It was clearly a popular album and established a style that nobody but Waits could pull off ever. Is there any better example of an artist establishing a "signature sound" than Waits? This album is also best evidence that Tom Waits was the only artist from the early 1970s that actually got better... much, much better... in the 1980s, a decade where all '70s rockers sold their soul for cheesy production tricks and slick, vapid songs. And with all the strangeness - songs like Signapore, Big Black Mariah, Rain Dogs, and Downtown Train - are actually quite poppy, each in their own mutated way. (Hell, Rod Stewart covered Downtown Train, so that goes to show just how strong Waits' songcraft was.) It was an album that could have spawned an entirely new genre of music but ended up only being the domaine of one, and we're all perfectly okay with that. A groundbreaking album that predictably left us all with some turned-up mud in a forgotten field somewhere. And there's a man still dancing in that mud-hole today.
