Tom Waits Reissues | News

Good news on the Tom Waits Reissue front – I received this email a few days ago:

Tom Waits Vinyl Update Hey David,

It’s been almost two months since we finalized our customer returns with the folks at Rhino and we figured that you are probably sitting there wondering “well, that was nice of them, but it’s been a while…where are my records?”

So we would like to update that for you!  Tom has approved Small Change, Heart of Saturday Night and Closing Time acetates. Nighthawks is close to done.  We have also heard the acetates here and compared them to the original pressings, and we can unequivocally say that this is what the initial product should have been. This is what everyone expected when this project began over a year ago so your patience will be rewarded.

We will send you another email when test pressings have been approved and give you a finish line on when we can expect product to ship. But step one is almost done and from there, we will keep you updated throughout.

As always, if you need anything, don’t hesitate to contact us at or call at 323-244-4728.

Take care, and all the best-

General Manager
