Hoochie Coochie Man

I frequently find myself reflecting on an artists work as maturing and mellowing with age. Like fine wine musical tastes get more refined and in my case at least lean towards the mellower melodic soothing sounds. That’s probably why I like Tom Wait‘s older stuff more than his performing arts of recent years. I never actually realized that my favorite songs are the title tracks to the albums but I can honestly say there is not one song I don’t love on each of these albums. So with that in mind here are my favorite three Tom Wait’s albums and a song from each.
From the 1974 Album The Heart of Saturday Night the title track (Lookin’ for) The Heart of Saturday Night.
From the 1978 album Blue Valentines album the title track Blue Valentines.
