Un Operachi Romantico in Two Acts

I remember it like it was yesterday not 28 years ago, I was 17 and we had a teen dance club in the town where I grew up, they would play tunes (mostly good) and it was a place to hang and not get hassled. For some reason I won a contest and got my pick of some LP’s that the owner had in the back, I don’t remember what the other choices were but I chose ‘Franks Wild Years’ by Tom Waits…Tom blew my seventeen year old mine away that day, as he continues to do so 28 years on.
