Franks Wild Years is the ninth studio album by Tom Waits, released 1987 on Island Records. Subtitled Un Operachi Romantico in Two Acts, the album contains songs written by Waits and collaborators mainly his wife, Kathleen Brennan for a play of the same name. Tom Waits wrote a song called Frank's Wild Years for his 1983 Swordfishtrombones album, then used the title minus its apostrophe for a musical play he wrote with his wife, Kathleen Brennan, and toured with in 1986. The Franks Wild Years album, drawn from the show, is subtitled, un operachi romantico in two acts, though the songs themselves do not carry the plot.

Подзаголовок Un Operachi Romantico in Two Acts подчёркивает, что альбом задуман как пьеса о неком Фрэнке ОБраене. Пьеса Тома проходила в 1986 году в Чикаго, при поддержке компании Steppenwolf Theatre Company. Tom Waits: все альбомы, включая Gettin' Drunk On the Bottle , Circus , The Complete Kfpk Folkscene Broadcasts и другие. And this album, subbilled as Un Operachi Romantico in Two Acts and comprising songs drawn from Waitss stage play of the same name co-written by his wife, Kathleen Brennan, pretty well summarizes his world view. This rags-to-rags tale completes the trilogy that began with 1983s Swordfishtrombones featuring the song Franks Wild Years, in which the protagonist torches his suburban SoCal house and heads north on the Hollywood Freeway. But Franks Wild Years works both as an effective teaser for Waitss stage play and on its own downwardly mobile terms. Popular on Rolling Stone. In This Article: Tom Waits. Want more Rolling Stone
