Tom Waits wrote a song called "Frank's Wild Years" for his Swordfishtrombones album, then used the title minus its apostrophe for a musical play he wrote with his wife, Kathleen Brennanand toured with in 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.
Rather, this is just the third installment in Waits ' eccentric series of Island Records albums in which he seems most inspired by German art song The Moon Got In My Eyes - Bing Crosby - Remember Me carnival music, presenting songs in spare, stripped-down arrangements consisting of instruments like marimba, baritone horn, and pump organ and singing in a strained voice that has been artificially compressed and distorted.
The songs themselves often are conventional romantic vignettes, or would be minus the oddities of instrumentation, arrangement, and performance. For example, "Innocent When You Dream," a song of disappointment in love and friendship, has a winning melody, but it is played in a seesaw arrangement of pump organ, bass, violin, and piano, and Waits sings it like an enraged drunk.
He points out the arbitrary nature of the arrangements by repeating "Straight to the Top," done as a demented rhumba in act one, as a Vegas-style Frank Sinatra swing tune in act two. The result on record may not be theatrical, exactly, but it certainly is affected.
