California’s own celebrated blues troubadour rolled into Mediasound Studios on a cold December night for a radio interview with host Vin Scelsa, accompanied only by Elektra records’ rep Ralph Ebler. What transpired was an intimate session boasting material from Waits’ already burgeoning repertoire. Waits’ noteworthy recordings made at Mediasound on the 14th December 1976 were aired on the 18th by KNEW-FM on Scelsa’s show, Idiot’s Delight. Waits’ trademark “growl” was very much in evidence in the charged and more cynical atmosphere of his album Small Change, released just prior to this session. Klondike marks this landmark point in Waits’ career with the KHEW-FM broadcast presented here in its entirety.
