Truckin' further through Saturday Night's heart, Sam, Martin and Anna enter a tale of broken relationships on the roads of America. As Waits begins to speak about characters other than himself, the beginnings of a broader style of writing starts to make its presence felt.
Song by Song is Martin Zaltz Austwick and Sam Pay; two musicians listening to and discussing every single Tom Waits track in chronological order.
