Foreign Affairs is possibly Waits’ most consistently “Chandlerianâ€? album, a series of vignettes from “dimestore novelsâ€? and “penny arcadesâ€? that could all take place in the same seedy block of skid row Los Angeles (or New York, in the case of “Potter’s Fieldâ€?). Features Waits’ duet with Bette Midler on the singles-bar dialogue “I Never Talk to Strangers” and his take on his Beat predecessors Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassidy on “Jack & Neal.”
