Big Time is the first conventional live album by American musician Tom Waits, featuring performances from two shows on Waits' 1987 tour. The album was released less than a year later on Island Records. While Big Time was the first released recording of public concert performances by Waits, it was not strictly his first live release: his 1975 Nighthawks at the Diner was a live performance before an audience that was conducted entirely within a recording studio.

Though ‘Big Time’ is the obvious masterpiece example of Waits’ extraordinary live work, it made more sense (and more fun) to omit that show entirely for this list and to chronicle some of Tom’s performance that may have passed you by. For as charming and intriguing as he is on tape, Waits is often double that on stage, a master showman and performer who is never satisfied with his great songs and always seeking to shuffle and reinterpret them through age and experience. Waits earliest hit and debut album opener ‘Ol ‘55’ is sung here 26 years on by a man unrecognisable from the ‘old Tom Frost’ of Closing Time. There is just so much more character and clarity to this grizzled old man now. The song has a new found confidence that comes with years of performance and Tom seems to have truly found the core of what this song is truly about.

Big Time is an 18-track live album running nearly 68 minutes, its material drawn mostly from Tom Waits' trio of recent studio albums, Swordfishtrombones, Rain Dogs, and Franks Wild Years. One track, "Falling Down," is a previously unissued studio recording. The performance of "Strange Weather" marks Waits' first recording of a song he and his wife, Kathleen Brennan, wrote for Marianne Faithfull.
