This is the soundtrack from the Francis Ford Coppola film. Everything was filmed indoors with lots of Las Vegas style lighting of outsized visual props. (At one point we see Nastassja Kinski playing an olive in a giant martini glass.) Terri Garr and Frederic Forrest play the struggling lovers.
The songs by Tom Waits are perfect and Cystal Gale's pitch precise singing answers Waits' grumpy growl to sublime effect. Check out The Wages of Love from the opening medley.
