AllMusic Review by

Recorded live in Cleveland for radio broadcast in 1977, A Small Affair in Ohio finds Tom Waits in the barfly crooner mode that defined his earlier material. Touring around the time of his Small Change and Foreign Affairs albums, the set list includes piano-fueled numbers from that era including "I Never Talk to Strangers," "Jitterbug Boy," and "Step Right Up."
