One from the Heart was a soundtrack album of Tom Waits compositions for the Francis Ford Coppola movie of the same name, One from the Heart. It was recorded from October 1980 to September 1981, and released in 1982. It was during this period that Waits met his wife Kathleen Brennan, an employee at the studio where it was recorded.
Crystal Gayle features prominently on the record, performing either solo vocal or singing in duet with Waits on many of the songs. The soundtrack was nominated for an Academy Award for Original Music Score.
The movie was re-released on DVD on January 27, 2004, and the DVD contains remixed and remastered Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound of the soundtrack from Waits' original studio sessions, a documentary on the making of the soundtrack, as well as previously unreleased demo recordings and alternate takes.
