Product Type: VINYL LP

180 gram audiophile vinyl + Insert. No one could deny Scott Walker is an unpredictable artist. Once the lead singer for the Walker Brothers (famous for their string laden Sixties defining hits 'Make It Easy on Yourself' and 'The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore') he released his first solo album 'Scott' in 1967. Eschewing all pop trends at the time, Walker stepped it up a notch, crooning with a nod to Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Jacques Brel. A pretty bold move indeed, in a time when pop music sounded psychedelic, bare and up-tempo. His philosophical lyrics are accompanied by lavishly orchestrated tracks making 'Scott' a wildly interesting listen. His approach paid off: The album reached the Top 3 in Great Britain and was the first in a string of very successful solo albums. One of the songs on this album ('The Lady Came from Baltimore') was written by Tim Hardin, whose 'Bird on a Wire' is also released on Music on Vinyl.
