180 Gram Vinyl! A Wildly Interesting Listen!

Scott Walker is an American-British singer-songwriter, composer and record producer. He is noted for his distinctive baritone voice and for the unorthodox career path which has taken him from 1960s pop icon to 21st century experimental musician.

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, only six months after Walker's third album with The Walker Brothers, Images. Its mixture of Walker's original compositions and selection of cover versions established Walker as a more serious and sombre artist; gone were the Beat group and Blue-eyed soul material of his former group.

Eschewing all Pop trends at the time, Walker stepped it up a notch, crooning with a nod to Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and chansonnier 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.

"Highlights include his exquisitely anguished rendition of Brel's classic 'Amsterdam' and his dramatic cover of the early-'60s Toni Fisher pop ballad 'The Big Hurt.'" - Richie Unterberger, allmusic.com
