Part-rocker, part-crooner – and one of the greatest vocalists of all time! Scott Walker's one of those artists that defies description – worthy of his own "Walker-esque" description, one that you'll be easily skilled to deliver after hearing this sublime set! The CD features 18 tracks from Walker's solo albums of the late 60s, plus a few rare singles – all recorded in a heady style that was kind of an amalgam of Jacques Brel, Jack Jones, Jerry Butler, and Phil Spector all rolled into one! Walker started out as a moody teen pop singer, but by the time of these recordings he'd also developed into one heck of a songwriter, and begun exploring the deeper themes of pain, loss, and loneliness that were creeping into 60s pop through the work of Brel, Bacharach, and others. The set list is a great introduction to Walker's work, and features some of his best-remembered tunes, plus a few rarer tracks – titles that include "The Rope & The Colt", "Jackie", "The Lights Of Cincinnati", "My Death", "Windows Of The World", "Amsterdam", "The Amorous Humphrey Plugg", "Copenhagen", "Duchess
", "Montague Terrace", and "Any Day Now".
