Scott Walker/Jacques BrelScott Walker Meets Jacques Brel ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
A really great collection of work – one that shows the strong influence of Belgian songwriting genius on the music of Scott Walker! Scott emerged from the poppy Walker Brothers with a series of albums in the late 60s – records that are now well-respected classics that showed a much deeper side of the singer – one built partly from his own great compositions, but also from some musical contributions from Brel! This package begins with nine Scot Walker interpretations of Brel tunes – pulled from the albums Scott, Scott 2, and Scott 3 – with translations in the Mort Schuman mid 60s mode – a bit clunky, but perfect for Scott's baroque presentation of the material – especially as the tunes chosen are some of the spookier ones in Brel's collection of work. Scott Walker titles include "My Death", "Sons Of", "Funeral Tango", "Next", "The Girls & The Dogs", "If You Go Away", "Mathilde", "Amsterdam", and "Jackie". Then, the CD follows with Brel's own versions of the tunes, in French – which makes for a really wonderful comparison of modes – at a level that's followed up even more strongly in the notes within. Jacques Brel titles include "Tango Funebre", "Le Chanson De Jacky", "Au Suivant", "Les Filles Et Les Chiens", "Seul", "Ne Me Quitte Pas", "Mathilda", "La Mort", "Amsterdam", and "Fils De". CD

✨✧ Scott WalkerTil The Band Comes In ... LP
Philips (UK), 1970. Very Good ... $99.99
Scott Walker's fifth solo album, and an oft-overlooked gem that really shows some new sides of his talents! The style here is a bit less iconic than that of the previous two records – more personal or sentimental at times, yet still served up with that uncannily observant sensibility that Scott inherited from Jacques Brel. Walker's voice is wonderfully fluid – still as dark as before, but with a slightly jazzy sensibility at times – no doubt picked up from his tours at the time in the UK as a small club vocalist. The album features a surprising guest appearance from Esther Ofarim, who sings solo on the track "Long About Now" – an odd arrangement that came about because Scott and her shared the same manager, Ady Semel, who also was sort of the director for the album. Titles include "Little Things", "Joe", "Thanks For Chicago Mr James", "Til The Band Comes In", "Cowbells Shakin", "The War Is Over", and "Jean The Machine". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Scott WalkerScott 3 ... CD
Fontana (UK), 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the greatest moment ever from the legendary Scott Walker – a set that strongly steps beyond even the genius of his first two solo albums, thanks to an amazing assortment of original tunes! Scott's dark vision of masculinity is emerging full-blown here – in an array of imagistic songs that piece together a very different picture of the male voice in music at the end of the 60s. Arrangements are quite large – echoing Scott's love of Jacques Brel and Jack Jones – but they've got a very subdued quality too, one that always takes second seat to Walker's incredibly haunting voice – rich, yet unquestionably fragile at the same time. Titles include "Copenhagen", "Winter Night", "30 Century Man", "It's Raining Today", "Two Ragged Soldiers" and "Big Louise". CD
