Scott Walker - Scott 3

Format: LP
Availability: In stock



Scott Walker's final British Top Ten album was the first to be dominated by his own songs. Among them, ‘We Came Through’ is a rare Brel-influenced gallop and ‘30th Century Man’ an equally rare mid-tempo acoustic strummer. But the majority glide through, sad and serene, such as ‘It’s Raining Today’, ’Two Weeks Since You’ve Gone’ and my all-time Scott fave, ‘Big Louise’, an especially poignant elegy to an ageing transvestite. It’s Scott’s personal favourite from this era too, he said: “The arrangement, melody, colouring – everything worked out exactly as I pictured it.” In this, he was fortunate to have Angela Morley (formerly Wally Stott), whose sublime orchestrations on Walker’s early solo albums – tapping classical periods from the 18th through to the 20th century, with interwoven ‘light entertainment’ MOR motifs – gave the singer the necessary mood enhancements to realise his dramatic vision.
