Format: Audio CD
'The Collection' is a budget compilation of Scott Walkers music from 1967 to 1970 plus 'Any Day Now' from 1973.

I'm actually quite new to Walkers music. About a year ago a friend lent me a compilation of material by Walker and the Walker Brothers called 'No Regrets'. It only featured six solo Walker songs, five of which are included on 'The Collection'. Those five songs were in keeping with the Walker Brothers' sound, but it was clear that in songs like 'Montague Terrace (In Blue)' and 'Boy Child' (not featured here unfortunately) that Scott Walker had greater range and a more experimental and unusual approach.

The material that is featured here is biased towards the material from 1967s 'Scott' and 1968s 'Scott 2'. Nine of the songs on this eighteen track CD are cut from those two LPs. Walker's two most celebrated albums are only represented by four songs, and these are arguably the best songs of the compilation. 'If You Go Away' and 'Copenhagen' from 'Scott 3' have all the orchestration expected, but use them in a manner which is less to sweeten and more to heighten Walker's vocal. Neither song is really a typical ballad, and display elements of several musical directions. 'The Seventh Seal' and 'Duchess' from 'Scott 4' have a stripped feel and a closer resemblance to pop.

A superb compilation featuring the greatest singer of torch songs , ballads etc i've ever heard.Bought this to update my worn out old vinyl copy (which i still treasure) of The Best Of Scott Walker from about '82.I wish they'd do a straight re-release of that gem.Tracklist was:Joanna , Lights of Cincinatti, I Will Wait For You ,Will You Still Be Mine ,Montague Terrace , When Joanna Loved Me......thats just side one.A Lost Classic.Get this though , the guy's transcendent.

I have only recently discovered Scott Walker, why this guy is not a MEGA STAR I have no idea; his voice is like liquid velvet, he has a fantastic range, with just the right amount of emotion, without all the screaming and shouting you find with more contemporary artists today. I've gone on to buy two further CD's and they are all excellent. This should be in everyone's CD collection.
