I bought this album with some trepidation. I had heard that SW was a reluctant performer at best in the early 1970s, and merely paying the rent in this subdued period following the excitement which greeted his launch as a solo artist 3 or 4 years earlier.

I need not have worried. "Little Things" , "Call Me Joe", "Mr James" and "The War is Over" could belong on any great SW CD and to my mind are better than many of the tracks on Scott 4. "Long About Now" is a beatiful collaboration track which desereves to be played over and over.

Bizarely following the Epilogue the record goes into cover mode with some middle of the road stuff which is ok only. Possibly the record company insisted on a more commercial approach. But thankfully by then you will be in love with the first 10 Engel tracks so who cares?

Til the Band is a fascination continuation of the Scott 1-4 outings and delivers as a great cd.

This is an album that Scott Walker does not rate well. He never liked this type of music and had to make it due to his contract. I love it and was pleased to be able to purchase it in CD format.

It's apt really that '`Til the Band Comes In' (1970) shows such a pronounced split between its two sides (Side A featuring original material, some of it excellent; Side B consisting almost entirely of covers, most of them dreary) because it can be seen very much as a 'bridging' album for Walker: the four preceding albums, Scotts 1-4 are the stuff of legend, each progressively darker and more idiosyncratic than the last, as Walker gradually shed his teen appeal, and moved away from classic ballads and Broadway hits towards Brel covers and his own, much more interesting material. But he always struggled to balance his own stuff with the demands of the entertainment industry and later 70s work saw Walker losing that battle, reverting to schmaltzy film tunes and country covers (before eventually moving towards a new, avant-garde sound in the 80s). All of which makes '`Til the Band Comes In' a fascinating halfway-point artefact if nothing else; the sound of a man straddling two eras, with one foot still in his creative past and another heading towards his tamer near-future. Which would be reason enough to take interest I suppose were it not for the fact that '`Til the Band Comes In' actually does stand on its own merits for the most part; this is much more than merely a curio, it's a sporadically excellent album. Conventional critical wisdom that the covers on Side B let the album down is about right; presumably a compromise with the record company and a sad signal of the rot that would eventually set in (although they're boring rather than plain awful; Walker's voice is too good for that). What's more, the Walker originals on Side A, though good, are mostly are a step down from those on Scotts 3 and 4, or at least, they don't display the same growth which those records did.Read more ›
