Walker Fans will love it
on 5 January 2007
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.
