A bit dreary,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stretch/We Had It All (Audio CD)
2 albums on one cd Both albums are very much on the country side of Scott walker. A far cry from the excellent lush ballads, Joanna, lights of Cincinnatti etc which really showcased his superb voice.
STRETCH; A mixture of songs by Randy Newman, Goffin/King, Bill Withers etc...All excellently sung - but very dreary. There are no up tempo numbers at all on this album..could do with a lift at times.
WE HAD IT ALL; Once again in the country style but with a little more 'oomph' than 'Stretch' ... Low down freedom, Black Rose, Delta Dawn,Gordon Lightfoot's 'Sundown'
stand out. All in all - this is not a bad album and my favourite of the two.
Scotts voice is excellent throughout though.
