'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. The beat on both, but more apparent on 'The Seventh Seal', drives the songs with more of rock 'n' roll rhythm that is not heard on the compilation (apart from perhaps the thunderous 'Jackie').

This is not to say material from 'Scott' and 'Scott 2' is nothing but uniformly excellent. Of course, with the Walker Brothers and as a solo artist he often shone blasting out the ballads and covers. 'Montague Terrace (In Blue)', 'The Lady Came from Baltimore' and 'Amsterdam' for example are all fantastic.

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.

This CD will have to be my last of the singer Scott Walker he has a marvellous voice but due to him having a very short recording career his songs are very limited and I now find myself duplicating his songs, he had a fantastic deep singing voice but has now gone on to blues singing which he has not had recorded

Having met Scott when I was in my early teens I only listened to The Walker Brothers but a comment I a book I was reading on my kindle I ordered this album. I love it and play it on my Walkman a the gym, in the greenhouse and doing housework. It takes me back and the work gets done so much quicker.

Scott Walker first rose to UK fame in the mid 1960s, as a member of The Walker Brothers. This 2004 budget compilation from Spectrum, offers a look at his solo music from 1967 to 1973. It serves up a fantastic introduction to this American man, who has one of the best voices you'll ever hear in the world of popular music. He is a tremendous talent as a vocalist, and as a songwriter.

A man of many styles, he can really belt out lushly orchestrated ballads like 'Joanna' with so much emotion, and sound just as good when singing experimental pop music, spaghetti westerns like 'The Rope And The Colt', and 'beautiful country-folk songs like 'Black Sheep Boy' and 'The Lady Came From Biltmore', both of which came from the pen of Tim Hardin. The latter of those Hardin covers is actually, along with perfection of 'Duchess', is probably my favourite of the 18 tracks on featured on this CD, which also offers excellent sound quality. Although I would recommend that you purchase Scott Walker's studio releases to fully appreciate his work (my all-time favourite is his classic, self-titled debut album of 1967: Scott, and six of it's twelve tracks appear on here), this single disc is a great one for newcomers who are keen for their taste.

'The Collection' comes with a thin booklet that includes a short essay about Scott Walker's recording career by experienced music magazine writer Daryl Easlea.
