My Ship Is Coming In is an essential 2CD collection of the hits of the Walker Brothers from the '60s and '70s. Featuring the instantly recognisable baritone of Scott Walker, hits such as "Make It Easy In Yourself", "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" and "My Ship is Coming In" gave the trio a teenage fanbase in the late '60s to rival the Beatles in size. A reformation in the late '70s brought further timeless singles, including "No Regrets".

Almost...with one strange exception. The version of "Sun ain't gonna shine" is not what you'd want or expect; the lead vocal is so far back in the mix that it's almost buried under the orchestral backing. It sounds like Scott Walker was in another building when it was being recorded, you can hardly hear him. It's definitely not what it should be, but it's the only track on the double CD which suffers from the problem - on every other song, the production and mixing is perfect. Technically, someone seems to have a dropped a clanger when "Sun ain't gonna shine" was mastered for this release.
So their best song (for me) is spoiled by a very poor balance of voice/orchestra. It's annoying, but you can learn to live with it. This is a great compilation - but you'll want to buy something else for a decent version of "Sun ain't gonna shine".
