Remastered from original analogue tapes? How do these BTB Scott Walker reissue pressings sound?

Probably one of the most unique artists that appeared in the 20th century. Scott Walker is a remarkable singer of course, but what is even more interesting is that he's a singer that was placed in the teenage world of England and Europe, and as an American who has a strong taste in European culture, that goes beyond being a mere fan. If one can transform oneself into another being or spirit, Scott Walker succeeds greatly.

"Scott" is the first of many albums, and although he only wrote three songs out of the 12 cuts, each one has his stamp or personality tattoed on the grooves. For one, it is a mature work done by a young man. While Mick & Keith were concerned about getting a "Connection" or the Fab Four reflecting on Lovely Rita, Scott was meditating on "My Death." For a pop album of that period, 1967, it must have stood out like a diseased object, swelling with strings and orchestration, and then Scott's voice cutting through the arrangements like a hot knife cutting bread. One can compare his work at the time with the Sinatra world of the 1950s, specifically his ballad albums, but the truth is Scott's take is more internal, private, and of course, angst.

None of the covers on this album are obvious. Even though they are written by classic songwriters like Mann/Weil, Wayne Shanklin, and Andre Previn, it's mostly unknown material, at least to my knowledge and ears. The big discovery here is both his Jacques Brel obsession, and one of the first singers to dwell into his work in English, and his songwriting. "Montague Terrace (In Blue)," "Such a Small Love," and "Always Coming Back to You" sound like classic songwriting from an earlier era. He has nothing in common with his age group of fellow writers. Scott comes from an alternative universe, and listening to "Scott" is still a discovery of something new that seems to come from an imagined past.

This lovely Philips pressing from Japan 1968 sounds fantastic & is in stereo unlike some of the '67 issues, well worth obtaining if you haven't added Scott 1 to your collection. Collectors & uber fans should seek this one out because not only is it such a good pressing, the cover is different from the UK version. It's in heavy cardboard, gatefold sleeve style, with all the lyrics in English/Japanese on pages on the inside & reviews of Scott's music & career thus far (in Japanese) even quoting Australian newspapers comparing the young Scott Engel to Bing Crosby & Harry Belafonte. It's definitely a collector's item.

Bootleg repress. Do not buy.

Record sounds dead - lacks any of the punch you'd expect though it appears that that may be because its just ripped and pressed from the CD.

The pressing I ended up with was awful. Mathilde started twice - very quietly and then properly about a second later. 'Montague Terrace (In Blue)' is a disgrace - you can hear the compression noise floor rising every time there is a moment of silence and there are also a few major noises through the song mainly in the left channel.

I gave up after these two songs - for a 180gram pressing if it was in any way reputable these issues wouldn't be there - and I'll be returning it tomorrow.

4.5/5

The first Scott Walker solo album is a strong showcase of the singer's musical vision. Past influences and future ambitions juxtapose brilliantly throughout the record, mixing his unique, deep crooning tradition with bizarre themes, from which the Brel translations and Walker's own compositions are plain extraordinary. The extreme contrasts of the songs' structures, a balance between chaotic themes and saccharin orchestrations, would become Walker's trademark during his late 60s' records. As his career developed, Walker would become a deeper and darker artist, slowly getting rid of the ultra-sweet arrangements of his early career, and Scott (I) acts as the perfect bridge.
