    Scott 3 is a bit overrated IMO. The run of songs from Butterfly to Winter Night don't do much for me, but I don't deny that the first five and last four tracks are some of his very best work.

      Just wanted to make a comment on the lyrics of Rosemary which I feel are often misinterpreted and wrong on every google entry I can find. Transcribed as "that travelling salesman Mr Jim" which I think is wrong. That implies a real life lover who is a real travelling salesman with a name. It should be "Mr Gin", her real love, alcohol. It makes sense of the lines that follow and the song as a whole. In fact it changes the whole meaning of the song, as Rosemary is an alcoholic, existing in a dreamy semi-stupor, unable to break free, as her life, hopes and dreams ebb away.

      This is my favourite Walker LP and his purest artistic statement, where his song writing bloomed and he made no compromises. This LP was released in 1969, but you really wouldn't know it, it's completely divorced from age and time, a singular masterpiece.

          Scott's greatest album. Don't believe the Johnny cum latelys that will tell you Scott 4 is his masterpiece. For those of us who've been listening for longer than the last 5 minutes, we know it's Scott 3.
