Scott Walker Scott: Scott Walker Sings Songs From His TV Series (Phillips, 1969). Years later, Walker blocked the CD re-release, yet he allowed through 1973’s second Walker album, Stretch (after Scott’s nickname), this time more of a solid track selection (songs by Newman, Jimmy Webb, Micky Newbury, Carole King and Gerry Goffin), but no less depressing, as Scott phoned it in. Next up was (irony alert) We Had It All, more bloody covers, but it’s Scott’s first outright country music record – four songs were written by Texan Billy Joe Shaver, and there’s room for The Eagles’ ‘What Ever Happened to Saturday Night?’. Or, whatever happened to Scott Walker?

Tilt (Scott Walker album). Walker composed the songs for the album between 1991 and 1992 except "Manhattan", which was written in 1987, and the final song "Rosary", which was composed in 1993. The album was recorded at RAK Recording Studios and Townhouse Studios in the UK and its release had been expected as early as 1992 but was not completed until 1995 Contents.

Although Walker's second album was his biggest commercial success, actually reaching number one in Britain, it was not his greatest artistic triumph. His taste remains eclectic, encompassing Bacharach/David, Tim Hardin, and of course his main man Jacques Brel (who is covered three times on this album). And his own songwriting efforts hold their own in this esteemed company.

reDiscover Scott Walker’s ‘Scott 2’. Remembering the vocal stylist and songwriter’s second solo sojourn. Published on. May 18, 2019. The late performer’s debut solo album Scott reached No. 3 in the UK in 1967, and spent a total of seven weeks in the top ten. The follow-up started a little slowly, but it was on 18 May 1968 that it completed its journey to No. 1, and we invite you to reDiscover Scott 2. Listen to Scott 2 right now. Again working with producer John Franz, the American vocalist had no reason to change the winning formula of the earlier album.

User reviews
Relatively under-rated Scott LP compared to the two that followed - but if you're in-tune with Scott's weird whoring string-soaked chanteur vibe, there's a lot to love here. Tracks like The Amorous Humphrey Plugg and The Girls From The Streets are strange meditations that completely belie their syrupy production with bizarrely introspective lyrics and structure - they create their own worlds and if you like it, you can live there a while.
