Scott Walker Scott 3 Vinyl

Scott 3 is the third solo album by singer songwriter Scott Walker.

Upon release in 1969, it met with slightly fewer sales than his previous albums, as pop audiences struggled to keep pace with Walker’s increasingly experimental approach, though it still reached #3 on the UK Album Chart. The dense, lush string arrangements by Wally Stottseemed to evoke a Vegas-style lounge crooner atmosphere, but one tinted with surreal drones and touches of dissonance.

Since its release, it has been regarded by many of Walker’s fans as a favourite. The title of the compilation Fire Escape in the Sky: The Godlike Genius of Scott Walker is taken from the lyrics of the song “Big Louise”, and the 2006 documentary Scott Walker: 30 Century Manis named after “30 Century Man”.

A cover of “30 Century Man” by the Jigsaw Seen was used in the animated film Futurama: Bender’s Big Score. Marc Almond covered the song “Big Louise” in 1982 with his band Marc and the Mambas on the album Untitled.

The final three tracks are covers of compositions by Jacques Brel.
