This box set collects remastered versions of Scott Walker's first five solo albums. The Scott albums are the fulcrum of Walker's career: You can hear where he'd been, and in retrospect, where he was going. His third act was emerging after 20 years of almost total silence with Tilt, The Drift, and Bish Bosch, released between 1997 and 2012. Walker's latter-day albums are fearless and violent, featuring wailing donkeys, moans, scrapes, and famously, the sound of someone punching meat. They seem to have been written in another language entirely. The Scott albums, however, remain part of a tradition of highly arranged, rock-free music that valued old songs over new sounds and professionalism over innovation. Housed in a deluxe flip-over box
Five CDs in gatefold cardboard LP sleeve replicas of the original albums Scott (1967), Scott 2 (1968), Scott 3 (1969), Scott 4 (1969), and 'Til The Band Comes In (1970), housed in a hardback lift-off lid box. With 16 pp. booklet.
