Scott Walker / The Collection 1967-1970 / CD and LP box sets

Scott Walker - The Collection 5CD box set

The CDs and LPs are remastered from the original tapes

Scott Walker’s first five solo albums are to be issued together for the first time on vinyl and CD on 29 April 2013. Cut and mastered from the original tapes and presented with their original artwork, the five albums brought together here are: Scott, Scott 2, Scott 3, Scott 4 and ‘Til The Band Comes In. These were all originally issued between 1967 and 1970.

The five-CD set comes in a hardback, lift-off lid, box-set, each CD recreating the original album artwork and with new, extensive sleeve notes on each album plus rare photos. The 16-page booklet is written by Rob Young who edited last year’s No Regrets: Writings on Scott Walker.

The Deluxe LP box set features the original album artwork and includes an 11 inch print replicated from Scott 2, plus a 48 page booklet containing Rob Young’s essay. All five LPs come in 180gm heavyweight vinyl, with Scott 3 and Scott4 reproduced in the original gatefold jackets.

  1. Paul English says:

    The 4 Men With Beards vinyl reissues suffered from poor sound. I’d advise people to search out the original pressings – you should be able to pick up the lot for about £100.

  2. Marcus Sigismund says:

    That looks nice, I will definitely check the vinyl box.

  3. Philip says:

    Arrived today, looks really fab……
