About this album

Somebody, somewhere finally got their wish, but sadly a compromise was made. That wish was to finally see the reissue of the rare Scott Walker recordings from the late 1960s and early 70s that until now have never been issued on cd (even with the In Five Easy Pieces box set released last year). Those rare recordings include the albums Scott Walker sings songs from his TV series (1969), The Moviegoer (1972) and Any Day Now (1973) and some earlier Walker Brothers material. But rather than create a compilation solely for this rare material (in an attractive 2cd set, for instance), somebody came up with the concept of combining a 2cd set with one disc dedicated to Scott’s classic material and another disc dedicated to this collectible material in a collection called simply enough Classics & Collectibles. This same concept has been used for compilations by Dusty Springfield and Peggy Lee.

Previous Scott Walker compilations had their place. Boy Child: The Best of Scott Walker 1967-1970 from 1992 did a fine job of offering some of his best self-penned tunes with a few tasty rarities. No Regrets: The Best of Scott Walker & the Walker Brothers from 1992 did a fine job of culling a collection with both Scott Walker and Walker Brothers material. The Best of the Walker Brothers from 2000 looks even better with a host of rarities in the tracklisting. It’s Raining Today: The Scott Walker Story (1967-70) from 1996 was the first US released compilation. In Five Easy Pieces was a unique box set.
