Limited Edition 2014 remastered repress on Back To Black/Universal label of the 1967 Scott Walker album.

The first Scott Walker solo album is a strong showcase of the singer's musical vision. Past influences and future ambitions juxtapose brilliantly throughout the record, mixing his unique, deep crooning tradition with bizarre themes, from which the Brel translations and Walker's own compositions are plain extraordinary. The extreme contrasts of the songs' structures, a balance between chaotic themes and saccharin orchestrations, would become Walker's trademark during his late 60s' records. As his career developed, Walker would become a deeper and darker artist, slowly getting rid of the ultra-sweet arrangements of his early career, and Scott (I) acts as the perfect bridge.
