"Scott 2" by Scott Walker
Scott Walker "Scott 2" 1968 (UK/USA)
As the title indicates, this was Mr. Walker's second solo album.  Scott Walker had previously been the leader of the Walker Brothers, an expatriate singing group who left the USA for London in the mid-1960's hoping to make it as part of the British invasion (furthermore,  the Walker Brothers were not brothers, and none of them were named Walker either -- Scott's real last name is Engel.) When he went solo in 1967 he was quite successful in the UK for his unique "Tony Bennett on acid" style and outrageous English-language versions of Jacques Brel tunes (he even had his own TV show for a while!) This was his best selling LP, and includes the far-out UK hit "Jackie."
