SISSYDUDE LOVES: SCOTT 3 (1969)

00602537409037-cover-zoom

Some kind stranger asked me today… “What is your favorite album”? I thought for a second or two… was it The Smith’s The Queen Is Dead? Sinatra’s “Only The Lonely”? And then out of the blue I told him Scott Walker’s “Scott 3″. So here it is. If you are not familiar with it give it a try. A geeky (and very cute) buddy of mine turned me on to Walker in the early ’90s but Walker’s music just didn’t click with me till a few years later… and I’ve adored his stunning vocals and atmospheric arrangements ever since. As much as I appreciate his weird and dark recordings of the 1990s and 2000s, it’s his 60’s & 70’s recordings that are very dear to my heart.

Scott 3, 1969 Lp, is the third solo album by singer songwriter Scott Walker. All songs written and composed by Scott Walker (credited as Noel Scott Engel), except where noted.

And here is one of my fave Walker tracks (not on Scott 3) “Joe”.


lovely sunday morning tuneage… DANE TERRY’S “COLOR MOVIES” (via walt c)

Article-7456729-DaneTerry

“To say Color Movies is a group of songs about my childhood and adolescence is true but insufficient,” Terry admits. “It’s a few memories in glass; the result of a maddening stock-taking effort; counting cans with unreadable labels. But I have a markedly questionable, impressionistic memory. I can’t know what is true and verifiable about my life. everything is so hazy. everyone was so sad. All of this is to say some of Color Movies is true, and some is fantastic fiction and I don’t know which is which. I never did.” – Dane Terry
