Many in the English-speaking world first heard of Jacques Brel through Scott Walker's championing, yet when Scott launched his post-Walker Brothers solo career with his recording of Brel's 'Jackie' in 1967, Brel had been an enormous star in France for years. That lofty status was remarkable, given Brel's lyrical obsessions with doomed romance, loneliness, prostitution and death. This new Ace compilation comprises Scott's interpretations of the nine Brel songs featured on his "Scott", "Scott 2" and "Scott 3" albums, followed by Brel's own French language originals, plus Brel's version of 'Seul', a song Scott performed on his TV series but of which made no studio recording. Packaged with a stylish 24-page booklet featuring essays on Scott Walker and Jacques Brel by Ian Johnston and Kris Needs respectively.
