Scott Walker - Boy Child RSD22 Edition
Available exclusively in store on Saturday 23rd April 2022. Any/all remaining copies will be on sale online from 8pm on Friday 29th April.
The definitive Scott Walker solo collection, which has never been released on vinyl, made available as a gorgeous white vinyl with gatefold sleeve. To include beautiful photography with printed inner bags containing Marc Almond and Neil Hannon's original sleevenotes plus additional new notes from uber-fan Jarvis Cocker. Originally released in 1990, Boy Child gathered together the very best Scott Walker-penned solo material from Walker’s first five solo albums for Philips. While the original 20-track CD from 1990 has gone on to become of something of a definitive introduction to the artist’s early work, Boy Child was only available for a short time as a single vinyl LP with a truncated tracklist. With copies of these rare vinyl albums fetching high prices with collectors, Record Store Day 2021 sees the release, for the first time on vinyl, of the full collection as a deluxe, gatefold, 2LP set on 180 gram white vinyl and the additional inclusion of the classics ‘Thanks For Chicago, Mr James’, ‘Always Coming Back To You’ and ‘30th Century Man’ plus the rare non-album track ‘The Rope And The Colt’ (included on the 1990 CD but not the 2000 reissue) and ‘Angels Of Ashes’ (included on the 2000 reissue but not on the 1990 version). The album artwork also includes the original liner notes by Marc Almond from 1990, Neil Hannon’s notes from 2000 and new notes from Jarvis Cocker, specially written for this edition.
