Scott Walker in Four Easy Pieces

I was lucky enough last weekend to find a very cheap copy of the 5 disc Scott Walker box set 'Scott Walker in Five Easy Pieces', and so much of my week since has been filled with the wonderfully dulcet tones of this genius of geniuseseses! Each disc is a themed compilation of songs from throughout his career, from all the way back to the earliest Walker Brothers recordings through to the fantastically avant-garde Tilt record. It's obviously mega-recommended, as is anything he's been involved with over the years, and in particular last year's incredible The Drift.

I thought that tonight I'd post one song each from Mr Walker's first four solo records. Mathilde is from Scott, Plastic Palace People is from Scott 2, Sons Of... is from Scott 3, and The Seventh Seal is from Scott 4. Enjoy them, or you're a MORON.
