Cornbread Records present Meet Scott Engel: The Humble Beginnings 1958-1962, a collection of early Scott Walker songs released under his birth name. One of the most beguiling and enigmatic figures in popular music, Scott Walker (born Scott Engel) began his career in Los Angeles, CA playing as a session bassist and recording demos. This eventually led to several singles under his birth name ranging across the popular teen sounds of the time, from rockabilly to doo wop to pure pop. Though these are decidedly of the time, you can hear in his voice the truly mind-bending work that was to come from Mr. Walker. A fascinating look at the early work of a truly brilliant cult figure. 180 gram vinyl with accompanying download code.
