Scott Walker - Boy Child
By the time Mr Walker created his fourth solo album in 1969, technology had advanced so far that you can actually hear record company executives bricking themselves in the background.
Fortunately they are drowned out by the utter beauty of track 5, "Boy Child", a piece of music so vivid it's nearly film.
And a very late 60's film it is, the plot gone to India, the camera pointing straight into the sun.
It's Midsummer, you are slightly drunk and laughing with joy.

Scott 4 is available on a mid - price reissue.
Lucky you.
