More Info
The 6th solo album from Scott Walker, originally released in 1970.

The album has a loose concept about the inhabitants of a tenement and was split between ten original compositions and five interpretations of middle-of-the-road standards and pop songs.

Pulp implied that side 2 of the album was significantly weaker than side one in the lyrics of their 2001 single "Bad Cover Version". Ironically Walker produced the song and its parent album "We Love Life", although Pulp vocalist Jarvis Cocker states the song was written long before Walker became involved in the project. Cocker also noted that he was nervous about singing the line in front of Walker, although when it came to it Walker either did not notice or did not care.
