mine = wally stott!
i dont know. i'm referring to his work on Scott Walker's early solo records. OMG its good.
I was right, too - I knew I recognised the name. Also, click here for a surprise:
...she was born March 10th too! Me, Wally Stott and Osama Bin Laden. March10cru!
as well as Sepp Blatter, Chuck Norris, Morgan Tsvangirai, Shannon Tweed, Sharon Stone, Neneh Cherry, Prince Edward, Edie Brickell, Timbaland, Eva Herzigova, Chris Sutton, Colin Murray and Samuel Eto'o.
Poor old Morgan Tsvangirai. I know most people wake up with a splitting headache the day after their birthday, but there's no need to take it that far.
What a powerful list of strength and talent!
you lose all respect i had for you now, just by assosciation.
Heh...I knew about Wally Stott. Can't remember his her new name though. Walhelmina?
I couldn't mention just one. Brian Wilson is a winner...sterling work, but as far as standalone arrangers go, Robert Kirby, for his work with Nick Drake and Vashti Bunyan. I love that bit in 'river man' where theres a bit of lyrics about the wind blowing, and the strings do a shimmer.
yeah...I've been listening to Nick Drake a bit. Arrangements are amazing- subtle.
Did Wally Stott arrange 'we came through' off Scott Three Or was that someone else?
I Love how energetic that is, and how it sounds like falling down stairs at the end. Also- who arranged 'little things' off 'til the band comes in' That's another cracking arrangement, and 'duchess'...If that's all Wally Stott...fucking brilliant
and little things are stott, cant remember about duchess. my favourite scott with him is probably jackie or mathilde
Shamefully, that's one of the only Scott Walker songs I know. I can count the others on the fingers of one hand.
Jackie is great...but I much prefer tracks he wrote therefore I'd recommend getting Scott 4 if you're interested in pursuing Scottness.
i'd say any of the first four is a good start. actually joe, i'll do you a mix cd for the next time i'm in lundun.
I think I have a Best Of of his somewhere that I've never really listened to. I'll dig it out.
so there's four more to get stuck in to.
good excellence! get back to me if you do want that cd tho. i could also do you a GBV intro cd if you like?
If we're talking orchestral, I also love
I'll think of more...
Dolly Collins, sister of Shirley. She brought a very eerie "early music" feel to Shirl's work.
I only found out recently that she was famous, like. She's got an MBE now an' all.
