Japanese vinyl pressings are highly sought after by audiophiles and collectors, due to their beautiful packaging and premium sound quality (which explains why American audiophile label Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab chose to have their highly regarded pressings manufactured in Japan). Nice condition original Japanese pressings are becoming scarcer — therefore more collectable and valuable every year.
Recorded in 1967, the highly acclaimed debut LP from Scott Walker reached number 3 in the UK charts. A young Mr. David Bowie clearly owned a copy, as he would later record two of the Jacques Brel songs featured here ~ “My Death” & “Amsterdam”.
