A few weeks ago, during our latest little snowpocalypse, I decided that I needed to own a copy of Fire Escape in the Sky: The Godlike Genius of Scott Walker. Luckily, there was one for sale on eBay. Also luckily, it was going for much less than I expected. Even more luckily, I was the only bidder. And even luckier still, the sale ended less than 12 hours from when I found it. So I bid and I won. Lucky me.
The record shipped from the UK. While it was in transit my lady decided that I should have a record player. So I have one of those now, too.
At time of writing, I have four records:
There are 12 songs on the record and they’re all good but I wondered, if this compilation were to be made today, what would it include? So I made this list: Another fire escape, same sky.
