Scott Walker was an American who was huge in England, doing some of his best work singing the songs of a Belgian who lived in France. That'll mix anybody up, but some great work came from it. Marc Almond, of "Tainted Love" fame, said that Walker could have sung "Three Blind Mice" and make it sound like the only song in the world.
This is a very bleached out version of him performing Jacques Brel's "Jackie." Watching it, you can imagine a young David Bowie absolutely transfixed. Either that or frantically taking notes.
