Inspired partly by Rol's inspired ICA and by a growing awareness that it really should be on the shelves I finally got round to purchasing 69 Love Songs by The Magnetic Fields with some of my birthday money.
You will appreciate that with 69 songs to get through it will take me a few listens before it features here.
However on an initial cursory listen Stephen Merritt's voice immediately put me in mind of Noel Scott Engel or Scott Walker if you prefer
Here then are a couple of songs from the compilation Boy Child - the best of 1967-1970 which features tracks from Scott, Scott 2, Scott 3, Scott 4 and 'Til The Band Comes In.
Scott Walker - It's Raining Today
Scott Walker - Boy Child
