The album brings all the Brel material that Walker covered on record. Walker transformed the numbers into unique, dramatic experiences. Each of the tracks is a gem, but three stand out: the grandiose, swirling waitz of "Amsterdam", the powerful "My Death", and "Next"

Note- Little Things (That Keep Us Together): Not a Brel composition but one of Scott's own that, perhaps, reveals a Brel influence. I don't believe in love songs" Scott once said. At least, not the old romantic cliches.

Like Brel, Walker brought a measure of romanticism to the mundane and set his poetic lyrics within arrangements that fleshed out the emotional range of his human comedies, much like miniature soundtracks. Working with Mort Shuman's accomplished translations (and one more schmaltzy version by Rod McKuen), Walker captures the spirit and the many moods of Brel's originals, from quiet pathos ("If You Go Away") to dark humor ("Funeral Tango") to exuberant cynicism ("Jackie") to unbridled euphoria ("Mathilde"), in the process infusing the songs with.
