Editorial Reviews

2010 three CD set containing a trio of albums from the American Pop/Rock trio (all out-of-print separately): No Regrets, Lines and Nite Flites. The members of the group were Scott Engel on lead vocals and bass guitar, John Maus on guitar and vocals, and drummer Gary Leeds. They came together in Los Angeles in 1964 and formed the group. While their biggest hits were covers of songs by American pop songwriting teams like Bacharach-David and Mann-Weil, Scott (and occasionally John Walker) could write brooding originals in a more personal, less overblown style when given the chance. Their most successful period was in the mid to late '60s, although these '70s albums are equally impressive. Columbia.

3.0 out of 5 stars Five stars for the 4 songs I wanted February 21, 2011
Verified Purchase
Bought this set, frankly, because it was the cheapest way available to get Nite Flights on CD. Finally decided to replace my lp and was chagrined to find that buying all three of these was vastly cheaper than trying to get NF by itself. And, frankly, was really only wanting the four Scott Walker songs on NF.

All that said, there are a handful of enjoyable songs spread out over the other two discs, but as a whole, the rest is rather bland, MOR soft rock that fades from memory by the time the song is over. Still, unless someone rereleases NF in an affordable package, this is still worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice collection! November 29, 2010
By Moser

Good to have these three albums in one place. Have been looking for a reasonably-priced copy of Nite Flights for a while and finally found this! I was also pleasantly surprised with the country-tinged sound of Lines and No Regrets; there's great songs on both albums. The CDs each have their own cardboard sleeve with the original vinyl art.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Brothers' dark era September 9, 2012
Verified Purchase
On overview, this 3 studio album collection by The Walker Brothers compiles the least necessary (and often avoidable) part of their career - their mid seventies reunion - and for several reasons.

Firstly, their material became a downgrade from their sixties output. Not only did the Brothers turned 180 degrees from baroque pop melodramas to soft rock and blue-eyed soul, but also their material ceased to come from relevant sources. Whereas they were once top interpreters of American Brill Building material (Bacharach, Mann, Weil, Goffin, King etc) they turned their influences to the likes of Boz Scaggs and Elton John (the latter in style, not material).

While there are noteworthy numbers here and there (the song "No Regrets" being their peak commercial track) fans will shy away from both Lines and No Regrets, possessing almost zero artistic value, until they reach Nite Flights, where Scott Walker shows off his very first self-penned numbers of his avant-garde reincarnation. And likewise it is hardly of any value to casual fans - if anything it will leave a bad first impression - which will be the case due to the budget price of this collection.

Material-wise is nice to have these hard to find works on cd, and even better from the official Columbia sources, but it lacks any notes or booklets, replacing it for mini lp sleeves and nothing else. So AS A WHOLE 3 stars.
