Notes About the Release
By the time his eponymous LP flopped out on Reflection in 1970, Robert William “Bobby” Scott had 24 full-length records to his name, a Grammy Award, a #13 track on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and had toured and recorded with Louis Prima, Chet Baker, and Quincy Jones. Did we mention his massive hit for The Beatles? We’ll get there.

A student of the La Follette School of Music, Scott began working as a professional musician at the tender age of eleven. A pianist and vibraphonist by trade, Scott was an instrument renaissance man, and could handle cello, clarinet, accordion, and double bass with equal proficiency. Don’t get us started on that voice—so powerful and tender it echoes in your bones. A masterclass in songwriting, featuring Scott’s classic ballads “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother,” and “Willoughby Grove,” the album captures the passage of time’s bittersweet nostalgia with an elegance and weight few have been able to achieve.
