Wainwright, Rufus S/t


Formats Available

Showered with critical praise upon its 1998 release, RUFUS WAINWRIGHT’s debut album established him as the massive talent that he remains today. The child of acclaimed folk songwriters Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, Rufus' style owes more to the orchestral pop of Scott Walker or VAN DYKE PARKS (whose orchestral arrangements adorn much of this album), the opera, and the work of Edith Piaf and Judy Garland, than it does his own musical lineage. The debut pop classic from one of this generation's most important artists. Available on vinyl for the very first time.
