The singular Robert Wyatt will release His Greatest Misses - a compilation spanning his decades-long career - on vinyl for the first time ever on October 9th via Domino.
In its title, His Greatest Misses acknowledges that Wyatt’s career has taken place outside the limited space and definition of commercial pop success, but simultaneously recognises that Wyatt’s non-careerist career has nevertheless proven both productive and rigorous. The collection, originally released as a Japanese edition, includes selections dating from Rock Bottom (1974) to Cuckooland (2003), although its running order is non-chronological. This makes the subtle point that Wyatt’s recordings are best considered as a non-linear catalogue, this is a world through which the listener can move at any pace in any direction.
The compilation showcases many of Wyatt’s musical abilities, particularly his favoured technique of allowing his serpentine keyboard melodies to intertwine with his voice, vividly present in the opening bars of “Sea Song”.
