First time Vinyl Pressing-Two LP set of the reissue of his 1998 release which was showered with critical praise upon its initial 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. Tracklisting includes 'Foolish Love', 'Danny Boy', 'April Fools',' In My Arms', 'Matinee Idol', 'Sally Ann', 'Imaginary Love' and more.
