    Caslon Rounded AKA (Old) Bowery for the German picture sleeve of Scott Walker’s first solo single in 1967. “Jackie” was originally written by Jacques Brel and Gérard Jouannest.

    The single met with controversy in the UK likely because of lyrics like “authentic queers and phony virgins” and drug references. The song was banned by the BBC and was not performed on the corporation’s TV or played on the mainstream radio channels. — Wikipedia
