Anyway, I may have a few Scott Walker notes not in this list yet, I'll keep you posted.

Edit:

High
Spoiler:




Low
Spoiler:





The notable part in the  near 13 minute "Clara" is at 2:48, some F#4s in that new operatic style of his. I've heard several of his albums secondhand, but have a sort of foggy memory of the notes. You actually found most of the highest ones I knew of, you could probably start his notable range at about Eb4/E4.

Edit 2: Here are some I gathered, not counting what you've already found.

High Notes

F#4 Clara, The Plague, Rawhide, Rhymes of Goodbye
F4 We came through, Hero of the war, Jesse, Bolivia '95, The Seventh Seal, Jolson & Jones,
Track 5, Queue, Phrasing, The Day The Conductor Died (A Christmas Song)
E4 Two Weeks since you've gone, Farmer in the City, Bouncer See Bouncer, Funeral Tango, Patriot (A Single) Make it easy on your self, Next
Eb4 Sons of, Alone

Low Notes

B2 Copenhagen
A2 30 century Man, Winter Night, The Sun Ain't Gonna shine anymore, Only myself to blame, Track Six, The Girls From the Streets.
G#2 Alone, Track 5
G2 If you go away, Man from Reno

IMO this is as good as finished. I believe everything's covered save for probably minor Walker Brothers tunes and Walker's solo "lost years" country rock covers albums regarding which I'm of the "not even once" school of listening.

You think so? as far as the extremities of his range it probably is, but do you not think there might be some more to add in between? I've only heard one of his old albums (60s stuff, Climate technically isn't "old" in the same sense) the rest were just select songs.

Yeah, I take that back. Chalk it up to trying to call shots without even knowing how things work on this forum.
