YEAR OF THE CAT
TIME PASSAGES
Scottish Singer Songwriter Al Stewart looms large in the lore of the British Folk revival. Having shared a flat with a young Paul Simon, purchased his first guitar from The Police's Andy Summers, and begun his career playing alongside Cat Stevens, Van Morrison, Bert Jansch, and Roy Harper, Al Stewart has seen enough and done enough to merit the hype. His Platinum selling "Year Of The Cat" is a classic of the 1970's, and a perfect showcase of Stewart's out of the box craft. He writes with a staunch refusal to rehash, saying, "If it's already been written, why write it again? If it's already been said, why say it again?" His lyrical bushwhacking has earned him a place in the modern songwriting pantheon as one of the most unique and innovative voices on the scene.
