In 1965, Scottish born Al Stewart moved to London where he started writing and performing at the clubs as well as introducing the likes of Simon & Garfunkel, Cat Stevens, Bert Jansch, John Renbourne, and Ralph McTell. Al’s first album, Bedsitter Images, was released in 1967, followed by Past, Present and Future, his first USA release, which became a cult album that has now sold close to a million copies worldwide. Year Of The Cat, released in 1976, became Al’s first platinum album in the United States. With both sharp wit and tender compassion, Al so brilliantly captures the mood of the period that fans of all ages will no doubt be inspired to crack a history book or two after just one listen.
