Listening to his latest release A Beach Full Of Shells you come to realize how much more Al has to offer and his music is as fresh as the first album released by him 38 years ago.
The sombre tone of Turn into earth from his first release in 1967 to Gina in the Kings road in 2005 shows how Al has matured like great red wine. There are still a lot of unrealesed music available through Neville Judd website who runs the Al Stewart merchandise store.
This latest boxset and ABeach full of shells is a musthave for any Al Stewart fan and anyone who has heard Year of the Cat. A very satisfying experience, I give 5 stars to this latest Boxset released by EMI.Thankyou very much Al. When is your next album due ? It seems you've only just begun.
