Tremendous value collection of an artist at his peak.,
This review is from: Orange/Past, Present And Future/Modern Times (Audio CD)
Like his namesake Rod, there is no doubt that Al Stewart produced his bestwork in the early 70s prior to moving Stateside and earning greater richeswith generally lesser material. Having worn out two the three albumsfeatured in this excellent package on vinyl, it's great to hear these wellwritten songs again...so fresh and the musicianship so strong.
AlStewart really used some of the finest musicians of the era...thebrilliant booklet details some of the great names from 70s British Rockwho backed Stewart over these three albums and features a reallyinformative essay from acknowledged period expert, Alan Robinson. If youwant to investigate Al Stewart beyond the commercial 'Year of the Cat'(and you should)... then you can't go wrong with this collection.Enjoy.
