GUEST,Nicholas Waller Info about Al Stewart (23) RE: Info about Al Stewart 21 May 06


Did Columbia suppress all the early albums then, just because of that?

I must admit "Love Chronicles" is my least favourite album and indeed song from early Al Stewart, though generally I much prefer early Stewart (up to Year of the Cat) to post-Time Passages stuff (apart from 1995's Between the Wars, which I do like). Songs like "Manuscript", "Roads to Moscow", "The Dark and the Rolling Sea", "Samuel, Oh How You've Changed", "Old Compton Street Blues" and "News from Spain" are still great songs.

I got into him as my older brother John had several of his records. He was a student at Bristol University in the late 60s and was an occasional floor singer at the Troubadour there, sometimes while Al Stewart was playing (which he writes about
here).
