Al Stewart (born in Glasgow, Scotland on 5 September 1945) is a British songwriter and musician. He is best known for his 1976 single Year of the Cat and its 1978 follow-up Time Passages (both produced by Alan Parsons). Stewart's inspiration for his songs primarily comes from the past; indeed, he is credited with creating his own genre, "historical folk rock". At one time in his life, Stewart took guitar lessons from King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp.

  • Very distinct voice.
  • On The Border <3
  • Love... Love ... Love ... :-)
  • I remember to got "Time Passages" about 30 years ago as a used LP from a school friend that time. I really love to hear it from time to time since today. "Almost Lucy" is one of my favourites.
  • the year of the cat - самая прекрасная песня на свете
  • Gran artista, su obra resiste dignamente el paso del tiempo. Tiene temas realmente extraordinarios en sus primeros álbumes. Su música lleva acompañándome toda la vida, desde los ya lejanos días de los 70, cuando descubrí la limpidez del sonido de su guitarra en un mítico disco recopilatorio de artistas de CBS, "Fill Your Head With Rock" (1970). En este álbum aparecía un tema en el que se puede escuchar una magistral interpretación de Al Stewart, el tema titulado "Small Fruit Song". Es fabuloso.
  • The Ballad Of Mary Foster, where can I find a r ecording of this tune?
  • Anyone know where I can down load Love Chronicles?
  • In 1974 I sat on the floor in front of the stage at the Warwick University Arts festival and ligyht up a spliff. I was hooked from then on in.
  • "Year of the Cat" probably one of the best songs I've ever heard!!!
