Just been wishing an old friend in Oz happy 50th and reminiscing about the great music we used to listen to in the Seventies when we were hairy teenagers [and for my part still do! I never grew up, still play records, watch videos, don't own an IPod and have never played a video game in my life! Sad I know!]. Well, as is occasionally my want, here's one of those tunes [or tracks as we would have so earnestly said aged 17!] that simply embodies those halcyon days of stupendous promise and everlasting youth, Al Stewart's truly beautiful Year of the Cat from the LP of the same name, all of which is equally haunting. Al has that indescribable and unique English male voice like Nick Drake and Peter Hammill. Recommended Moonbase play. Just remembered how I loved looking at the cover spotting all the moggy artifacts! Oh what feline fun!
If you liked this then maybe listen to Al's Broadway Hotel from the same album. Gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it!
