    "The Return Of A Criminally Forgotten Genius"

    Al Stewart is a musical genius. Although this collection only focuses on his peak years (1976 through 1981), it contains some of the finest, most sophisticated pop music ever created. Stewart was a geat guitar and keyboard player, and his lyrics were far beyond anything that anyone else wrote. "Year Of The Cat," "Time Passages," "Song On The Radio," and "Midnight Rocks" are the tip of the iceberg, but all 10 trackson this disc are immortal. The intensity of Phil Kenzie's saxophone also help to make the songs sound brilliant. Al was around long before he recorded these songs, but these are probably the most memorable tunes he has ever created. Great music at a great price!

    Al Stewart has a lot of material, so picking the "best" is tough. This selection is a nice overview. Easy to listen to and overall a nice collection. Year of the Cat and Time Passages are classics. On the Boarder and Running Man - did not receive much air play, but are excellent listening. Finish it up with End of the Day and Almost Lucy. If you like Al Stewart and do not have these cuts, get this CD. Easy listen and a nice price.

    Along such luminaries as Boz Scaggs, Steve Miller, and Bob Seger, Al Stewart made his own mark in the late 70's. Hear the classic tracks like 'On The Border' , 'Time Passages' , 'Song On The Radio' , and the enchanting mesmerizing song that put Stewart on the road to stardom 'Year Of The Cat'.He belongs right up there with the singer/songwriter champions of his era.

    Not a huge fan but remember his songs from my high school days. Especially 'The Year of the Cat' album which was very well recorded. All the songs you would want are on this cd. Highly recommended.

    I enjoyed Al Stewart's music back in the early 80's and was pleased to find the CD in a sales bin at Best Buy. The song selection and sound quality were good.
