The “Year of the Cat” album established Al Stewart as one of the pre-eminent folk rock artists in the world with this multi-million selling album . Released in the autumn of 1976 this album soon confirmed superstar status on the artist Al Stewart. Produced by Alan Parsons, who would also produce “Modern Times” previously as well as ” Past , Present and Future”.
“Modern Times”, the second album included in this collection.
Al’s initial foray into Historical Folk Rock with the album “Past, Present and Future”, Al changes his approach to songwriting from personnal romantic folkie songs filled with angst, to world historian narratives based on famous people and great events in history.

Included here is the Masterpiece song “Modern Times”. Songs such as “Apple Cider Re-Constitution”, :Carol” are still regularly inserted into current set lists.
