    Loved the albums from day one.My first experience was hearing Love Chronicles back in 69 then buying Bedsitter Images and all the albums that followed.Favourite,well love them all but maybe Orange has to be a favourite. Great memories.

    My first memory of Al Stewart was seeing him in Barking Poly when he shared the bill with Michael Chapman. ” Manuscript” totally nailed it for me.
    He did Memphis Tennessee as an encore. The crowd lapped it up.

    Fantastic podcast. Looking forward to Part 2. Al Stewart is incredible.

    I think that Al has the highest percentage of excellent catalog works of any artist ever. Between the Wars is my favorite, but with Al, even most of his never released material is excellent.

    I think that Al has the highest percentage of excellent catalog works of any artist ever. Between the Wars is my favorite, but with Al, even most of his never released material is superb.

    Thank you for this interview. It was both informative and fun.

    Al Stewart is one of the great song writers of the age, having brought his poetic voice together with a unique sound that is uniquely his in whatever genre he chooses to play. I’m looking forward to listening to the next part of this series.

    However we found Al, most of us have stayed with him. For me it was my sister whose favourite teacher recommended him. She bought YOTC but was more Donny Osmond so let me take it to Uni. I then got all the back catalogue and am still listening. Orange and (unusually I believe) 24 Carrots are my most returned to albums. (Can’t say favourite, its like having a favourite child).
