Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
Past, Present and Future
“My first four albums have been, for me, an apprenticeship. The new album … is my thesis,” said Al Stewart upon the release of his PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE. The 1973 collection marked a shift from the British singer-songwriter's folk roots to the progressive pop approach that would soon make him world famous. Recorded at London's Trident Studios with a small army of accompanists (including Yes' Rick Wakeman and Fairport Convention's Dave Swarbrick), Stewart takes listeners through the decades of the 20th century on eight well-crafted originals including “Roads To Moscow,” “Soho (Needless To Say)” and “Terminal Eyes.” His first release in America, this concept album shows Al Stewart truly hitting his stride, and we'll give PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE another spin today in honor of his birthday.
