Al Stewart - Year Of The Cat (1976)

Al Stewart
Year Of The Cat (1976, RCA Victor / Janus Records)

"Time for some hazy jane, Bowie-infused soft-rock. I've no idea whether Stewart was actually influenced by Bowie, this was his seventh album after all and, in truth, it doesn't sound very much like Bowie at all, but at times it reminds me of him so I said it. Forgive me if I'm talking out of my ass. Anyway, this is pretty laid back, chilled out groovage with some excellent instrumentation and production so please enjoy. And I'll just throw in one more "Bowie" for good luck. Later gators! xoxo" - DD
