Stewart, Al

Past, Present And Future
1974 Original, Santa Maria Press. Glossy, NM- Vinyl. Includes Lyric Insert. “Past, Present & Future: The Record Where Al Stewart Truly Begins To Discover His Voice. This Is Largely Through His Decision To Indulge His Fascination With History And Construct A Concept Album That Begins With "Old Admirals" And Ends With "Nostradamus" And His Predictions For The Future. A Concept Like This Undoubtedly Will Strike Prog Warning Bells In The Minds Of Most Listeners But, Ironically, He Has Stripped Back Most Of The Prog Trappings From Orange, Settling Into A Haunting Folk Bed For These Long, Winding Tales. If Anything, This Results In An Album That Is A Bit Too Subdued, But Even So, It's Apparent That Stewart Has Finally Found His Muse, Focusing His Songwriting And Intent To A Greater Extent Than Ever Before. Now, The Key Was To Find The Same Sense Of Purpose In Record-Making -- He Didn't Quite Get It Here, But He Would The Next Time Around.”All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
