Year of the Cat - Remastered +bonus
10th September 2001 saw the 'anniversary reissue' of Al Stewarts biggest-selling album.
This *IS* available in the US - but at a silly price, so it's probably better value at Amazon.co.uk, even with the extra carriage costs.

September 2001 also saw the release in Germany of a new compilation album.
Not yet available elsewhere, even as an import, but you can buy it at Amazon.de - if you can manage the language.

As the site has grown, so have file sizes, and so has the task of updating links with the smallest of site changes.
So I have done a fairly radical rebuilding of the site - though the changes should be invisible, as I have made much greater use of templates, with more editable areas, plus I have started using server side includes to reduce file sizes.
So, why tell us?
The change that will affect visitors is the change of name of almost all text files from .HTML to .SHTML; this means any bookmarks will be affected, except those pointing to the front page.
Sorry for the inconvenience; this should be a one-off change, that will allow me to achieve more, in less time - and time has been a tad tight lately!
Web Ring Created
I've created a web ring to enable Al Stewart Fan Sites to link and promote each other.

March 2001: Tour Cockup
The Jazz Cafe dates in London were seriously mis-sold, though for most of us, it did not spoil the evening (see review).
The evenings were sold as 7.30pm, doors open at 7pm; no mention of support. Now I doubt anyone expected the show to start before 8pm; but a 9.45 start meant that some people had to leave very early to catch last trains, and many left before the end - or had to rush off without getting autographs.
As one thirty year fan commented "I came on the train as it saved worrying about finding somewhere in Camden to park - but if only I'd known, I would've driven in"
Another disgruntled fan chipped in: "Let's face it, they couldn't organise a p***up in a brewery!"
At least the doorman had the decency to tell us - so we had the option of popping back to the Cobden Arms for another fine pint and three England goals, without missing a minute of the concert - and a treble whammy for me, as I live a stone's throw from Camden.
