True Life Adventures of a Folk Troubadour

"Al Stewart emerged from the sixties folk scene to achieve stardom in 1976 with top ten single and platinum album, "Year of the Cat".

Along the way, Al bought his first guitar from future Police guitarist Andy Summers and took guitar lessons from Robert Fripp, before Dylan's music inspired him to write his own songs and relocate to London, where the coffee bar folk scene was blooming.

  

He shared a flat with Paul Simon in London'd East End in 1965, befriended Sandy Denny, Jackson C. Frank and other folk-scene luminaries and worked with John Martyn, Jimmy Page, Yoko Ono and Fairport Convention, while singing finely crafted songs about love, loss, Napoleon and Nostradamus."
