Al Stewart - Past, Present And Future (1992) Retail CD
I first heard this album in 1974 and I've been a fan of Al Stewart's music ever since.
The best known tracks are "Roads To Moscow" and "Nostradamus" which both got some FM air play in the 70s and established Al Stewart's name among a small cult following before his 1976 album "Year Of The Cat" earned him a Top 10 spot.
Al Stewart is a great songwriter who always comes up with great lyrics. He also has a strong interest in historical subjects and that interest often finds its way into his songs.
"Nostradamus" is about the 16th French seer whose visions of the future have been the subject ofmore… countless books, articles and documentaries.
"Roads To Moscow" is about a nameless Russian soldier in WWII who is captured by the Germans, escapes, makes his way back to Russian lines and is treated as a spy and/or a traitor because he was captured and survived. The Soviet political commissars send him to a prison camp in Siberia. It's a great song; read your own interpretations into the story.
Bottom line: this album is a musical gem which never achieved the recognition it deserved. It deserves your attention; buy it.
