Music Books [Issue #22]
: Al Stewart: The True Like Adventures of a Folk Rock Troubadour
By Dean Truitt


Though Glasgow, Scotland’s Al Stewart is most famous for his international hit in 1976, “Year of the Cat,” he has lived a colorful life and career that began in the mid-‘60s. Inspired by the early protest songs of Bob Dylan, Stewart began writing his own material and went on to sell more albums than any folk artist except Dylan and Paul Simon.

Not only does the tome provide invaluable cultural insight into London’s swinging folk scene, it also Simon and Garfunkel’s early years. Some interesting anecdotes involving fellow companions: buying one of his first guitars from future Police guitarist Andy Summers, sharing a London flat with Paul Simon, working with Jimmy Page on an early failed single titled “The Elf,” a professional friendship with Yoko Ono, among others. Ono recounts a story of Stewart’s kindess and support of her career when she was merely an unknown avant garde filmmaker. The book continues throughout Stewart’s recent years and updates the reader of his family life, hobbies, and fairly active recording and touring schedule. Judd’s research includes firsthand interviews with Fairport Convention’s Richard Thompson and Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page.
