I’ve been obsessed with Al Stewart recently. Dude put out a bunch of mildly psychedelic, soft rock albums in the mid-70s with curious lyrical themes and production so light sometimes it feels like the entire record just floated away. He had one major hit — “Year of the Cat” — and despite his substantial catalog it’s always the best place to start listing to Stewart tunes. The four word hook locks in melodically just when you need it somehow keeping the song unimposingly upbeat. Get your evening started with this tune and a bottle of wine and you’ll be ready to tackle any Saturday night plans with relaxed ease.
I don’t have a driver’s license but you can bet your life that I would 100% be riding dirty to this tune. Alas, tonight’s house party will have to suffice. The good news is that means I don’t have to drive drunk.
What I’m trying to say is, “turn it up.” I might have to start checking out some more of JWLS’ music.
