Al Stewart: Terminal Eyes

From his album "Past, Present and Future". Sleeve by Hipgnosis.

This one figures into the mix we did back in December. It's a nice inoffensive Walrusesque number, good for a mid-afternoon coffee break. Featuring copious use of analog tape delay on the vocals, sort of like Peter Green's Just For You.

Thanks for posting this, as well, along with the Don Henley. This is an album that sort of slipped off my radar. I'm a big fan of the way he used the orchestra. Thinking about a Great Strings In Rock series; Al would have to get the nod (if nothing else than for 'Year Of The Cat'). While I'm at it, thank you again for the link. I had almost 900 visitors last month and your referrals went a long toward that. Many thanks.

No probs, Fusion. Glad you enjoyed the Al S. and the Don H. Great strings in rock would have to include Rick Wakeman's mellotron parts on Space Oddity, right???
