Yes, "Year of the Cat", "Time Passages" had a great sound. Alan Parsons produced those records. He and Al Stewart were a great combo.
I would say one way in which Al Stewart and GL are similar is...

Does anyone else really like "Baby, It's Alright" from IYCRMM. That's a hard one to get out of your head. I think Chris Isaac must have. Even though they are different song styles I always think...

Summerside of Life has a slightly controversial air to it in my opinion. "If you saw him now, you'd wonder why he would cry the whole day long"--Lightfoot himself said this song was about boys going...

I love Ghosts of Cape Horn, but I had a funny reaction to it when I first heard it. It seemed like a redo of Edmund Fitz and I thought it might have been a reach by GL for past success. But after...

My current Lightfoot favorite is "The Watchman's Gone." A bittersweet 'observational' song with a sweet mix of hobo philosophy and just the right bluesy feel. I can't hear it enough lately, as well...
