Default Al Stewart in Stevenson, WA

Hey all, I don't know if there are Al Stewart fans here, but I will be attending his concert at Stevenson, Washington USA, a place I've never been to but is not that far from here. I really enjoy Al's music, highlighting history, pop,folk. He is my second favorite behind Gord.

I'm a fan. I've seen him twice live and he does a very good show. The last time I saw him was 08 in Germany and met him afterwards. Great gig.

Enjoy!!
FYI Al Stewart was at one time a resident of Bournemouth (now in Dorset England)
and met up with a local singing hopeful named Anthony Blackburn, in fact
"Glasgow native Al Stewart began his career playing guitar in Tony Blackburn's band the Sabres" (Tony went on to become a very successful radio Disc Jockey initially on the Pirate Stations Radios Caroline and London then became the very first person on air on the new
Radio One in 1967 (when Auntie Beeb finally woke up to the fact that what the great unwashed youth of the UK really wanted was pop music wall to wall.
The very first record that he played thereon was "Flowers in The Rain by The Move
 
The funny thing is that I started drafting this convinced that it was Build Me Up Buttercup
by the Foundations and for which I had the ideal punchline "Jenney should volunteer to perform this as part of the Jam Sandwich jollifications in a few weeks!!
I did buy Al's fine Vinyl album Time Passages (i stiil have the copy which is now near the top of the pile of favourite old vinyls waiting for my setting up a digitisation production line

Neville Judd wrote a book called "Al Stewart, The true life adventures of a folk rock troubadour," which has a chapter on Bournemouth. The chapter heading is " In which Al joins a succession of Bournemouth beat groups before coming under the spell of Bob Dylan and moving up to London and the Soho folk scene." By coincidence, when Al played at Stevenson, he did mention his early days, in the mid-1960's, the groups The Sabres and The Shadows, Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, etc. Here's the set list for his Stevenson, WA concert; he went on to Seattle the next night, accompanied by Dave Nachmanoff & Michael Lindauer.
House of Clocks
Flying Sorcery
Antarctica
On the Border
Dark & Rolling Sea
Katherine of Oregon
Time Passages
Warren Harding
Midas Shadow
Night train to Munich
Palace of Versailles
Gina in the King's Road
