Music That Stands the Test of Time

Reviewer: Larry H.
After recently returning to the incredible world of vinyl by laying out some serious cash for components, I had to make a few selections with which to test it. Remembering Al Stewarts, "On the Border" and "Year of the Cat" from my original vinyl collection lead me to purchase this album in 180 gram vinyl. Everything about it is 1st Class! Once I started listening, I was instantly reminded of how much I loved the richness of music from vinyl played through audiophile components. I was blown away!! Crystal clear sound that is far removed from the 1970's version of this release that I still have by the way. This is the best Al Stewart ever did, in my opinion and if you're looking to return to those days and enjoy music that sounds like fog over the water, this will do it for you! Exceptionally produced and worth every penny!!

Friday Music is becoming one of my favorite audiophile labels. Their work on this album and other classic rock form the 70's is some of the best out there. Year of the Cat is by far the best Al Stewart album in my opinion and this new pressing is well worth it.
