He is still as magnificent as ever!!

Al Stewart was always my hero when I was 12 in 1977; His music and lyrics so far removed of the mainstay of that era, so unique and thought evoking. I, a musician to be (in the 80's and since) was greatly inspired by Al Stewart both in my writing and style. I was fortunate enough to catch Al Stewart in concert in St. Louis Missouri in October 2010. I went in having no idea what the presentation or format would be. I was surprised at this unplugged arrangement with a fantastic guitarist named Dave Nachmanoff on stage with him (just the 2 of them until the 2nd set when they brought on a bassist). The performance was outstanding, everyone loved it and was entranced by the music of these two gentlemen. Most of the songs I'd never heard but Al admitted on stage he wanted it that way. I bought the cd "Uncorked-Al Stewart Live with Dave Nachmanoff" after the show, which I was fortunate enough to be first in line to get Al's autograph when I blurted out like I was 12 again "you are a hero and have been my hero ever since I was 12" he politely replied " Hero? well that might be exaggerating it a bit". He was very welcoming and unpretentious. He autographed my cd and it stayed in my cd player ever since. I listened to it over and over again and became more familiar with the songs- outstanding work. If that ever is available on here you should get it; If they ever come to concert near you go- you will be mesmerized too. A true great poet, musician and artist of our time. Paul Schaffrin
