Year Of The Cat

Lyrics

On a morning from a Bogart movie
In a country where they turn back time
You go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre
Contemplating a crime

We couldn't keep enough of these on the shelves at Camelot Music when this album came out. Very popular! And rightly so.

Love this song-I was lucky enough to find the sheet music for the first sax solo-I'm working on part 2 (the end/fade)

An ethereal tune that was aired when summers lasted forever & music of this genre was all you needed to enjoy the day ~ ....and although it was over 6 minutes long...you prayed this song would never end ~ xo
Great sax, guitar, and Al Stewart. Always liked his songs and wondered why he didn't have more played on the radio.

The amazing year of the Cat...that was the apex....for that time. Never get tired of it .
i THINK OF THIS SONG AND ABOUT HALF A DOZEN OTHERS OF WHT I REMEMBER ON THE RADIO AS AN ADOLESCENT. NEVER EVER TIRE OF IT EITHER.
One of the All Time Greats!
In 1976 I was a biology student dissecting the cat that year, so it was for me the Year Of The Cat. That is how I remember this wonderful song By Al Stewart.
Wonderful sax solo
Excellent song.
As a child I heard this very big hit that, at the time, was one of the most played in clubs and radios in general. I love.
