I remember hearing "Roads to Moscow" for the first time back in my freshman year in college when it was released (approx. 1973-74)as part of the album "Past, Present and Future". It blew me a way then and I have been an Al Stewart fan ever since. At least one third of his songs are historical perspectives and range from tribal Scots legends to the fall of Constantinople (sp?). The flip side of "Past, Present and Future" has a track called "Nostradamus" which is absolutely haunting. He's one of those artists that never made it to the top level but really is worth a listen!

It's an amazing song and Al Stewart is one of the more evocative artists out there, but to be honest I couldnt finish watching this.
It wasnt a terrible vid, but for this song it just didn't have the weight I thought was warranted.
There are a few other game based versions of this, but those also don't come near to doing this song justice either, in my opinion.

Saturday Night, circa 1974...

Gather at my friend's house...

We sample some herb...Drink a beer or two...

Put on Steely Dan...

Eat one of his wife's fantastic meals...

Put Warren Zevon, Al Stewart on the stereo...

Sample more herb...

Put Pink Floyd on the stereo...

Watch Monty Python...

Sample more herb...

Watch Saturday Night Live...

Everyone else goes sound asleep and I go home...

Pretty much covers the years 1973 to 1976. We did this practically every week. We never knew that millions of other people were doing the same exact thing until years later.

I remember being in a state where I thought my friend's daughter had written "Cat In The Hat". He was one of the very earliest people I knew that made a living in IT. He used to bring home computers that covered the entire dining room table and play race cars and lunar landing. We would gawk in amazement as the computer directed the printer to draw a picture. We would play 3-D checkers. He was a decent pianist and would play classical, jazz, whatever. He was maybe the most intelligent persons I have ever known personally.

We all went our seperate ways around '77. One night around '82 he walked to the 17th tee on our local golf course and poured a can of gasoline over his head and lit it up.

Thinking of Al Stewart revived all of this. Al Stewart was a genius. You never even hear him on oldies stations.

A pity.

All of it.

Very good.

I've seen better video making, but the editing was quite sharp and the whole package very enjoyable.

A good music video. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Still waiting for one done to The Gates of Delirium from Relayer, a definite War song.
