CD Reviews

One of the finest and yet underated live albums recorded
06/01/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Throughout the pop era Al Stewart has always been overlooked by mainstream audiences. Admittedly, his mystical sometimes bizarre lyric content is not what you typically find on radio. Yet with critical acclaim, Al Stewart has never been received enthusiastically by the mainstream. "Live at the Roxy" shows why he should be. This album was originally released as "Indian Summer Live" in 1981. It stood out at the time because of it's intimate "club atmoshere" when other artists were trying to capture the "arena energy". Al Stewart is a live musician. His work is best performed in front of an an audience versus in a studio. Live at the Roxy should be a standard for other live albums. The musicianship is impecable, including guitarist Peter White. The recording sounds as if it was recorded in the late 90s versus the early 80s. I am sure you are familiar with Year Of The Cat and Time Passages. These songs take major steps forward when performed on this album. Do not overlook the other tracks such as Running Man and On The Border. This re-release is long overdue. This is a live concert that you can lose yourself in. It creates a "you are there" feeling. Isn't that what live albums are supposed to do? Other artists desiring to record a live album should take note of AL STEWART LIVE AT THE ROXY."
This was the last gasp in America...

"Riding the wave of popularity in America following "Year of the Cat", Live at the Roxy was Al's last stand in America. His next release was three years away, but luckily, Live at the Roxy gave listeners a lot for their money. This album captures Al at the peak with Shot in the Dark and Peter White backing him. This album brings all his best to his fans along with great asides and songs lost in the glare of "Cat" fame. Here too is "Rihad" and a look at Al's great talent as a story teller par excellance!(The orignal double album included one studio side of great songs -- these are now available as special additions to 24 K/Parrots.)"
An excellent live album

"This is a must-have for all Al fans. The quality of the recording is excellent, almost studio-like, crisp and clean, but distinct from the studio recordings."
