About Year of the Cat. Al Stewart’s signature hit from 1976, having reached No. 8 in the billboard chart. Inspired by the film Casablanca, and referring to the year found in the Vietnamese zodiac, but not in the Chinese (replaced by a rabbit – go figure). Al Stewart had/has a very unique song writing ability, which earned the title of Chief scribe of English Music. There is another way of saying any of the things you want to say, rather than rehashing someone else’s words. Year of the Cat" Track Info. Written By Peter Wood & Al Stewart. Release Date January 1, 1976. Year of the Cat Al Stewart.

Al Stewart originally wrote the lyrics after seeing. The performance by the British comedian Tony Hancock that inspired the first version of this song took place in Bournemouth, England in 1966. Hancock was very depressed, and the show was a disaster, with the comedian going to the front of the stage and addressing the audience directly and pouring out his soul. In Al Stewart: The True Life Adventures of a Folk Rock Troubadour, Stewart is quoted: "He came on stage and he said 'I don't want to be here. I'm just totally pissed off with my life. Steve from ColoradoI first heard of Al Stewart in 1976 or 7 when my Vietnamese girl friend gave me the Year of he Cat album. I eventually married a different Vietnamese girl who passed away. Both girls and their families were refugees from the first wave.

Al Stewart had found his voice on Past, Present & Future and found his sound on Modern Times. He then perfected it all on 1976's Year of the Cat, arguably his masterpiece  . Stewart is detached from his music, but only in the sense that he gives this album a stylish elegance, and Parsons is his perfect foil, giving the music a rich, panoramic sweep that mimics Stewart's globe-trotting songs.
