Where do you start on this one... It is great all over. From "Year Of The Cat" to "Broadway Hotel", "Lord GrenVille" to "One Stage Before", "On The Border" to ...

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;
She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running
Like a watercolor in the rain;
Don't bother asking for explanations
She'll just tell you that she came;
In the year of the cat.

Is there a more visual set of lyrics? This, the Title Song alone is worth the price of admission for this Album. The above lyric is an example of Al Stewarts song writing skills, an underrated artist... "A year of the Cat" is his finest hour, I highly recommend .
