Time passages – Al Stewart

Aunque el escocés Al Stewart inició su carrera discográfica en la segunda mitad de los 60, fue precisamente la segunda mitad, pero de la siguiente década, la de los 70, que vería sus mayores éxitos en las listas de Norteamérica.

A pesar de que su disco anterior, Year of the cat, fue un rotundo éxito, casi difícil de superar, con el que se abrió muchos mercados discográficos, el que le sucedió, titulado Time passages lo mantuvo en los puestos altos de las listas de EEUU.

El que era ya su octavo álbum de estudio, que como Year of the cat, continuaba bajo la producción de Alan Parsons, fue lanzado a principios de otoño de 1978 y alcanzó el top-10 del Billboard 200.

El single con mayor éxito extraído del disco fue el homónimo al mismo. Time passages alcanzaba el número 7 del Hot 100, la semana del 9 de diciembre de 1978 (Le Freak, de Chic dominaba la lista), permaneciendo dos semanas en la misma posición.

Aún mayor éxito tuvo en el Hot Adult Contemporary Singles, donde permaneció en el número 1 durante 10 semanas, desde noviembre de 1978 hasta enero de 1979, batiendo todos los registros de permanencia en la cumbre de esta lista (la Easy Listening chart, como se llamó hasta 1979) en la década de los 70.

Se ha recordado siempre por su famosa última linea: “Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight”.

  1. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having problems locating

  2. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues
    of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive
    content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a
    lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any methods to help
    stop content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

  3. Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you
    have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog
    soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone
    with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  4. Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?

    My website discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I
    feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send
    me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Great blog by the way!

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
