Song of the Day: Al Stewart, “Time Passages”

Scottish singer-songwriter and folk-rock musician Al Stewart was born on this day in 1945. “Time Passages” is the title track from his 1978 album; it was a follow-up to “Year of the Cat” and reached #7b in the US in 1978. It also spent ten weeks atop the Easy Listening chart that year.
