Al Stewart - Year Of The Cat 45th Anniversary Edition

 



"Year of the Cat" es el sencillo que da título al álbum del año 1975 Year of the Cat. Esta canción fue escrita por el cantante y compositor Al Stewart; el álbum se grabó en Abbey Road Studios, Londres, en enero de 1975 por el ingeniero de sonido y músico inglés Alan Parsons, y se publicó en julio de 1975. La canción se caracteriza por sus largas secciones instrumentales; de hecho, en la versión del álbum, de 6'40", más de cuatro minutos de la canción se dedican a temas instrumentales, incluyendo un solo de piano, guitarra acústica, guitarra eléctrica distorsionada y saxofón. El tema ‘Year of the cat’ de Al Stewart trata de la imagen de un turista que se encuentra, fugazmente, con una hermosa mujer en un mercado. Lejos de que todo quede ahí, deciden pasar la noche juntos. Cuando llega la mañana siguiente, este hombre se da cuenta de que ha perdido el bus de regreso, así como el ticket. Así pues, tendrá que quedarse junto a esa preciosa mujer. Es más, existen numerosas referencias tanto a actores como a películas. Por ese mismo motivo, parece que estamos ante una auténtica fantasía sobre diversos temas de varias películas. El hecho de que se llame ‘Year of the cat’ es que fue escrita en 1975 y, ese año, en el zodiaco de Vietnam fue el Año del Gato. ¿Y si el protagonista de esta historia estaba en Vietnam? No está confirmado, pero no sería ningún tipo de locura. Estamos ante un conjunto de guiños que muy pocos tuvieron en cuenta pero que, desde luego, ha logrado marcar la diferencia.

"Year of the Cat" is the title track to the 1975 album Year of the Cat. This song was written by singer and songwriter Al Stewart; the album was recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London, in January 1975 by English sound engineer and musician Alan Parsons, and was released in July 1975. The song is characterized by its long instrumental sections; in fact, in the 6'40 "version of the album, more than four minutes of the song are devoted to instrumental themes, including a piano solo, acoustic guitar, distorted electric guitar and saxophone. The theme ‘Year of the cat’ by Al Stewart is about the image of a tourist who is, fleetingly, with a beautiful woman in a market. Far from it all, they decide to spend the night together. When he arrives the next morning, this man realizes that he has missed the return bus as well as the ticket. So, he will have to stay with that beautiful woman. Moreover, there are numerous references to both actors and films. For the same reason, it seems that we are dealing with a real fantasy on various themes from various films. The fact that it is called ‘Year of the cat’ is that it was written in 1975 and that year in the Vietnam zodiac was the Year of the Cat. What if the protagonist of this story was in Vietnam? It is not confirmed, but it would not be any kind of madness. We are facing a set of winks that very few took into account but, of course, has managed to make a difference.
