Music on My Mind

Al Stewart, "Katherine of Oregon". Stewart is an excellent lyricist; this one, in part because it's simultaneously both very simple and very clever in its lyrical technique, is easily his most charming.

    Very nice. The wink in the title reminds me of "Selfish Jean" by Travis, which I just discovered and am still smiling about. As for Al Stewart, I remember all those decades ago when "The Year of the Cat" was on the radio hourly, I was taken with a tune from the same album that they only played a handful of times in my neighborhood: "On The Border."
