Al Stewart (born in Glasgow, Scotland on 5 September 1945) is a British songwriter and musician. He is best known for his 1976 single Year of the Cat and its 1978 follow-up Time Passages (both produced by Alan Parsons). Stewart's inspiration for his songs primarily comes from the past; indeed, he is credited with creating his own genre, "historical folk rock". At one time in his life, Stewart took guitar lessons from King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp.

    drifting into time passages

    Go and tell Lord Grenville that the tide is on the turn
    It's time to haul the anchor up and leave the land astern
    We'll be gone before the dawn returns
    Like voices on the wind.
    Go and tell Lord Grenville that our dreams have run aground

    And your overnight bag at your feet
    You're looking down on the tropical trees
    While the Spanish maids pick up the sheets
    Conquistador in search of gold
