Al Stewart / Year of the Cat box set

3CD+DVD box set • Features Alan Parsons remaster and 5.1 mix

Al Stewart / Year of the Cat deluxe edition

Esoteric Recordings follow up last month’s 24 Carrots reissue with an anniversary box set of Al Stewart‘s 1976 album Year of the Cat.

Scheduled for release in March next year, this 45th anniversary edition box set (taking a leaf out of the Parlophone/Bowie playbook) includes three CDs and a DVD and features a new remaster by original producer and engineer Alan Parsons. Alan has used the first generation master tapes for this process.

Bonus material includes a new mix of ‘Belsize Blues’, an outtake from the original sessions, and two CDs featuring a previously unreleased gig in Seattle in October 1976 (the same month the album was issued in America).

The DVD features a new 5.1 surround sound mix (also by Parsons) and a hi-res version of the new remaster.

The box set includes an illustrated 68-page book, with notes featuring an exclusive interview with Al Stewart, and four postcards and a replica poster.

A two-CD deluxe edition will also be issued which includes the remastered album and a single bonus disc featuring nine of the 15 live tracks.

Year of the Cat will be released on 26 March 2021.
