About Year of the Cat. Al Stewart’s signature hit from 1976, having reached No. 8 in the billboard chart. Inspired by the film Casablanca, and referring to the year found in the Vietnamese zodiac, but not in the Chinese (replaced by a rabbit – go figure). Al Stewart had/has a very unique song writing ability, which earned the title of Chief scribe of English Music. There is another way of saying any of the things you want to say, rather than rehashing someone else’s words. Year of the Cat" Track Info. Written By Peter Wood & Al Stewart. Release Date January 1, 1976. Year of the Cat Al Stewart.

Al Stewart originally wrote the lyrics after seeing. The performance by the British comedian Tony Hancock that inspired the first version of this song took place in Bournemouth, England in 1966. Hancock was very depressed, and the show was a disaster, with the comedian going to the front of the stage and addressing the audience directly and pouring out his soul. In Al Stewart: The True Life Adventures of a Folk Rock Troubadour, Stewart is quoted: "He came on stage and he said 'I don't want to be here. I'm just totally pissed off with my life. Steve from ColoradoI first heard of Al Stewart in 1976 or 7 when my Vietnamese girl friend gave me the Year of he Cat album. I eventually married a different Vietnamese girl who passed away. Both girls and their families were refugees from the first wave.

FWIW: The PDO pressing may well date to 1987 but "Year of the Cat" was one of RCA's launch titles on Compact Disc. That's why the booklet has 1982 copyright dates on it.
