A nice copy of a scarce (and pretty good) Al Stewart LP.
Background: Released in 1974, Modern Times was the sixth album by Al Stewart.
The album reached #30 on the U.S. album chart, but did not chart in the UK.
Surely the title is a bit of an allusion to the Past, Present and Future of its predecessor, but Modern Times also brought Al Stewart into the present, establishing his classic sound of folky narratives and Lennonesque melodies, all wrapped up in a lush, layered production from Alan Parsons. …This skill is apparent throughout Modern Times, and is married to a sound that is its equivalent, making this an exquisite pop-prog gem.
