We are pleased to announce that the first and fifth volumes of the Al Stewart
songbook, 24 P/Carrots and Between the Wars are now once again available
These songbooks, produced in cooperation with Al Stewart and Chapman
management, are the only authorized publications to include all the words and music
from Al's albums 24 P/Carrots and Between the Wars.
Al's songs are presented in fully-detailed piano-vocal arrangements by Blake Hodgetts,
which capture many of the nuances of the original recordings. Basic guitar chords
are also included. As a bonus, each song is accompanied by comments from Al regarding
the circumstances surrounding the song, tidbits on the recording process, or Al's
feelings about the number.
Other volumes of the songbook may be produced in the future, time permitting.
Volume I currently contains the following tracks from 24 P/Carrots:
Murmansk Run/Ellis Island
Rocks In The Ocean
Paint By Numbers
It was my original plan to add the additional five tracks from Indian Summer to this book
and make them available in the future, with no additional registration required.
Well, maybe someday.
Volume V contains the following tracks from Between the Wars:
Night Train to Munich
The Age of Rhythm
Lindy Comes to Town
League of Notions
Life Between the Wars
Betty Boop's Birthday
Marion the Châtelaine
Joe the Georgian
Always the Cause
Laughing into 1939
The Black Danube
In addition, this book contains transcriptions of most of the guitar solos by the
incomparable Laurence Juber.
The songbooks are downloadable as PDF (Portable Document Format) files, suitable
