Al Stewart Songbook

Volume I: 24 P/Carrots

Volume V: Between the Wars

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 for download.

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.
