"Roads To Moscow" is one of Stewart's epic songs, he is reputed to have read forty books researching it. Stewart's management tells us, "the narrator is a Russian soldier who fought for Russia, but was captured briefly by the Germans." Containing some intricate acoustic guitar work, it is one of his most requested tracks.
The studio recording of "Roads To Moscow" is a full eight minutes in length, while an excellent version, running to 8 minutes 17 seconds, appears on the second volume of Oceans Of Delphi. This is a three volume unofficial CD set of live recordings made between 1970 and 1996, and released through the UK fan club in 1996 by Stewart's official biographer Neville Judd.
