Album: Down in the Cellar (2000)

Songfacts®:

  • The 4th song on the Millennium year concept album Down in the Cellar runs to 4 minutes 36 seconds and is an Al Stewart solo composition. If it sounds somewhat sad that is because it is unnecessarily enigmatic - something for which this troubadour is not exactly unknown.

    Although Al married relatively late, his personal life has been just as happy as his professional life after he shook off the ghost of his first love Mandi, who haunts many of his early songs. And there is nothing secret about his wine cellar, in which he takes great pride. >>
