AL STEWART QUEENS HALL, EDINBURGH, MAY 17; live reviews.

Byline: BARRY GORDON

AL STEWART QUEENS HALL, EDINBURGH, MAY 17 ***

HE'S camp, sings songs about Charles XII of Sweden and looks like he shops at Lidl for clothes.

Still, there are worse ways to spend 90 minutes than listen to Al Stewart bash out folk-pop tunes from back in the day.

The Glasgow-born songwriter throws in some top tales and the one involving Yoko Ono, his groceries, a pounds 100 cheque from John Lennon and a porn theatre was worth the admission cash alone.

Former Wings guitarist Laurence Juber joined the singer onstage, showing off a fancy array of guitar licks, while Al can still sing like a bird at the age of 63. One thing, though, please leave the muddy-brown trousers at home next time Al, eh?
