Al Stewart’s Last Day of the Century

Sunday 2 October 2011, by Cécile Desbrun

In 1988, Tori provided backing vocals on two tracks of Al Stewart’s Last Day of the Century: the title track and “Red Toupee”. The album was re-issued in June 2007 with two bonus demo tracks that Tori co-wrote with the singer: “Ten Cents” and “Dreaming”. The album was produced by Joe Chicarelli, who was also behind Y Kant Tori Read and several musicians who played on Tori’s first ill-fated album played on this one too: Peter White, Steve Farris, Kim Bullard, Tim Landers and Vinnie Colaiuta.
