Al may not have had a big radio hit in a while, but there are still people doing cover versions of his work. Over the years I've seen everything from straight up versions to a kind of rap thing modeled on "Year of the Cat".  The most recent one I've seen is called "Clifden in the Rain" by Liam Merriman on his "Sing Street" album.  http://www.liammerriman.com

Young people still are finding Al's work touches them. Here are some links to a  very impressive 10 year old playing songs from "Down in the Cellars" on piano. http://www.youtube.com/user/eaglelake1000#p/u/4/VFAaHRT6P_A http://www.youtube.com/user/eaglelake1000#p/u/1/Z5BIFeCKChQ http://www.youtube.com/user/eaglelake1000#p/u/5/wN2W8wZSMP0 -- Kim

If you saw the Dateline "Children of the Harvest" program on July 17 you also heard Laurence Juber on guitar.  He did the music for the program.  The CD is available from Laurence's web site or Acoustic Music Resource. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/38312193/ns/dateline_nbc/t/america-now-children-harvest/ -- Kim

An Al fan found this little bit of "news" that is kind of interesting.  A twelve year old girl was doing a project for school, and she discovered that ALL the US Presidents except VanBuren are related to one English King.  They're all "cousins" of a sort.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ta6PxbEH_3A
