This is a one minute sample of the song "The Eyes of Nostradamus" by Al Stewart from the CD Past, Present and Future. Al Stewart, of "Year of the Cat" fame, wrote this little known ballad years ago, and until recently, it was only available on vinyl. This ambitious concept album by the veteran English folkie attempts the impossible: a chronological evocation of 20th century Western history, mingling fact, legend and fantasy and culminating with dire prophecies of Nostradamus The Nostradamus track is a long song, nearly ten minutes, and with its psychedelic, urgent guitar strumming and phasing in and out of song segments, it captures the spirit of Nostradamus perfectly. The ballad mentions a number of Nostradamus' prophecies from the past up to the Seventies.
