AllMusic Review by

The second simple box of Al Stewart albums rounds up five latter-day records from the '80s and '90s: 24 Carrots, Live at the Roxy Los Angeles 1991, Russians and Americans, Last Days of the Century, and Famous Last Words. Apart from 24 Carrots, which generated the adult contemporary staple "Midnight Rocks," there aren't any hits here, but each of these well-tailored records speaks to Stewart's eccentric charms, so for the converted fan -- i.e., the ones who know all the albums in the Original Albums Series box -- this is an easy, affordable way to dig deeper.
