A Classic Concert: Cat Stevens – Tea For The Tillerman Live (50th Anniversary)
A Classic Concert: Cat Stevens – Tea For The Tillerman Live, originally released for the first time ever on DVD on 28 July 2008 to coincide with Yusuf’s 60th birthday, is now being re-promoted to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the artist’s definitive fourth album that made him an international star.
This music DVD, which is bound to enthrall and entertain, includes the delightfully animated short film by Cat Stevens entitled Teaser And The Firecat, with wacky narration by Spike Milligan.
Cat Stevens’ recording career spanned 12 years from October 1966 to November 1978. In all, he recorded 11 albums but his most creative and interesting period was probably while he was recording Tea For The Tillerman and Teaser And The Firecat during 1970 and 1971.
With the hit single Wild World entering the US charts in 1971, Cat Stevens flew to America where this intimate concert, which features the best of his repertoire at the time, was recorded. This live rare classic performance in its simplicity, captures the warmth of his studio recordings but with even more passion and depth. In 2020, maybe people will hear these songs in a different way than they did before.
After all these years, it is good to be reminded of Cat Stevens’ original and creative talents and the huge contribution he made to the singer/songwriter genre. Favourites such as Hard Headed Woman, Longer Boats, Wild World, Where Do The Children Play?, On The Road To Find Out and of course, Moonshadow, are bound to please the millions of fans of this artist.
