'These albums are a part of my history, my views of life and the lifestyle of my generation, so it is important that they are documented here in this book.' - Yusuf / Cat Stevens
On 24th April 1970, Cat Stevens released his pivotal album, Mona Bone Jakon. It was to be the first in a trio of albums, including Tea for the Tillerman and Teaser and the Firecat, that over the course of two years marked a momentous change in direction for Stevens. Iconic songs such as 'Lady D'Arbanville', 'Where Do The Children Play?', 'Father and Son', 'Wild World', 'Peace Train', 'Morning Has Broken' and 'Moonshadow' were all recorded at this time, tracks that continue to resonate with audiences today.
Marking the 50th anniversary of these three ground-breaking albums, Cat Stevens, 1970-'71 is the official chronicle of the period featuring lyrics, photographs, illustrations, and the first-hand recollections of Yusuf/Cat Stevens.
