Cat Stevens

2-8-12             Cat Stevens

Folksinger Tom Rush born 1941, HM vocalist Vince Neil born 1961; Rush over Neil (except in Canada).  That’s a joke, son.

The arc of work I am recommending today is from roughly 1970 to 1978, for Mr. Cat Stevens.  You shouldn’t have any trouble finding any of these albums – though non-US pressings may be hard to find anymore.  From the above list of titles, you should be able to assemble your own “best of” that would set easily with any other singer / songwriter works of the 1970’s.  The only one I don’t have as a CD is his final album as “Cat Stevens” – “Back To Earth” – fact is, I can’t name a single song on it!  I have included both volumes of “Greatest Hits” as each volume has unique material.

Mobile Fidelity is presently releasing stereo SA-CD’s of his most well-known titles; I’d go for ‘em, if I found ‘em inexpensively – or if any were multi-channel releases…
