New 2020 remaster celebrates landmark folk-pop album's 50th anniversary!

Featuring "Father & Son," "Wild World" and "Where Do The Children Play"

With Mona Bone Jakon and Tea for the Tillerman Yusuf / Cat Stevens asserted himself both lyrically and musically as a true artist in the most profound sense. His work during this period would go on to transcend its own era and stay relevant for generations to come. These two albums truly stand as a rite of passage for all songwriters seeking to learn how to present their intimate experiences to the external world, and essential listening to all lovers of great music.

Tea for the Tillerman followed Mona Bone Jakon by only seven months, confirming the sensational rebirth of Cat Stevens as a spiritual seeker capable of drawing from a seemingly bottomless well of imaginative inspiration. Here, his new-found gentle and folk-oriented style was artfully weaved with urgent, morally demanding questions beneath bewitching melodies. The album is also noteworthy for having four of its songs "Where Do the Children Play?," "On the Road to Find Out," "Tea for the Tillerman" and "Miles from Nowhere" featured in Hal Ashby and Colin Higgins' 1971 black comedy Harold and Maude.

"Cat Stevens tends to be lumped in with the early-'70s singer-songwriter school led by James Taylor and Carole King, but he actually fits in rather neatly with such wistful English contemporaries as Nick Drake, Syd Barrett, and Donovan. Tea for the Tillerman's 'Wild World,' 'Into White,' and 'Longer Boats' indicate that he may have been a more gifted tunesmith than the lot of them." —
