Editors’ Notes

Though listed as Greatest Hits, Vol. 2, Footsteps in the Dark doesn't simply cover the years after Cat Stevens’ first volume of hits from 1975. Rather, this Vol. 2, issued in 1984, revisits Stevens’ catalog from those early-‘70s singer/songwriter days and includes such lesser-known tunes as “I Want to Live in a Wigwam,” “Trouble," and “(I Never Wanted) To Be a Star," plus one genuine minor hit single, “The Hurt.” It ignores such late-‘70s hits as “(Remember the Days of The) Old Schoolyard” and “Was Dog a Doughnut” for a deeper look at the Tea for the Tillerman album and songs like “Where Do the Children Play?,” “On the Road to Find Out," and “Father and Son.” Best of all is “The Wind,” from Teaser and the Firecat; it's less than two minutes and captures all the beauty inherent in Stevens’ work. 

Customer Reviews

Harold + Maude = Beauty

Let's talk about the best movie ever, and the best song ever "If you want to sing out, sing out" Harold is the coolest cat around, and Maude is just such a free spirit, together they are the most fabulous duo around. Best Scene: When Harold looks directly at the camera and grins mischieviously.

My favorite first album

The sweetest and most beautiful album from Cat Stevens including two songs from the film Maude and Harold, which is how I came to know Cat Stevens in the first place and the reason I bought this album (as a record in the 80s). On the record sleeve it said that this was his last album before he converted to islam and that his new name was Yusuf something. I still know most of these songs by heart and sing them often. They are like little childhood pieces giving comfort whenever it's needed. Yes, they seem naive and innocent and in a sense they are which is also why they are so soothing, I guess. This album is definitely a must listen for Cat Stevens fans.

found at last

yes i first heard cat from harold and maude i bought this as a cassette back in the day and back in the 80's lost it , and until now could not find a c.d. version , i dont care for the description of how these are lesser songs i always liked the intensity that this album emitted.

Cat Stevens, born Steven Demetre Georgiou, was the son of a Swedish mother and a Greek father who ran a restaurant in London. He became interested in folk music and rock & roll in his teens while attending Hammersmith College and in 1965 began performing under the name Steve Adams. Mike Hurst, a former member of the folk-pop group the Springfields, who had become a record producer, heard him and took him into a recording studio to cut his composition "I Love My Dog."
