iTunes Editors’ Notes

Though Cat Stevens is best represented by the albums he made—Mona Bone Jakon, Tea for the Tillerman, Teaser and the Firecat, Catch Bull at Four—he also scored several key hit singles in the singer/songwriter era of the early '70s. Obviously, a 12-track album is only an introduction to the man’s works, and other grander collections feature larger cross-sections of material—but Greatest Hits, released in the summer of 1975, became one of the most commonly found Stevens records in casual LP collections. “Wild World,” “Hard Headed Woman,” “Moonshadow,” “Peace Train,” “Father and Son,” “Morning Has Broken,” and “Another Saturday Night” fill out the list of obvious songs in need of inclusion, while other singles—“Oh Very Young,” “Two Fine People,” “Ready,” and “Sitting”—are among the hits that have become a tad more obscure over the years. The inclusion of “Can’t Keep It In” is particularly interesting, since it’s one of Stevens’ earliest rallying cries for leaving the industry behind.

Customer Reviews

I'm twelve and I LOVE Cat Stevens!!

Call me a nerd, but I just think he's INCREDIBLE. My favorite track by far is "Moonshadow" but eveything on here is pretty amazing, like "Wild World" and "Peace Train." And really people, who cares if he converted to Islam? Islam's not a bad religion! Just those insane terrorists who drop bombs "in the name of Allah" have put a bad name on it. If we really took the time to understand this beautiful culture, we would realize that Muslims are actually gentle, good people who simply practice a religion that we know little about. I am quite proud to say one of my best friends is Muslim and she's the nicest person I've ever met. I hope Cat Stevens keeps doing what he does best-making beautiful music!

A well-done Cat Stevens Anthology

"Greatest Hits" albums tend to be rehashes, recollections, or re-marketing of existing music. "Cat Stevens: Greatest Hits" is an exception. This album is not only a collection of wonderful music, it is well-ordered, and well selected. The general flow of the album is comfortable, with excellent transitions such as "Father and Son", followed by "Sitting" and "Morning Has Broken." Diehard Cat Stevens fans will find this album comforting and enjoyable. New Cat Stevens listeners will become diehard fans after listening to "Greatest Hits"

Wow

Wow. When my mom got this CD I rolled my eyes but then I listened to it and I really liked it. I am really surprised because normally my mom only likes old fogey music. It's really good and I am only 13.
