iTunes Review

Tea for the Tillerman is Cat Stevens’ fourth album and his second to appear in 1970; it includes many of his best-known songs. “But I Might Die Tonight” was featured in the 1970 film Deep End, while four other songs appeared in the 1971 classic film Harold & Maude. “Wild World” became a No. 11 hit single and one of his most covered songs, while “Where Do the Children Play?,” “Hard Headed Woman,” “Sad Lisa” (brilliantly covered by Marianne Faithfull), “Into White," and “Father and Son” are all at the core of Stevens’ deep catalog. His warm, expressive voice matched with gentle songs that expressed the difficulties of getting along in an impersonal world created a connection with young fans in similar situations. This deluxe edition includes demos for “Wild World” and “Miles from Nowhere,” along with live versions of most of the album tracks. The live tapes from Doug Weston’s legendary Troubadour club in L.A. (“Longer Boats,” “Into White”) are particularly essential, capturing Stevens in his prime.

Near perfection

It simply doesnt get any better than this. They sure don't make albums like this anymore. A classic from start to finish, not one second of filler, with one of the greatest voices you'll ever here. Absolutely timeless

One of the top albums of all time

This is one album that I listen to over and over (and over and over...) there's not one bad track here and each and every song has huge strengths that make it unique. I first heard this album as a kid in the basement with my dad and still think about him every time I hear "Father and Son". It captures the energy of youth and the patience of parenthood better then any song I have ever heard. It's my favorite song on the album and I look forward to listening to it with my son when he's in the angst ridden teen years. Every other track is amazing with "Wild World", "Where Do The Children Play", and "Miles from Nowhere" standing out as turn-it-up and sing loudly favorites. Everyone should be required to own this album!!

so be it

not sure what makes this "Deluxe", but so be it . . . . .

Cat Stevens, born Steven Demetre Georgiou, was the son of a Swedish mother and a Greek father who ran a restaurant in London.

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."
