Cat Stevens - Mona Bone Jakon 50th Anniversary CD
Cat Stevens Mona Bone Jakon 50th Anniversary CD
Though previous releases showcased his sticky burr of a voice and flashes of his songwriting brilliance, it was on Mona Bone that Stevens became disillusioned enough with the music industry to write more deeply introspective and personal songs. All in all, Mona Bone Jakon is a delight, and because it never achieved the Top 40 radio ubiquity of later albums, it sounds fresh and distinct.
With the original release of 'Mona Bone Jakon' came a new sound that forged Cat Stevens' signature sound. Produced by Paul Samwell-Smith, the album features "Lady D'Arbanville" as well as fan favorites "I Wish, I Wish" and "Maybe You're Right". "Katmandu" features Peter Gabriel on flute! 50 years on, Mona Bone Jakon still sound as fresh as the day it was recorded. Presented here as a brand new 2020 remastered version on CD as well as in a new 2020 Mix (by David Hefti).
