Cat Stevens Tea for the Tillerman Vinyl 2LP + 5CD + Blu-ray Box Set

50th Anniversary Super Deluxe Vinyl 2LP + 5CD + Blu-ray Box Set featuring New 2020 Remix and Remaster, New Interpretations, Demos/Outtakes/Alt-Versions and Live Performances Plus 2020 Mix HD Audio!

Following the widely acclaimed release of Tea for the Tillerman 2, December 2020 will see Yusuf / Cat Stevens celebrate the two albums that first established him as his generation's premier acoustic troubadour and then fired him into international superstardom. Released only seven months apart in 1970, Mona Bone Jakon and Tea for the Tillerman will be celebrated as 50th anniversary Super Deluxe Collector's Edition box sets. Mona Bone Jakon will include 24 previously unreleased songs, and Tea for the Tillerman will feature a further 21 unreleased tracks alongside a host of other rarities.

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. By looking inward with eyes wide open he discovered truths that he was able to present to the world with compelling sincerity through his unique and spellbinding gift for songwriting. 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. This soul-searching masterpiece felt simultaneously like a deliberate reaction to what Cat saw in the world as well as his own struggle for answers, and would continue to resonate through countless generations to come.

The Tea for the Tillerman Super Deluxe box set features a new 2020 remaster, also completed at Abbey Road Studios and overseen by original album producer Paul Samwell-Smith, and mix, of the original 1970 Island Records multitrack master tape, overseen by Yusuf and engineer David Hefti. The 2020 Mix also appears on the vinyl LP format which is exclusive to this box set. CD3 features the newly released Tea for the Tillerman² – Yusuf has chosen to include it here in order to present the most complete edition of the original album, showing how these songs are as pertinent today as they were when written over 50 years ago.

CD4 includes demos, outtakes and alternate versions, including two previously unreleased tracks, while CD5 features 25 live performances - 5 previously unreleased tracks recorded Live At The Troubadour, 4 previously unreleased live performances from the December 8, 1970 show at Fillmore East, and 6 previously unreleased live from British, French and German TV performances over 1970/71. The box set also includes the previously unreleased "Can This Be Love?;" originally scheduled to appear on the album, the song was written by Cat along with "Father and Son" for a proposed musical project "Revolussia" in 1969.

The Super Deluxe box set is rounded out with a Blu-ray featuring HD 24bit/96khz audio of the 2020 Mix, as well as 8 previously unreleased live TV performances, 7 tracks performed live at KCNET studios, Los Angeles, and the official "Father and Son" video. Also housed in a card envelope within the box is a "Pick Up A Good Book" bookmark, a Yusuf / Cat Stevens designed "Miles From Nowhere" print, a reproduction handwritten lyric sheet for "Miles From Nowhere," a fold-out "Live From The Troubadour 1970" poster, and a Tea for the Tillerman sticker.
