Cat Stevens - Tea for the Tillerman Vinyl LP
Cat Stevens Tea for the Tillerman Vinyl LP
Newly Remastered in 2020 in Celebration of Landmark Folk-Pop Album's 50th Anniversary!
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 album is also noteworthy for having four of its songs "Where Do the Children Play?," "On the Road to Find Out," "Tea for the Tillerman" and "Miles from Nowhere" featured in Hal Ashby and Colin Higgins' 1971 black comedy Harold and Maude.
A folk-pop landmark immediately recognized the world over by its title alone, Tea for the Tillerman has forever been and will always be an audiophile reference LP. Newly remastered in 2020 in celebration of the iconic album's 50th anniversary!
