IF YOU WANT AN OVERVIEW OF HIS WHOLE CAREER GO FOR ONE OF THE COMPILATIONS - BUT TO ME THESE THREE ALBUMS REPRESENT CAT AT HIS VERY PEAK.

Not to keen on the strange "Popstar" or the title track Mona Bone Jakon but on the whole it is a superb album! The tapes have been lovingly rendered at Abbey Road under the supervision of the original producer and the result is brilliant. To commemorate the album’s 50th anniversary comes this new 180-gram vinyl version containing a stunning new 2020 remaster of ‘Mona Bone Jakon’ by Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road, overseen by original producer Paul Samwell-Smith. Michael Valenzuela, "Majicat – Cat Stevns (sic) in a French Magazine Pop Musigue (sic)", Pop Musique interview, Majicat: Cat Stevens Scrapbook, c.To commemorate the album’s 50th anniversary comes this expanded 2CD edition which includes a stunning new 2020 remaster of ‘Mona Bone Jakon’ by Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road, overseen by original producer Paul Samwell-Smith, plus a second disc of demos and live rarities and booklet with full sleevenotes. Song like Katmandu are all very well but the sentiment and the tinkly glockenspiel verge on consigning it to the schlock hopper. Mona Bone Jakon’, his first album for Island, showcased a markedly different change in direction for Cat, unveiling with it a remarkable set of new compositions that included classics like ‘Trouble’, ‘Maybe You’re Right’ and the UK hit single ‘Lady D’Arbanville’.

Samwell-Smith also produced the album and brought Stevens a high-fidelity sound that was not as present on his previous releases.

Produced by Paul Samwell-Smith (formerly of The Yardbirds), the album featured the single “Lady D’Arbanville” as well as the fan favourites “I Wish, I Wish” and “Maybe You’re Right”.THE NEXT TWO ALBUMS PERFECTED THE NEW STYLE - TEA FOR THE TILLERMAN HIS PEAK IN TERMS OF SONGWRITING, TEASER AND THE FIRECAT HIS MOST COMMERCIAL. However, after the pressure for a repeat album of the same calibre, Stevens, considered a young teen sensation, was overwhelmed by a new lifestyle as well as the demands of writing, recording, performing, publicity appearances, and touring. Emerging from his recuperation with a new deal with Island Records, 1970 saw the release of Mona Bone Jakon, and with it a new sound which would forge the Cat Stevens sound we know and love today. After his recovery, he negotiated out of his contract with Deram Records and worked with former Yardbirds bassist Paul Samwell-Smith on a stripped-down sound.
