Our Review

Cat Stevens’ personal journey is an unusually interesting one. After starting as a precocious pop star in the late ‘60s, he evolved into a more thoughtful folk-rock troubadour in the early ‘70s, before embracing Islam and renouncing his career. The Very Best of Cat Stevens lays out the essential highpoints of his most productive years. Listened to in sequence, these songs become diary entries — the earnest young balladeer captured in “The First Cut is the Deepest” soon gives way to the ruminative poet of “Where Do the Children Play?” and “Father and Son.” Stevens’ trademark purrs and growls lend a rough edge to plaintive tunes like “Wild World” and underscore the rock bite of “Can’t Keep It In.” Songs like “Moonshadow” and “The Wind” conjure up fog-shrouded English landscapes with their delicate imagery and acoustic-oriented arrangements. Whether he’s calling for universal brotherhood (“Peace Train”) or seeking the proper mate (“Hard Headed Woman”), Stevens comes across as both ethereal and earthy. Later tracks like “Majik of Majiks” and “(Remember the Days of the) Old Schoolyard” suffer some by comparison but overall this album is a compelling chronicle of Stevens’ quest for artistic expression and spiritual fulfillment.

Customer Reviews

EXCELLENT CAT!!! (5 stars)

Great selections from a great artist! Highly recommend this one! Some are well known, while others are a little obscure -yet ALL are enjoyable for the fans of this incredible singer/songwriter. I don't usually bother with these kinds of reviews but this one made me very happy so I wanted to share with others how this "Best of" album is a gem!


A big blast of 70's nostalgia (4 stars)

This is a great CD, and definitely worth downloading. My wife bought this for me several years ago, and it was stolen; great way to replace it. For anyone who came of age listening to FM radio in the 70's, this is big fat blast of nostalgia.


Cat (5 stars)

Cat is the most amazing singer and song writer that I have ever heard in my life. Buy this album.

Cat Stevens, born Steven Demetre Georgiou, was the son of a Swedish mother and a Greek father who ran a restaurant in London. He became interested in folk music and rock & roll in his teens while attending Hammersmith College and in 1965 began performing under the name Steve Adams.
