5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect album by a master songwriter, 15 Sept. 2006
This review is from: Tea for the Tillerman (Audio CD)
This is Cat Stevens at his absolute best. This is one of my favourite albums of all time and I just simply never get bored by it. It is crammed full of gems and this has been perfectly illustrated by cover versions of "Where do the children play", "Father and Son" and "Wild World". Recently, the title track has been used as the theme tune for the BBC series Extras. What more proof do you need?

If you have never heard this album then you have truly missed out on one of the most perfect collections of songs that has ever been written. It has upbeat and sad moments, ballads and uptempo styles, great lyrics and, above all, Cat himself. What a musician, songwriter and singer he is. All his albums are great but, for me, this is the best. Buy it or forever be in ignorance of this mans talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music, 6 Sept. 2006
This review is from: Blues Run The Game (Audio CD)
I have recently discovered Jackson C Frank and cannot now understand why his music isn't more well known. OK, he only released the one album but what an album! This music is quite simply beautiful, inspiring, well written and well performed. He does not do anything too fancy but instead sticks to playing a good range of music that is obviously written from the heart. If you read more about his tragic life and listen to many of his lyrics it brings even more poignancy to the music.

The highlight on this album for me is Milk and Honey, which was later covered by Nick Drake. I have rarely heard such a haunting song and the lyrics are superb.

If you like the more well know artists such as Donovan or Dylan then you would be a fool not to buy this album too.

Priceless.
