Poetic and lyrical:One of Cat's best !,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mona Bone Jakon (Audio CD)
I missed this the first time around coming in,as I did,with 'Tea for the Tillerman'.Thirty Three years on and finding myself filling in the gaps in my musical journey from youth to middle age,I picked this up through Amazon.
To my delight and amazement I find this-Cat's first album after he re-invented himself as a acoustic singer/songwriter- totally captivating !
I was familiar with one or two tracks which had appeared on Island compilation albums but it was wonderful to hear Mona Bone Jakon as a new album which sounded totally approachable and accessible all these decades later.
Like John Martyn,Van Morrison,Paul Simon,Nick Drake and other great singer songwriters,Cat's musical legacy is as valuable today as it ever was.
Mona Bone Jakon is a great album !
