TOP 500 REVIEWERon 11 June 2016
This is a great album of music - featuring 24 songs by Cat Stevens. It covers the period of his career from 1967 (with the release of the LP "Matthew and Son") through to 1978 (and his "Back to Earth" album). As such, it draws on Cat's material from his first 11 studio albums. This body of work presents an amazing and varied songbook - and Cat Steven's represented one the defining contributors to 1970's folk-rock and pop music. His work during this period was both critically and commercially successful - and, at times, artistically inspirational (especially the tracks on "Tea for the Tillerman" and "Teaser and the Firecat"). With so many wonderful songs to select from, compiling this 'very best of' Cat Stevens must have been a challenge.

This album presents both hit singles and lessor well known tracks from albums. The majority of the songs featured here are great - and the remainder are still good. This particular collection has been re-issued several times, and on each occasion the track listing has altered somewhat. I received the 2003 UK edition. It consists of the following songs:

1."Moonshadow" – 2:50
2."Father and Son" – 3:41
3."Morning Has Broken" – 3:20
4."Wild World" – 3:21
5."The First Cut Is the Deepest" – 3:01
6."Lady D'Arbanville" – 3:45
7."Oh Very Young" – 2:36
8."Matthew and Son" – 2:44
9."Sitting" – 3:14
10."Hard Headed Woman" – 3:49
11."I Love My Dog" – 2:19
12."Ruby Love" – 2:38
13."Don't Be Shy" – 2:51
14."Can't Keep It In" – 3:00
15."Here Comes My Baby" – 2:55
16."Into White" – 3:25
17."(Remember the Days of The) Old Schoolyard" – 2:43
18."Where Do the Children Play?" – 3:52
19."How Can I Tell You" – 4:28
20."Another Saturday Night" – 2:28
21."Sad Lisa" – 3:42
22."Just Another Night" – 3:51
23."Peace Train" – 4:12
24."If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out" – 2:46

The 1990 edition features just 18 songs, while the 2000 edition presents 20 tracks.

For anyone who's unfamiliar with Cat Stevens, and who's interested in listening to 'indie music' from the 1970's, I thoroughly recommend this album. If you're already a fan of this artist, you'll know how truly great this singer-songwriter was during that decade.

Quite a few all-time,evergreen,standards! An absolute "must-have" for any of the younger generations, who are not "au-fait" with The Cats music,this copy has a better travck list and sound re-production than any for sale in Australia!
