Cat Stevens, a.k.a. Yusuf, is looking back at his 1970 multi-platinum classic Tea for the Tillerman in a new variety of 50th anniversary formats. The album cemented the artist’s reputation and included some of his best-known hits, including “Wild World,” “Father and Son,” and timeless classics like “Where Do the Children Play” and “On the Road To Find Out.” The deluxe 50th anniversary box packs in 5 CDs, a Blu-ray, an LP, and an etched 12″. CD 1 includes the 2020 remaster of the original album mix, while CD 2 houses the 2020 remix (also on LP). The recent album Tea For The Tillerman ² is reprised on CD 3, while CD 4 contains demos, alternate versions, and unreleased tracks. CD 5 is filled with 25 live recordings from The Troubadour in L.A. (also on an etched 12″), KCET also in L.A., the BBC In Concert performance, Beat Club, various French TV appearances, and four songs recorded at New York’s Fillmore East. The Blu-ray includes the promo video for “Father and Son,” TV appearances on KCET, a trio of songs from the BBC, and performances on Beat Club and French television. If that weren’t enough, there’s also high-res audio of the 2020 remix of Tea For The Tillerman.
