With 'Mona Bone Jakon' and 'Tea for the Tillerman' Yusuf/Cat Stevens asserted himself both lyrically and musically as a true artist in the most profound sense. His work during this period would go on to transcend its own era and stay relevant for generations to come. By looking inward with eyes wide open he discovered truths that he was able to present to the world with compelling sincerity through his unique and spell-binding gift for songwriting. These two albums truly stand as a rite of passage for all songwriters seeking to learn how to present their intimate experiences to the external world, and essential listening to all lovers of great music.

50 years on, the songs on 'Mona Bone Jakon' still sound as fresh as the day they were recorded. Presented here in a new 2020 Remastered version on CD, and a new 2020 Mix by David Hefti on CD and LP, the Super Deluxe Edition also includes an exclusive third CD of previously unreleased studio material, and a fourth CD featuring 18 live performances from 1970/71. The 2020 remaster was completed at Abbey Road Studios, and was overseen by original album producer, Paul Samwell-Smith.

This 50th anniversary set is completed with a live 12" etched vinyl E.P. of the rare audience recording of "Live At Plumpton Jazz & Blues Festival" from August, 1970, and with a BluRay disc featuring the original promo video of "Lady D'Arbanville", plus eight live TV performances, and the HD audio of the new Mona Bone Jakon 2020 Mix.

There's also a selection of memorabilia including Island Records press kit, two Island press photos, a replica 1970 Plumpton Jazz and Blues flyer, a Cat Stevens tour sticker and 'dustbin' greetings card and pop art print in a card envelope.
