Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 205/500!

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.

This Super Deluxe box set features a new 2020 Remaster, also completed at Abbey Road Studios and overseen by original album producer Paul Samwell-Smith, and Mix, of the original 1970 Island Records multi-track master tape, overseen by Yusuf and engineer David Hefti. The 2020 Mix also appears on the 1LP format which is exclusive to this box set.

CD3 features the newly released 'Tea For The Tillerman²' - Yusuf has chosen to include it here in order to present the most complete edition of the original album, showing how these songs are as pertinent today as they were when written over 50 years ago.

CD4 includes demos, outtakes and alternate versions, including two previously unreleased tracks ("Can This Be Love?", "It's So Good", "If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out" and "Don't Be Shy"), while CD5 features 25x live performances - 5 previously unreleased tracks recorded Live At The Troubadour, 4 previously unreleased live performances from the 8th December 1970 show at Fillmore East, and 6 previously unreleased live from British, French and German TV performances over 1970/71. The box set also includes the previously unreleased "Can This Be Love?", originally scheduled to appear on the album, the song was written by Cat along with "Father & Son" for a proposed musical project 'Revolussia' in 1969.

The Super Deluxe box set is rounded out with a BluRay featuring HD 24bit/96khz audio of the 2020 Mix, as well as 8 previously unreleased live TV performances, 7 tracks performed live at KCNET studios, Los Angeles, and the official "Father And Son" video. Also housed in a card envelope within the box is a 'Pick Up A Good Book' bookmark, a Yusuf / Cat Stevens designed 'Miles From Nowhere' print, a reproduction handwritten lyric sheet for 'Miles From Nowhere', a fold-out 'Live From The Troubadour 1970' poster, and a 'Tea For The Tillerman' sticker.

The Live At The Troubadour performance is also included in full on the live 12" E.P. (exclusive to this box).
