1971: a year that witnessed the release of some of the greatest albums of all time, including Cat Stevens’ Teaser and the Firecat. Stevens’ third LP on Island Records, and his third in 18 months, the album built on the extreme success of Tea for the Tillerman, and yielded some of his greatest songs including “The Wind”, “Moonshadow”, “Peace Train”, and “Morning Has Broken”.
To mark the 50th anniversary of this landmark record, UMC/ Island Records will issue a multi-format release suite.
