Lovely.

I am listening on a youtube version of the album constructed by a fan. Everything seems to be live versions down the years.

What has happened to the world so that people like Johnson & Trump get elected?



I suspect neither would be fans of Cat Stevens.

I have it in my 'To Watch' pile.

Mind you, I have had several copies down the decades and never reached it.

I once had a VHS copy! Never got around to watching it.

I know it is a classic and that I would probably love it.


it is... it is. hmmm. twisted and funny and sick and sweeeet and packed full of cat music.

end of review. can't give anything away.

I actually don't remember Into White (I listened to this album all the time in the 80's) weird Almost like I wiped it out of my memory.

This is all lovely stuff, btw.

CS music played on US FM radio from the 1976-1978 brace of albums put me off the man. But this is great.

It's a very good song, resonates with so many.

When I became a father my perspective on it changed and the song became something else.

Spotify working!!!!!

I am on the studio version of 'On the Road To Find Out'

Had I been less distracted this evening I would have made an incisive comment about Paul Samwell-Smith of the Yardbirds and his production work for Cat, Jethro Tull, and All About Eve.

Sadly, now lost to humanity.

...although, I could meet the reunited Yardbirds in Poundland and compliment/berate them on their respective career choices.

Again.
