Album - new. Release Date: 04/12/20

Genre:Folk / Pop


50th Anniversary reissue. Following his spiritual and artistic rebirth, and hot on the heels of his incredibly well received release, Mona Bone Jakon, Cat Stevens unveiled his second album of the year in November 1970 … and it was to become one of the defining musical statements of the new decade. Tea For The Tillerman, not only consolidated Cat’s success in the UK and forged him a glittering new career in the USA, it also set him on the road to global superstardom and gave the world songs like Wild World, Father and Son, Where Do The Children Play? and many more.

5CD To commemorate the album’s 50th anniversary comes this definitive super deluxe box set of Tea For The Tillerman. With the songs’ messages as powerfully relevant today as they were in 1970, the original album is represented here on CD by a brand new 2020 remaster at Abbey Road Studios by Geoff Pesche, overseen by original producer Paul Samwell-Smith, as well as a new 2020 Mix on CD by David Hefti. It also includes, in full, Yusuf’s September 2020 reimagined Tea For The Tillerman 2 album featuring new interpretations of the classic originals. The box also includes an exclusive fourth CD of outtakes, alternate versions and demos, and a fifth featuring 25 live performances from 1971 including some recorded at the legendary LA music venue The Troubadour. 

Alongside the 5CDs and gatefold vinyl LP the box also comes with a live 12” vinyl E.P. of the Troubadour recordings and, on BluRay, the original promo video of Father and Son, plus live performances, and the HD audio of the new Tea For The Tillerman 2020 Mix. Also included is a 98-page beautifully illustrated hardcover book with extensive new sleevenotes. Finally 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.
