Yusuf Islam meets Cat Stevens
Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens) has produced a masterpiece of a new Album, entitled Roadsinger (To Warm You Through the Night).
I bought this yesterday and it hasn't been off the player, at home or in the car.
This is the one we've been waiting for since Yusuf decided to take up the guitar again.
Probably the best track is the haunting title Roadsinger, but I specially enjoyed the powerful statement of faith in All Kinds of Roses.
If this had ben recorded in 1969 it would have been instantly recognisable as Cat Stevens. The artwork on the album covers and inlay have some fabulously nostalgic pictures of Yusuf's early life.
My recommendation is go get some!
