isn't Chinese Democracy being released this week
patience....a little patience
Anyway...here's the pick of the pops:
Cat Stevens - 4CD Boxset - In Search Of The Centre Of The Universe.
Very, very good body of work. This guy is underestimated + somewhat misunderstood. Definitely deserves a reappraisal. He's written an awful lot of great songs. Plus he's got a story that goes to interesting places and is worth checking out in itself.
Which leads to...
Yusuf - An Other Cup.
If you think 14 years wait for Chinese Democracy is a tad excessive check out the 28 years
for this album, released a few months ago. If you don't know about this guy and what happened to him in between check it out... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yusuf_Islam
Listening to the box set followed by this, the length of time involved is hardly perceptable, but there is a definite evolution. This one is really good and some of his best work is on this new one.
