Love all of them. We went to see him 2 or 3 years ago and he was great. He said he was making a musical using a lot of his songs but we've heard no more about that, must try and find out.

Oh Lesley, if you find out anything please let us know.
where did you see him??

This is a great song written when he was very young.

He sold "The first cut is the deepest" to PP arnold for £30 when he was a strugging songwriter

Oh dear, but we all do things that are necessary at the time.....but what a mistake.

i was in a bar in side a couple of years ago,the red dragon and it was mid day..No one else in the bar but me and i was sat outside on the patio area enjoying a cold efes when they put a cat stevens cd on.Well that was it for me 7 efes later i swaggered back to the hotel singing all the songs but one that i did like was ruby love.Went back every day after for a chill out and ended up with the nickname cat stevens as i requested they put it on when i went in.Even now even though the bar has closed waiters that worked there and still work in side shout hello cat stevens when they see me...happy times

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Islam at a Cami attached to a school in North London , a quiet , pleasant un assuming gentleman who was most helpful in assisting me in my then job ( collecting materials for the BBC).

A true pleasure.

Steve.

All great songs, from a great writer. I had to make some space few years back and sold all his albums to a dealer. Im a silly billy, as i had them all and let them go for only 100 pounds. Like i said Ted we all do daft things.

Superb artist - superb writer. Teaser and the Firecat and Tea for the Tillerman were 2 classic albums and probably his best. Too many favourite tracks to choose from - but if pushed I will go for " Ruby My Love".

Love this song and Cat Stevens singing it this understated way
moves me..

Originally by The Animals - sung as a rock anthem
By Nina Simone - sung as an anthem
by Santa Esmerelda - as a latino explosion
by Cat Stevens - as a prayer and a quiet statement ...

Baby, don't you know I'm just human ♪ ♫♩♫♭♪♯♬
And I've got thoughts like any other one ♪ ♫♩♫♭♪♯♬
And sometimes I find myself, oh Lord, regretting ♪ ♫♩♫♭♪♯♬
Some foolish thing, some foolish thing I've done ♪ ♫♩♫♭♪♯♬
But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good ♪ ♫♩♫♭♪♯♬
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood!!! ♪ ♫♩♫♭♪♯♬
