Catch Bull @ Four

Yusuf Islam

Yusuf Islam – commonly known as Cat Stevens, born Steven Georgiou turned his back on his career and his fans in 1979. He converted to Islam and then devoted himself to education and philanthropic causes inside the Muslim community. He has devoted a great deal of time since he abandoned his musical career to promoting peace in the world. A damn noble cause in my book.

Now he is back to making music with a soon to be released album entitled “Tell ‘Em I’m Gone” He will also be doing some shows at New Yorks Beacon Theatre as part of his first US concert tour since 1976.

I still listen to his music from time to time, “Catch Bull At Four” has on many occasions been a playlist on my spotify. I can’t help but wonder about this return to the stage though. After all this time, why now? Does he need money once again?

Bring tea for the Tillerman
Steak for the sun
Wine for the women who made the rain come
Seagulls sing your hearts away
‘Cause while the sinners sin, the children play

Oh Lord how they play and play
For that happy day, for that happy day
