1971: a year that witnessed the release of some of the greatest albums of all time, including The Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers, Carole King’s Tapestry, Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On, Led Zeppelin IV, and John Lennon’s Imagine, to name but a few. But there was one more classic to come in November of that year – Cat Stevens’ Teaser and the Firecat. Stevens’ third LP on Island Records, and his third in 18 months, the album built on the extreme success of Tea for the Tillerman, and yielded some of his greatest songs including “The Wind”, “Moonshadow”, “Peace Train”, and “Morning Has Broken”.
