Review: The Cat is back! This is a collection of new and revamped very early tunes by the man once known as Cat Stevens, who was huge when I was in college in the 70s. His whimsical tone still maintains the fanciful & philosophical lilt of his past and the songs are mostly life lessons. Even the old tunes sound new.
