Today 1948 Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) born

Yusuf Islam, (born Steven Demetre Georgiou on 21 July 1948 in London, UK), best known by his former stage name Cat Stevens, is a British musician of Greek Cypriot and Swedish ancestry. He is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, educator, philanthropist and prominent convert to Islam. Check Wikipedia for his interesting biography.

Cat Stevens - Live KCET studio 1971
02-On The Road To Find Out
03-Where do the Children Play
04-Wild World
05-Miles from Nowhere
06-Longer Boats
07-Father and Son
08-Hard Headed Woman

It was hard to decide what album to play. At first I did take Teaser and the firecat with the wonderful songs How can I tell you (I always dedicated this to my ex-wife) and Morning has broken. But I decided to pick an unofficial live recording from the same year 1971. Simply because of the intreging sleeve someone made : after all, Cat Stevens became Muslim in 1977.


Note : full screen window gives you the best view of the comments !

'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.

Link :
Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.

Pass to extract the file : 080719
The file is a small 28MB, 'cause the songs are only in low bitrate 128kbits.
Please donnut give a nasty comment about that : check 'My opinion about bitrates' on 2008_jan_25.

The next depends, amongst other things, on your security options in your browser and by so the ability to copy/paste the link.
When you see this in Google or Yahoo cache or by my Blog's search function read first the RED instructions at the top left of my Blog !
Direct link (after that go to the plain comment of this 2008_july article !) : JeansMusicBlog
Also possible : just click the 'post a comment' section here and you are able to copy/paste !
