Biography

Cat Stevens started his musical career in the sixties, and has since transformed into one of the most important artists in history. His breakout hits, “I Love My Dog” and “Matthew and Son,” reached the top of the charts in 1967 and in that same year Stevens penned the songs “Here Comes My Baby” and “The First Cut Is The Deepest,” which both ...

Overall, though, this album is pretty dang good.
James Noble
I still want to be now because I want to write and sing songs about peace and other things so I can try to create a better world.

The first time I heard Cat Stevens, I knew I had found music for me.

This is a great collection of Cat Stevens music that contains the unreleased song "If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out" from the cult film "Harold and Maude". For that song alone, this cd is a must have! But for beginners to Cat's music, this diverse collection also includes such well-known classics as "The Wind", "Trouble", and "Where Do the Children Play".
Footsteps in the Dark serves as both a good start to a new Cat Stevens fan and a welcome addition for the collector.
And if you haven't seen "Harold and Maude", what are you waiting for??

FINALLY, fans of the film Harold and Maude can have all the songs! With this release, if you're a Harold and Maude fan, you get the songs from the soundtrack that was never released in the U.S.

Aside from that....this is a great selection of some of his tunes that include a few that were not released anywhere else but here at the time of this release and a couple of hits that didn't make his original Greatest Hits LP.

"I Want To Live In A Wigwam" was released in the U.S. as a single at the time the CD was released to promote it...they'd have been better off and more successful releasing one of the lesser known tracks from the Harold and Maude soundtrack, even though Wigwam did recieve a quite a bit of radio play, despite his change in religion stirring up controversy this collection did still fare well with diehard fans. Wigwam did little on the charts after it's release.

But, on this LP, included are his classic "Father and Son" which, still to this day, is one of his cuts favored by fans and probably one of his best known songs that did okay as a single but, since then has grown to cult status as probably his best work ever released. This disc also features the hits: "Trouble", "On The Road To Find Out", "If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out" and "Where Do The Children Play" all having been featured in the film "Harold and Maude" that also have achieved cult classic status.

While this release is a little uneven (probably because Cat Stevens had little to do with it's production) and the intent on A&M to cash in on what was left of his popularity and his catalog, it is still a great LP and paired with his "Greatest Hits" CD, would make a good cross section of his best work from this period in his life/career.

Envision, for a second, if you will, finding your high school yearbook somewhere completely unexpected. You open it up, assuming you'll find the old familiar faces, only to discover the black & whites are now full color audio and video. The sounds are so fresh, each note is so clear, each syllable so precise, you begin to wonder whether you'd ever heard these songs to their fullest extent.

I know no selection will ever be complete. That's inevitable, natural, and expectable: that's precisely why they're called selections. But each of the tracks -from "Katmandu" to "Daytime", even the self-deprecating "(I never wanted) To be a star", and the classic "Father and Son"- shares a renewed vitality, an unexpected spark, an intimacy that makes you wonder what it was you'd been listening to all these years.

For the absolutist and obsesive collector (i.e. those who've got to have ALL the recording and versions of their favorite artists), "Footsteps" may be a little overkill.

But for the rest of us, who enjoy a good afternoon with Cat -and that have earned out way to a more than decent sound equipment not to be shared or touched by anybody else- this is an album worth re-purchasing, if only for the joy of hearing Cat Stevens they way it was meant to be heard.

And I can assure you, without a doubt, that you'll be singing along, at the top of your lungs, before you even realize it. If that's not what a reissue is for, then I've been buying them under the wrong pretences.

Sometimes it's fun just to listen to "happy" songs--Victoria Williams, Tom Jones, The Monkees, and others. Cat Stevens also ranks as an artist who makes happy music. One of the top tracks of this variety is "If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out", certainly the highlight anthem of the dark comedy "Harold and Maude", but it also features another selection from the film, "Where Do the Children Play?". Fans of Cat Stevens, happy music, and "Harold and Maude" will enjoy this CD.

Volume 1 definetly has its share of memorable tracks like "Moonshadow" and "Oh Very Young" to boast about, but this disc includes songs from the motion picture "Harold and Maude" as well as other tunes like "The Wind" that made its way onto the Rushmore soundtrack a number of years back.

The reason to make this album your preferred choice is that it does not shimmer with the same pop varnishings that Steven's better known hits are remembered for. Rather here you have a more idiosyncratic and personal set of songs that capture a mood that only Cat Steven's seemed to have written about. Lyrics such as "if you want to sing out/ sing out/ if you want to be free/ be free/ because there's a million things to be/ you know that there are" could be mistaken for a Peter, Paul and Mary song. . . but that voice! Who sings like Cat Stevens? Whose tunes have that same baroque/pop/revivalist amplifier reaching out to you and making even the most upbeat, danceable song remain private, even intensely personal?

These songs are for the more devoted fans, the listeners attracted to songs like "Morning Is Broken," (Steven's adaptation of a traditional Koranic tale), as opposed to a top-forty selection.

Five stars. Unique
