Eagle Records is delighted to announce the release of Cat Stevens' legendary Majikat North American tour in 1976 on CD. An ambitious tour involving live magicians, synchronized film projection and a large innovative stage set, it was to prove to be his last as Cat Stevens.
Recorded just past Cat Stevens's commercial zenith and about a year and a half before he quit the music business for good, Majikat
, the concert film from his Earth Tour 1976 (made in Williamsburg, Virginia) lay unused in the vaults for the better part of three decades, and its 2004 DVD release was a reminder of just how successful and talented he was. Playing acoustic guitar and piano and performing solo, with minimal backing, as well as with a full band (not to mention a trio of magicians and an impressive stage set), Stevens runs through some 20 songs, drawing from his entire catalog, with particular emphasis on Tea for the Tillerman
. The remastered digital sound is excellent. This CD is a worthy and valuable record of one of the most popular artists of his time. --Sam Graham
