Cat Stevens recently released a newly recorded edition of his 1970 classic, Tea for the Tillerman. 50 years later, the CD has a new sound, but also the old sound that I originally fell in love with. All of the same songs are there with a fresh sound. The new-old songs are not such a huge diversion from the old favorites to deter fans from liking the 2020 recording. Stevens takes a look at the familiar line-up and imprints just enough new riffs and rhythms to appeal, but not repeat. You can hear the older voice and, perhaps, the added wisdom as you relive these classics. Borrow it from the library.
