Tea For The Tillerman - Teaser And The Firecat - Cat Stevens 2 CD Album Bundling. Audio CD. Yusuf/Cat Stevens. Special offers and product promotions. Years ago, my high school days, Teaser and the Firecat and Tea for the Tillerman were part of my original vinyl collection. The quality of these new pressings is first rate. Each is the 180g pressings I believe they call them. Heavier and reminiscent of the earlier days of vinyl. Was anxious to play them and was pleasantly surprised at how good these albums sounded. The cover art is also quite pleasant to look at again.

This is a cohesive and moving record that ranges from delicate ballads to irresistible sing-along anthems, and features a slew of elegant melodies. The lyrics range from joyous to serious, but natural optimism shines through despite his sometimes dismal take on the state of the world
