Yusuf/Cat Stevens - The Laughing Apple LP
The Laughing Apple celebrates the 50th anniversary of the artist's 1967 debut, Matthew and Son, and will come out on Yusuf / Cat Stevens' Cat-O-Log Records imprint, via Decca, the label he worked with back then. It also reunites him with producer Paul Samwell-Smith, who helmed Tea for the Tillerman, Teaser and the Firecat and other releases from his early-Seventies heyday.
Among the old songs that Yusuf / Cat Stevens revived and revamped for The Laughing Apple are "Mighty Peace" and "Mary and the Little Lamb," neither of which ever made it onto an album. Four other songs, including the title track, appeared in their original forms on his 1967 LP New Masters. And "You Can Do (Whatever)" was originally intended for the Harold and Maude soundtrack but was left unfinished at the time. "Many of my earlier recordings were overcooked with big band arrangements," he explains in a press release of his decision to revisit this material. "They crowded the song out a lot of times."
