About this deal

But they are all good songs and good arrangements, given the standards of the time, which was to put violins on anything that resembled a ballad. Non il primo in ordine di tempo, bensì quello che apre la trilogia di capolavori (gli altri due sono Teaser and the firecat a Tea for the tillerman, successivi a questo). Not to keen on the strange "Popstar" or the title track Mona Bone Jakon but on the whole it is a superb album! We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc.

P. of a rare audience recording of Live At Plumpton Jazz and Blues Festival from August 1970, and with a BluRay disc featuring the original promo video of Lady D’Arbanville, plus eight live TV performances, and the HD audio of the new Mona Bone Jakon 2020 Mix.

To commemorate the album’s 50th anniversary comes this new 180-gram vinyl version containing a stunning new 2020 remaster of ‘Mona Bone Jakon’ by Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road, overseen by original producer Paul Samwell-Smith. Sounding as fresh as the day it was recorded, the original album is represented here by a brand new 2020 remaster of Mona Bone Jakon by Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road, overseen by original producer Paul Samwell-Smith 2020 on CD, as well as a new 2020 Mix by David Hefti on both CD and LP.

Bought this for the track Lilywhite, the only album to have it apart from the box-set on the road to find out. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. According to a 1972 interview with Stevens, the inspiration for the title was a name he created to describe his penis: "'Mona Bone Jakon' is another name for my penis.Mona Bone Jakon, his first album for Island, showcased a markedly different change in direction for Cat, unveiling with it a remarkable set of new compositions that included classics like Trouble, Maybe You’re Right and the UK hit single Lady D’Arbanville. Song like Katmandu are all very well but the sentiment and the tinkly glockenspiel verge on consigning it to the schlock hopper.

Back in 1970 and following a period of illness and recuperation, singer-songwriting troubadour Cat Stevens re-emerged with a new record deal with Island Records and a spiritual and artistic rebirth.
