TOPIC: Cat Stevens YEAH!
#234981
Cat Stevens YEAH! 8 Months ago  
We used to be very close friends in the 60s - he was great at Glastonbury (and one of the few acts with a good vocal balance). He used to come over to play me his new songs before recording them. I remember him arriving one day saying "you might not like this one; it's in two voices" and played me Father And Son. Wow!

Oh Very Young! Steve's songs are up there for me with Buddy Holly, Gene Pitney and Roy Orbison - far more my sounds than Elton or Presley.

His voice still pretty good; Remember the Days of the Old School Yard! YES.

PEACE TRAIN - I hoped he'd do this.

I think Peace Train was the star of Glastonbury this year.

Ooh I like Pagan Run - a new one sounding good.

It may be a personal thing but wasn't Father and Son absolutely fabulous? Top that, Elton!

I did pick up a Gene Pitney CD (as a taster) in a charity shop, it was cheap as chips. I am impressed! I like Maria Elena, the lyrics and melody remind me of Glen Campbell.

Got any stories about Gene Pitney?

No stories just adoration for many of his tracks.

I have never gotten in to Buddy Holly, I have tried and bought several collections, which have ended being used as coasters. I find his stuff bland even the material with Waylon Jennings, who I love.

Roy Orbison had an incredible voice and he was Wilbury also which is a bonus. I never see much of Orbisons records around, they could do with a few ressiues. I am not talking about The Sun Records and Monument era but the MGM stuff.

Roy Orbison's Many Moods is an incredible album but was only released in the U.S.
