Cat Stevens: Foreigner





There are good songs on this album but this is where I started to lose real interest in his music. The reason was that I did not really like the sound of the musical arrangements for the songs with the heavy influence of the piano/electric piano sound.

You seem to be building up a collection of those high quality CD issues. Good for you.  ;)

Reading this post, I just bruised my jaw on the floor.

I am a huge Floyd fan, FWIW.

Yep, it’s a damn fine one. I do love Animals, The Wall, and A Momentary Lapse of Reason a bit more, though.

Some Friday frivolity. Though the song is quite familiar, I don't recall ever seeing this video!

I'm totally stunned on how awesome Lera Lynn's rendition of Ring of Fire (Johnny Cash) is. It is more on the sombre side of life and incredibly beautiful. I prefer it over the original by miles.

That was really well done. Do you know Anita Carter's version? I think it was even released a few months before Johnny's:
