Description

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022.

I never connected with the later albums, (I thought he went a bit - Cliff Richard) but listening again to 'Sad Lisa' from Tea for the Tillerman, his next album, it is possible to hear a common thread. 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. The set also includes an exclusive third CD of previously unreleased demos, and a fourth featuring 18 live performances from 1970/71. Journalist Robert Chalmers reiterated this point for a 2003 interview with Yusuf Islam for The Independent on Sunday when he wrote: "When [Stevens] re-emerged in 1969, he had more than 40 new songs and released three triumphant albums in 15 months on Chris Blackwell's Island label: Mona Bone Jakon (his pet word for penis), Tea for the Tillerman and Teaser and the Firecat.

Lady D'Arbanville was the 'hit', from those days when you had to have a 'hit' to sell the album and is the only track that really harks back to his first success. Samwell-Smith also produced the album and brought Stevens a high-fidelity sound that was not as present on his previous releases. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives. 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.

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’. His second album was a commercial failure and in the autumn of 1968, he was hospitalized, with a diagnosis of tuberculosis and a collapsed lung. 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). This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc.Presented here in a brand new 2020 Remastered version on CD, as well as in a new 2020 Mix (by David Hefti) on CD and LP, the Super Deluxe Edition also includes an exclusive third CD of previously unreleased demos, and a fourth CD featuring 18 live performances from 1970/71. Emerging from his recuperation with a new deal with Island Records, 1970 saw the release of Mona Bone Jakon, and with it a new sound which would forge the Cat Stevens sound we know and love today.

The album sold slowly (at first) but over time has been certified Gold for sales/shipments of more than 500,000 copies in the United States. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals.The tapes have been lovingly rendered at Abbey Road under the supervision of the original producer and the result is brilliant. either that or he is reffering to a mona bone jakon which is an object used in altering the substrate or curled end of a wind driven bone-made device we know nothing about. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer.
