About this deal

In a contemporary review for The Village Voice, music critic Robert Christgau gave the album a B+, noting that "this one has a nice post-creative trauma feel, intimate and sensitive.

Samwell-Smith also produced the album and brought Stevens a high-fidelity sound that was not as present on his previous releases. After a meteoric start to his career, surprising even his original producer at Deram Records with the hit singles " I Love My Dog", " Matthew and Son", and " I'm Gonna Get Me a Gun", Stevens' debut album, Matthew and Son, began charting. However, after the pressure for a repeat album of the same calibre, Stevens, considered a young teen sensation, was overwhelmed by a new lifestyle as well as the demands of writing, recording, performing, publicity appearances, and touring. Not to keen on the strange "Popstar" or the title track Mona Bone Jakon but on the whole it is a superb album! 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.The album attracted attention, however, in the wake of the commercial breakthrough of its follow-up, Tea for the Tillerman, and with the inclusion of three of its songs (" Trouble", "I Wish, I Wish", and "I Think I See the Light") in Hal Ashby and Colin Higgins's 1971 black comedy, Harold and Maude. 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.

IF YOU WANT AN OVERVIEW OF HIS WHOLE CAREER GO FOR ONE OF THE COMPILATIONS - BUT TO ME THESE THREE ALBUMS REPRESENT CAT AT HIS VERY PEAK. Skiba sings it in a kind of exasperated way like He's tired of hearing this negative view constantly and just allowing that person to continue feeling the way they feel knowing he can't do anything about it. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one.

that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. 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.

Bought this for the track Lilywhite, the only album to have it apart from the box-set on the road to find out.

THE NEXT TWO ALBUMS PERFECTED THE NEW STYLE - TEA FOR THE TILLERMAN HIS PEAK IN TERMS OF SONGWRITING, TEASER AND THE FIRECAT HIS MOST COMMERCIAL. 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.

During his hospital-dictated year of bedrest, Stevens began writing a catalogue of songs to fill far more than his next album. 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. 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.

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). Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better. Preciso che questo è il secondo disco, il primo l'ho restituito perchè ondulato malamente e non poteva essere ascoltato. Michael Valenzuela, "Majicat – Cat Stevns (sic) in a French Magazine Pop Musigue (sic)", Pop Musique interview, Majicat: Cat Stevens Scrapbook, c.
