Cat Stevens / Collected 2LP coloured vinyl

2LP purple vinyl limited to 2000 units

Music On Vinyl continue their Collected series next month with a 2LP selection of music from Cat Stevens pressed on limited edition 2LP purple vinyl.

The double vinyl set offers a decent overview of Stevens’ career starting with a trio of early singles from the 1960s (‘Matthew & Son’, ‘I Love My Dog’ and ‘I’m Gonna Get Me A Gun’) – and the classic ‘The First Cut Is The Deepest’ (from the New Masters album) – before moving on to choice cuts from his classic early seventies era such as ‘Peace Train’, ‘Where Do The Children Play?’, ‘Wild World’, ‘Morning Has Broken’, ‘Moonshadow’ and ‘Lady D’Arbanville’. Side four also includes to ‘Midday (Avoid City After Dark)’, credited to the singer’s latter-day Yusuf Islam identity.

These gatefold Collected sets are part of a long running series and are always really well presented and come in high quality thick PVC sleeves. This purple vinyl edition is limited to 2,000 units and will likely be replaced with a black vinyl once this is out of print.

    I got the silver copy when it first came out and pressing was awful. Returned for refund with no issue , then bought standard black version and was a reasonable job .

    Music on Vinyl is getting lazy!
    This was first issued in 2017 on silver vinyl. It was also limited to 2000 copies.
    Just another “milk the fans” project!

    Ordered via SDE shop

    What was he eating when he wrote Banapple Gas? Cat was having writer’s block when he wrote that and most of the album Numbers.

    “Banapple gas, oh Banapple gas
    Everybody’s sniffing it, Banapple gas.”

    very lazy cover design… just sayin’…

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      It’s a picture of the artist with reasonable typography. What were you expecting? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically across the plain… ;)

        Fawlty Towers has a lot to answer for ………

      • Jakob says:

        And I was just about to remark on how weak the typography is!

      • Daveyman 1968 (Daveyman19) says:

        “the torquay view is over there between the sea and the sky… ” :-)

        just though the cover looked a bit bland considering some of his classic 70’s albums had nice illustration etc – its the designer in me thats all!

        • Paul Sinclair says:

          Yeah… I think studio album in the 1970s and third-party licensed greatest hits in the 2020s work to different rules! I’m seen worse…

  6. Gerbrand says:

    Also available on 3CD with 54 tracks (!) for half the price (!!). Format wars ;-)

    Recommended, like all Collected 3CD’s.

    This originally came out as a (limited) 180g black vinyl 2LP set in late 2017.

    • Keith says:

      Also released as a “limited” edition on silver coloured vinyl in 2017. That was from Music on Vinyl as well. How limited is limited!?

    Couple of typos in the text … Peach Train & Wild Word !
