Mona Bone Jakon only began Cat Stevens ' comeback. Seven months later, he returned with Tea for the Tillerman , an album in the same chamber-group style, employing the same musicians and producer, but with a far more confident tone. Mona Bone Jakon had been full of references to death, but Tea for the Tillerman was not about dying; it was about living in the modern world while rejecting it in favor of spiritual fulfillment. It began with a statement of purpose, "Where Do the Children Play? The rest of the album veered between two themes: the conflict between the young and the old, and religion as an answer to life's questions. Tea for the Tillerman was the story of a young man's search for spiritual meaning in a soulless class society he found abhorrent. He hadn't yet reached his destination, but he was confident he was going in the right direction, traveling at his own, unhurried pace.
I remember going to Hillcrest High Fidelity in Dallas and going back to the high-end show room with Gene to pick the best sounding Decca. Well anyway you get the idea; I both like and feel real nostalgia for Cat Stevens. In the early s his albums got more play time on my stereo than anyone. Tea for the Tillerman and Teaser and the Firecat both went triple platinum in the United States and his album Catch Bull at Four sold half a million copies in the first two weeks of release alone. Still, with all his popularity he had a rough life. He was a child of a Greek Orthodox father and a Swedish Lutheran mother, and was sent to a Catholic school. He developed an interest in music at a fairly young age, and taught himself piano using the family baby grand piano.
