Blog Critics likes Tea For The Tillerman Live

BlogCritics Magazine posted a review of Cat Stevens’ Tea for the Tillerman Live, originally released on VHS in 1997, and re-released on DVD this past September 2.

When I received Cat Stevens – Tea For The Tillerman Live, a DVD of a studio concert recording made in 1971 at KCET Studios in Los Angeles, I had to set it aside for a few weeks. It was just as well. Somehow viewing it in the post-election week made it more fitting, with the youth vote combining with old Baby Boomers to elect the country’s first black president in a voter turnout not seen since 1960: it all seemed so retro. And so the concert’s “stuck in time” element, absolutely jarring, with a young and gorgeous Cat Stevens, his hair jet black and flowing, sitting on a stool, strumming his guitar, didn’t seem quite as out of place.
