Actually it's Yusuf, the artist formerly known as Cat Stevens. I haven't heard him in a very long time but he sounds as good as ever. Tea for the Tillerman could have been recorded a year ago. I'd love to know about the journey he's been on. I always got a sense from his music that he was always trying to find himself and I think now he has.

He's got an amazingly soothing voice that always had a calming effect on me as if I were a kid and my Dad was singing to me at night while playing his acoustic guitar. He can also paint pictures and scenes with his words like no other.

I still can't believe they arrested him of all people for being a suspected terrorist. He couldn't harm anything.

I'm really loving this album. The track This Glass World is great. I wish I could tell who the female backup vocalist was on Dream On, she sounds really amazing. Suppose I could surf the internet awhile.

I'm glad he's back.

He played live last week at an anniversary screening of the classic movie Harold & Maude in Los Angeles. He played three songs from the film. I love that movie and its soundtrack.

Really? Cool. I love Harold and Maude and, yes, it's a great soundtrack. I would have liked to have seen the show.

I haven't seen that movie or heard the soundtrack but I'd jump at the chance to see him live singing anything.
