Monday music: “Longer Boats”

Born Steven Demetre Georgiou, the singer/songwriter who has gone by Cat Stevens, Yusuf Islam, and these days just as Yusuf has a magnificent voice and wrote some amazing songs. Tea for the Tillerman, Teaser and the Firecat, and Catch Bull at Four are albums of my childhood, and ones I associate with my happy youth.

Yusuf recently released a reimagining of Tea for the Tillerman on the occasion of its 50th anniversary, and here’s a song from the original album that I particularly like, “Longer Boats.”
