Editors’ Notes Tea for the Tillerman is Cat Stevens’ fourth album and his second to appear in 1970; it includes many of his best-known songs. “But I Might Die Tonight” was featured in the 1970 film Deep End, while four other songs appeared in the 1971 classic film Harold & Maude. “Wild World” became a No. 11 hit single and one of his most covered songs, while “Where Do the Children Play?,” “Hard Headed Woman,” “Sad Lisa” (brilliantly covered by Marianne Faithfull), “Into White," and “Father and Son” are all at the core of Stevens’ deep catalog. His warm, expressive voice matched with gentle songs that expressed the difficulties of getting along in an impersonal world created a connection with young fans in similar situations. This deluxe edition includes demos for “Wild World” and “Miles from Nowhere,” along with live versions of most of the album tracks. The live tapes from Doug Weston’s legendary Troubadour club in L.A. (“Longer Boats,” “Into White”) are particularly essential, capturing Stevens in his prime.
