    Gnu has dropped the ball again, so I’ll use Wednesday to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the release of Cat Stevens’ “Tea For The Tillerman” — one of the best albums I have in my collection. Here’s a taste:

      om6,
      I’m right with you. This is one of my favorite all time albums. I followed it and went from vinyl to cassette to CD.

      I got shivers as soon as he started singing!!

      Thanks for reminding me.

    Tillerman inspired me to add some tea to the coffee. At least for this one day.

    Sometimes a great interpreter of song can make even the dopiest of lyrics work.

      im6,
      You’re hitting on all cylinders today. Blossom Dearie graces Coffee ever now and then. I do love her voice.

      im6,
      Okay, this one I didn’t know at all. Tea is such a civilized drink, a ritual.

      My mother was a huge Frank Sinatra fan. She had this album, and I do remember this song-love the sugar and tea connection.

      im6,
      I was reminded of Rick Nelson and his China doll in old Hong Kong. I think it might have been okay when it was released in 1965 by The Four Tops, but now it is non PC I suspect. (Hart’s was in 1966)
