Everyone has their favorite Cat Stevens song. And I'll probably play most of those too. But I wanted to spend an hour exploring his 44-year music career, and be sure to share some songs that you most likely have not heard.

Here's Cat in 1967, when he was cat stevensin the process of becoming a pop star. After two successful albums and sold out concert tours, Cat got sick (tuberculosis), spending months in the hospital, near death, and going inward, finally emerging with enough material for the two brilliant albums, "Mona Bone Jakon" and "Tea for the Tillerman." His place in music history would be solid if he never recorded another note, but of course he did--throughout the 70s and 80s, and, after a brief hiatus, in the 00s, under his Muslim name Yusuf.
