More Info:


''Mona Bone Jakon'' is the third album released by singer-songwriter Cat Stevens. The album was released In July, 1970 on the Island Records label in the United Kingdom, and A&M record label in the United States and Canada. After a meteoric start to his career, surprising even his original producer at Deram Records with the hit singles "I Love My Dog", "Matthew and Son" and "I'm Gonna Get Me a Gun",

Stevens' debut album, ''Matthew and Son'' began charting as well. However, after the pressure for a repeat album of the same calibre, Stevens, considered a young teen sensation, was overwhelmed by a new lifestyle, as well as the demands of writing, recording, performing, publicity appearances, and touring. In the fall of 1968, he collapsed, with the diagnosis of tuberculosis and a collapsed lung. For over a year, whilst recovering, Stevens virtually disappeared from the British pop scene. ''Mona Bone Jakon'' is notable not only for his return, but for the emergence of a very different artist. - Wikipedia
