Yusuf Islam meets Cat Stevens

Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens) has produced a masterpiece of a new Album, entitled Roadsinger (To Warm You Through the Night).
I bought this yesterday and it hasn't been off the player, at home or in the car.
This is the one we've been waiting for since Yusuf decided to take up the guitar again.
Probably the best track is the haunting title Roadsinger, but I specially enjoyed the powerful statement of faith in All Kinds of Roses.
If this had ben recorded in 1969 it would have been instantly recognisable as Cat Stevens. The artwork on the album covers and inlay have some fabulously nostalgic pictures of Yusuf's early life.
My recommendation is go get some!

What's that twittering?

Are you at Twitter?

I find it utterly addictive. The latest way to keep in touch with customers, contacts, fans etc.

I found a useful link to the influential South By South West Festival in Austin Texas.

Jeff Healey R.I.P

It was with great sadness that I heard of the death of Jeff Healey, the Canadian guitarist probably best asociated ith Patrick Swayze and Roadhouse in 1989.
His untimely passing at the tender age of 41 robs the world of another great musician.

His unorthodox style of knee-mounted guitar marked him out from the crowd.

There was a new album Mess of Blues planned for later this year.

Jeff passed away on 2nd March 2008 after a lifelong battle with the cancer which robbed him of his sight when he was a young child.

There's a full account of his life and career on Wiki
