Yusuf / Cat Stevens celebrates 1971's landmark album with this extensive 4CD, Blu-Ray, 2LP and 7" set in a rigid clamshell box. Includes 41 previously unreleased demos, sessions and live tracks and 21 previously unreleased TV performances. Also contains a 50th Anniversary Remaster of the album overseen by original album producer Paul Samwell-Smith on CD and Blu-Ray HD audio plus a 7" single of "Moonshadow", a 44-page 12" soft-cover replica of the original Teaser and the Firecat book - written and illustrated by Yusuf - and an extensive 108-page hard-cover 12" essay book.

Few trends in the reissue market are as welcome as the number of recent big boxed sets that allow fans to immerse themselves fully in the work of certain artists or certain albums. They take up a lot of space on the record shelves but offer a bounty of material worth revisiting frequently. A great example is this 50th anniversary re-release of Cat Stevens' folk-pop masterpiece Teaser and the Firecat... I was particularly delighted by the 7" included that featured the soundtrack, with narration by comedian Spike Milligan, for an animated Teaser film released in 1977, and the thick booklet that includes testimonials on Stevens' greatness by Carly Simon, Rick Wakeman, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and Melvins' Dale Crover. A testament to how Stevens' impact is still resonating far and wide, even after five decades
