Super Deluxe 40th Anniversary Numbered, Limited Edition 2LP, 5CD & Blu-Ray Box Set!
Includes 60-Page Hardcover Book & Memorabilia!

In 1978, after having sold millions of records and become one of the biggest international artists of the 1970s, Cat Stevens decided to step out of the rock star spotlight and walk away. That year, he was to release his final album under that name. The appropriately-titled Back To Earth was his parting gift: an album that saw the London-born singer saying farewell to his fans, while obliquely explaining his decision to quit in songs such as "Last Love Song" and "Just Another Night".

This super deluxe box set includes the original album (remastered at Abbey Road Studios) on both CD and LP together with a further three discs of previously unheard tracks Butterfly and Toy Heart, demos, out-takes, live and rare recordings. This special edition also includes material from UNICEF's 1979 Year Of The Child concert, the singer's then historic last live performance as Cat Stevens on CD, LP and Blu-Ray, in addition to memorabilia and a fully art-worked 60-page hardcover book telling the story of the album.

Long overdue for re-evaluation, Back To Earth is a brilliant and fascinating album capturing Yusuf/Cat Stevens at a defining point in his life.
