People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry.

During his hospital-dictated year of bedrest, Stevens began writing a catalogue of songs to fill far more than his next album. either that or he is reffering to a mona bone jakon which is an object used in altering the substrate or curled end of a wind driven bone-made device we know nothing about. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals.The reason I did not choos 5 stars is that I play it in the car and there must be something wrong with the actual CD as it does not behave like the others I play in my car. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives.

I never connected with the later albums, (I thought he went a bit - Cliff Richard) but listening again to 'Sad Lisa' from Tea for the Tillerman, his next album, it is possible to hear a common thread. Sounding as fresh as the day it was recorded, the original album is represented here by a brand new 2020 remaster of Mona Bone Jakon by Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road, overseen by original producer Paul Samwell-Smith 2020 on CD, as well as a new 2020 Mix by David Hefti on both CD and LP. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. Presented here in a brand new 2020 Remastered version on CD, as well as in a new 2020 Mix (by David Hefti) on CD and LP, the Super Deluxe Edition also includes an exclusive third CD of previously unreleased demos, and a fourth CD featuring 18 live performances from 1970/71. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Journalist Robert Chalmers reiterated this point for a 2003 interview with Yusuf Islam for The Independent on Sunday when he wrote: "When [Stevens] re-emerged in 1969, he had more than 40 new songs and released three triumphant albums in 15 months on Chris Blackwell's Island label: Mona Bone Jakon (his pet word for penis), Tea for the Tillerman and Teaser and the Firecat. The tapes have been lovingly rendered at Abbey Road under the supervision of the original producer and the result is brilliant. IF YOU WANT AN OVERVIEW OF HIS WHOLE CAREER GO FOR ONE OF THE COMPILATIONS - BUT TO ME THESE THREE ALBUMS REPRESENT CAT AT HIS VERY PEAK.

What rescues the record is, taken as a whole, it is a complete and dramatic journey of someone who is looking here and there and asking a lot of questions and ultimately, seeing fame and fortune for what it is. His second album was a commercial failure and in the autumn of 1968, he was hospitalized, with a diagnosis of tuberculosis and a collapsed lung. Mona Bone Jakon, his first album for Island, showcased a markedly different change in direction for Cat, unveiling with it a remarkable set of new compositions that included classics like Trouble, Maybe You’re Right and the UK hit single Lady D’Arbanville.

The set also includes an exclusive third CD of previously unreleased demos, and a fourth featuring 18 live performances from 1970/71. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. The symbolism of the cover artwork was related to Stevens' original intended title for the album, The Dustbin Cried the Day the Dustman Died.

To commemorate the album’s 50th anniversary comes this expanded 2CD edition which includes a stunning new 2020 remaster of ‘Mona Bone Jakon’ by Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road, overseen by original producer Paul Samwell-Smith, plus a second disc of demos and live rarities and booklet with full sleevenotes. Mona Bone Jakon’, his first album for Island, showcased a markedly different change in direction for Cat, unveiling with it a remarkable set of new compositions that included classics like ‘Trouble’, ‘Maybe You’re Right’ and the UK hit single ‘Lady D’Arbanville’. Later, he revised his review to a B− and expressed a newfound dislike for the songs " Lady D'Arbanville", " Trouble", and "I Wish, I Wish".The album sold slowly (at first) but over time has been certified Gold for sales/shipments of more than 500,000 copies in the United States. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment.
