All of the key tracks -- digitally remastered from the original two-track masters -- are here "Wild World," "The Wind," "Another Saturday Night," "Moonshadow," "Where Do the Children Play?" as well as deeper cuts like "18th Avenue Kansas City Nightmare" and all 18 minutes of "Foreigner Suite."

Also included is Stevens' most recent composition. Originally released as a digital download, the emotional and surprisingly rousing "Indian Ocean" was recorded for Stevens' Small Kindness charity to benefit children from the Aceh region who were affected by the December 2004 tsunami.

    awsome revue of 30+ songs

    I was young boy when Cat Stevens was recording and popular. My faves are his version of Here Comes My Baby, Wild World, Angelsea, Peace Train and Moonshadow. He is One Cool Dude.
