Numbers/Izitso/Back to Earth [Box]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Mobile Fidelity reissued three of Cat Stevens' late-'70s records -- Numbers, Izitso and Back to Earth -- as a box set in 1996. These records aren't necessarily among his best, but they have some very strong songs, and this is a good way to acquire them. However, fans should know that this disc costs more than buying the two records separately. For audiophiles, this won't be a problem, since the remastered tapes will be worth the extra money, but less dedicated fans should be aware of the steep retail price of this disc.
