Munich 2009 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Bayern3, Munich, Germany, April 23, 2009. Very good radio broadcast.

To promote his new album, Roadsinger, Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) is embarking on a world tour. But first is a stop at the Bayern3 radio station in Munich, Germany.

It could be the intimate setting but the mostly acoustic set-up is ideal for Yusuf’s music - gentle guitar folk - but that doesn’t mean he can’t be biting as he did when he recounted his detention by the FBI in Nashville in 2004 (probably said with a wry smile on his face). He said, “I don’t hold it against them… I got a song out of it,” before going into Boots And Sand.

This is a short set that should intrigue fans to search out Yusuf’s new album and new listeners to do some backtracking.

Thanks to jdf for sharing the tracks on the Dime site and the xlnt77 for the artwork.
