Yusuf/Cat Stevens shot to stardom 50 years ago with music and lyrics that were full of poetry and spirituality. The year 1970 saw the release of two seminal albums, "Tea for the Tillerman" and "Mona Bone Jakon." To mark the anniversary of their release, Yusuf is not just re-releasing them, but reimagining them. He joins the show to discuss his life and career, and to give an impromptu performance.
