About this deal

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. Not to keen on the strange "Popstar" or the title track Mona Bone Jakon but on the whole it is a superb album! THE NEXT TWO ALBUMS PERFECTED THE NEW STYLE - TEA FOR THE TILLERMAN HIS PEAK IN TERMS OF SONGWRITING, TEASER AND THE FIRECAT HIS MOST COMMERCIAL. 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. There were also lighter songs: "Pop Star" showcased Stevens' dramatic change in voice by satirising the triviality of celebrity.

Song like Katmandu are all very well but the sentiment and the tinkly glockenspiel verge on consigning it to the schlock hopper. Produced by Paul Samwell-Smith (formerly of The Yardbirds), the album featured the single “Lady D’Arbanville” as well as the fan favourites “I Wish, I Wish” and “Maybe You’re Right”. To commemorate the album’s 50th anniversary comes this new 180-gram vinyl version containing a stunning new 2020 remaster of ‘Mona Bone Jakon’ by Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road, overseen by original producer Paul Samwell-Smith.Considerato che costa poco più di un pacchetto di sigarette, sarebbe un delitto non inserirlo nella propria discoteca.

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’.

This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc.
