45rpm 7" Vinyl Single!
On September 27, 2016, Yusuf/Cat Stevens, took to the most sacred stage in
Nashville to awe the sold-out Ryman Auditorium crowd with his persistent musical
transcendence. The day prior, Yusuf took to another Nashville stage entirely and
performed to no one in particular - a set for himself, of two songs from his
earliest days. That stage was the Third Man Records Blue Room, and that set,
consisting of the A-sides from Stevens' first two singles, was recorded
direct-to-acetate on Third Man's 1955 Scully lathe and is now released as the
second offering in Third Man's Blue Room Sessions series.
With artwork by world renowned illustrator Jess Rotter, this double A-side 7"
features "I Love My Dog" and "Matthew and Son" performed by Yusuf and his
pared-down touring band with palpable intimacy and a rare calm in the midst of a
busy world tour.
