From Beethoven to The Beach Boys via King Kong: The Musical, these are the 13 pieces of music that shaped Yusuf/Cat Stevens as an artist


Procol Harum - A Salty Dog

They were a contemporary of mine and were the British equivalent of The Band. They were incredibly original with songs that still sound good today. I record very few covers, but one of them is on my new album – a Gary Brooker and Keith Reid song called The Devil Came From Kansas. I just wanted to pay a tribute to a great British band.
