Matthew & Son
Out of stock
Cat Stevens, having grown up above his parent’s cafe in London’s West End, made his emergence from the folk club scene with the release of his debut album, Matthew and Son, in 1967. The album was released under the newly established Deram label, which was a subsidiary of Decca, and peaked at number 7 on the UK charts. With the support of hit singles “I Love My Dog” and “Matthew and Son,” the latter reaching number 2 in the UK charts, Cat Stevens quickly became a teen idol.
Notably, during this time, other artists such as The Tremoloes recorded Cat’s songs. The Tremoloes had a hit with “Here Comes My Baby” in 1967, which helped to establish Cat’s reputation as a gifted songwriter.
