I believe Homeland Security has it locked in a vault somewhere, something about terror ties & such.
:cool:

Yeah!! - They claim it contains a secret & subtle "message" - in Arabic.., of course. Somthin' about political/social "commentary"... http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif

I mean he is ( or was ) a rock star - obviously the mindless masses ( and especially those musician types) are gonna blindly follow anything he says - subliminal or not - lets see -what was it

"ride the peace train" -
"bring tea for the tillerman"-

now is there an entertainment icon who can tell me which vehicle I am going to buy next? Lord knows I can not make those decisions for myself as long as mega stars are out there to contemplate for me.

all apologies - to who ever is going to take offense here

I have Cheryl (Sheryl?) Crow's version. Will that help? If so I could fax/send you a copy.

You might try the airport in Bangor, Maine. Just ask for some cat named Yusuf Islam. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif

You can probably get the chords from ALLTABS or Olga or any other guitar tab site...as I recall it was a pretty simple tune, so it should be available...unless Tom Ridge has caught on...tee hee
Good Luck

There is a bit of a shadow over the "peacenik" aspect of Cat Stevens. I hadn't heard of him for several years, until the Ayatollah Khomeni pronounced a death sentence on Salman Rushdie for publishing "The Satanic Verses". The AK felt that some aspect of the book showed less-than-required respect to Mohammed, and essentially invited anyone to kill Rushdie to erase the purported insult. Rushdie had to go underground for quite some time. Meanwhile Cat Stevens went public with his approval of the AK's pronouncement. Life is strange. BTW, I read Rushdie's book (sales actually got boosted by some secondary threats the AK made about anyone who would buy it) and I simply didn't see anything death-worthy about it.

Forgive me for lack of mando content here, but it seems like it has background relevance to some of the other postings above. I don't feel threatened by Cat Stevens, but I no longer think of him as an early-seventies benign spirit "High on the Peace Train" either. -- PDW

Yeah, but I still find him far from threatening, just anothr middle-aged peace-nic like so many of us.

Absolutely. If the guy had only used more vowels in his name, duuuude, he'd never have endorsed the Ayatollah! -- twaaang

I remember reading something someone said in "defense" of the poor, rich, disillusioned/misunderstood young man John Walker Li(u)ndt(sp.) of several years ago. After he got caught and arrested.. : (paraphrasing)"...well yes, he did enlist and go to their terrorist-training camps..., BUT, he didn't KILL ANYONE!" -{emphasis mine} - go figure.. ; case closed.... http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif
