Cat Stevens, who goes by the name Yusef Islam these days, was recently announced as
2014 inductee into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Stevens released a number of top-
albums in the early '70s before he converted to Islam and left his career as a pop singer
behind him. For today's Full Show Friday we look back at a Cat Stevens performance
from 1971 that aired on The BBC.
Stevens's mellow but moving music is the perfect antidote for the cold and snowy weather
many of our readers are experiencing this Friday. Cat performed seven of his most-beloved
songs in London back in 1971 as part of The BBC's In Concert series of broadcasts.
Included within are takes on "Wild World" and "Father And Son." Watch this video to see
Stevens was voted in to the Rock Hall:
