Moon & Star Cover Songs Revealed
At long last, these
cover songs sung by Linda Ronstadt/Dr John on the 'Moon & Star' ABC In Concert on
November 9, 1973, have been uncovered and ready for Cat Fans, as well as Linda Ronstadt
and Dr John fans alike to enjoy. These cover versions like the rest of the Cat Stevens
concert have been stored away from fans for the best part of 30 years. Though a few
bits and pieces of the Cat Stevens concert have surfaced through bootleggers, sadly the
three songs performed by Linda Ronstadt and Dr John that night as a tribute to Cat and his
music were never to be heard of again. Fortunately for us, Cat Stevens/Linda Ronstadt Fan
Larry Clark decided to clean off his old Reel to Reel Recorder which had been stored away
for years. In the process, he placed on the deck a tape from 1973, realizing he was
listening to the reel to reel tape he recorded year before, of the FM simulcast of the
Moon and Star concert in its entirety, including the 1973 commercials.
So by courtesy of Larry
Clark, Majicat is happy to present the 3 most sought after cover songs of
Ronstadts' - 'Time/Fill My Eyes - Real Audio
This song is classic Linda
Ronstadt, with a bit of a country feel to it. She gives Cat, a Joan Baez
sound. I found myself swaying to the beat. You'll love the banjo.
Linda Ronstadts' - 'The First Cut Is The Deepest' - Real Audio
- This is definately my favorite, again it has
a country feel with an all girl band twist.
Dr. Johns' - 'Popstar' - Real
What can I say, but that
this is Dr John at his best. What a performance! Dr John jazzes Popstar and
re-orchestrates the song completely. What a thrill it had to be for Cat to sit back stage
and watch this performance.
