Comments: Extremely nice quality. In 2006, The last time Yusuf played live from NYC @ Lincoln Center's Allen Room for KCRW.
The quality was Very, Very bad, loads of tech problems. NOT THIS TIME! I think this to be one of, if not, "the best"
quality recording of any artist I've managed to grab off KCRW to date. And, that said... The 2006 Yusuf KCRW to be one of my
absolute worst quality recordings of these live sets. The difference is vast. This pre-recorded set has excellent
Vocal and Instrument Definition! Bright, Clear, Clean. Static Free. With Excellent Stereo Separation.
I added a Fade out on the last track as there was no artist talk during the "Outro".
Only useless information, and what would have been the sound of "Jason On The Inhale"
Nothing Was Lost!
And, this cleans it up nicely and creates some trailing silence for the playback and finish.

Yusuf Islam (born Steven Demetre Georgiou, 21 July 1948),best known by his former stage name Cat Stevens,
is a British musician of Greek Cypriot and Swedish ancestry. He is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist,
educator, philanthropist and prominent convert to Islam.
As Cat Stevens, he has sold over 60 million albums around the world since the late 1960s. His albums
Tea for the Tillerman and Teaser and the Firecat were both certified as Triple Platinum by the RIAA
in the United States; his album Catch Bull at Four sold half a million copies in the first two weeks
of release alone, and was Billboard's number-one LP for three consecutive weeks. He has also earned
two ASCAP songwriting awards in consecutive years, for "The First Cut Is the Deepest", which has
been a hit single for four different artists.
Stevens converted to Islam at the height of his fame in December, 1977, and adopted his Muslim name,
Yusuf Islam, the following year. In 1979 he auctioned all his guitars away for charity and left his music
career to devote himself to educational and philanthropic causes in the Muslim community. He has been given
several awards for his work in promoting peace in the world, including 2003's World Award, the 2004 Man for
Peace Award and the 2007 Mediterranean Prize for Peace. In 2006, he returned to pop music, with his first
album of new pop songs in 28 years, entitled An Other Cup. He now goes by the single name Yusuf.
He currently lives with his wife and children in London, and spends part of each year in Dubai.
His newest album, Roadsinger, was released on May 5, 2009.
