This clip, is just a small portian of the Ian McCrae A.M.P. Radio Program in Australia, which among other things, broadcast this event below during the Cat Stevens 1972 Australian Tour.

Excerpt from the Chris Charlesworth Bio ' The Definative Career Biography of Cat Stevens' page 53.

The Australian leg of the tour was particularly hectic. Arriving at Sydney Airport on August 20, Steve was mobbed by fans, an event which prompted newspapers to compare his arrival with the scenes that greeted the Beatles when they arrived on Australian soil in 1964.

'As soon as Stevens emerged from the customs gate, police and wildly enthusiastic fans surrounded him,' reported one daily newspaper, The Age, ' Police had trouble protecting the pop singer. Police formed a ring round the stunned Stevens and tried to rush him to a waiting car but the fans broke through police lines, causing him to stumble and almost fall, as they tore at his clothing. The screaming girls followed Stevens out of the terminal, milling around the car and clambering on to the bonnet and boot in an attempt to catch a glimpse of idol.'
