This is a wonderful Bootleg
Video from a November 1970 French TV Production though it is very short in legnth, it is
such a sweet video and a must for all Cat fans. Cat is wearing the lime green pants
and Black T-shirt with the green leaves across it, which is known as the Tillerman
outfit. He sings only 4 songs, but each song is a pure gem, especially this beautiful live
rendition of Katmandu, which Cat performs solely on his own. Alun Davies is the only
backup Cat has during the other 3 songs, as was the case for most of the early '70' gigs.
Another reason this video bootleg is such a nice treat, is because between each number,
Cat is interviewed by French interviewer.
CAT STEVENS QUOTES:
After Lady D'Abanville:
" For me, the
problem with most of the things is people trying to make most of the world on one
take away the individual person. Once you take away this, you lose everything and the
whole world goes mad"
"Make your own
friends and not have enemies, and be true to your friends and yourself"
After Wild World:
" Its the
worst thing for me to rely on something artificial, I say something to put in, to make
yourself aw fulfilled. The thing is I um sometimes think smoking is OK, but it is not a
way of life."
The French Interviewer
asks, " in all the songs you have now, what is the one you like best singing?
Cat : " I think um
" Maybe Youre Right , Maybe Youre Wrong"
story of someone understanding one another and saying you know what, I dont want to
fight, I dont want to leave, I just want to tell you that this is you, this is me,
so OK, lets live."

video copy he has is in the NTSC format and living in Europe, it made the picture come out
as B&W. Thank you once again Bruce for these wonderful Stills.
