Deep Cuts From 1971- “The Wind”- Cat Stevens. I kind of assumed that “The Wind” by Cat Stevens was a hit single- but it wasn’t even released as a single. Cat Stevens did have three Top 40 hits from his 1971 Teaser And The Firecat album- Cat Stevens fifth album which peaked at #2 in the US Top 200 Album chart- “Wild World” #11, “Moonshadow” #30 and “Peace Train” #7. “The Wind” one of Cat’s introspective songs was the lead off track on the album. The song was used in two films that I really enjoy – Almost Famous and Rushmore.
