Back to Earth is the eleventh studio album released by the British singer/songwriter Cat Stevens. Yusuf recorded this album in November 1978, re-uniting with his producer from the early 1970s, Paul Samwell-Smith, and arranger Del Newman, which includes his guitarist, Alun Davies, also his drummer Gerry Conway, neither of whom had appeared on Stevens' previous 1977 album "Izitso". Alun co–wrote two new songs. The old team had now come back together to complete the final record.

Numbers is the ninth studio album, and the first concept album by singer/songwriter Cat Stevens released in November 1975. The album Numbers, subtitled "A Pythagorean Theory Tale," was based on a fictional planet in a far-off galaxy named Polygor. The album included a booklet with excerpts from a planned book of the same name written by Chris Bryant and Allan Scott. The booklet features pen-and-ink illustrations drawn by Stevens. It was the only album he recorded using the name Cat Stevens after his conversion to Islam in December 1977. It was also the last album of contemporary western music that he recorded until An Other Cup, nearly 30 years later. Although he wanted to retire from popular music after his religious conversion, Islam owed his record company Island/A&M one more "Cat Stevens" album under his recording contract. On 8 December 1977 Stevens was awarded the "Sun Peace Award" by the Symphony for the United Nations in New York City

Visit the Gallery to see the many phases of Cat's evolution: the impressionable London schoolboy; the 1960s pop star; the world renowned poetic troubadour whose spiritual quest led him to leave the limelight in pursuit of answers to life's greatest questions; and finally, the returning traveller seeking to build bridges between the disparate cultures that shaped him.
