Yusuf Islam releases historic DVD

Yusuf Islam

Story by Jack Foley

ON March 1, 2007, Yusuf Islam made a historic return to the live arena performing a full length set to an invited audience at The Porchester Hall in London.

This was the first time that Yusuf had performed a full concert in over 28 years.

Included in the set were classic renditions of Peace Train and Father & Son as well as a newly-worked version of the all time favourite Wild World.

Yusuf also performed a selection of tracks from his gold 2006 album An Other Cup, described as “disarmingly beautiful” by Mojo among many critical plaudits.

Since June 25, the concert will be available on a DVD entitled Yusuf’s Café Session.

The package also includes an insightful one hour documentary A Few Good Songs. The 60-minute film, originally entitled Imagine and shown on BBC1 in May 2006, features Yusuf talking openly to Alan Yentob about his extraordinary life experiences. It now includes new exclusive unseen footage.

The DVD comes in single disc form in a six-panel Digipack, complete with 16-page booklet and poster as well as the videos to Heaven/Where True Love Goes and Midday (Avoid City After Dark).
