A cover of Sam Cooke’s “Another Saturday Night” gave Cat Stevens his last Top 20 hit. (Cooke took it into the Top 20 back in 1963.) It’s a fun song, given an island feel by Stevens, but it’s no better than Grateful Dead’s versions of “Dancin’ in the Street” or “Good Lovin’.” Like those songs, “Another Saturday Night” may be an indication that Stevens was having trouble coming up with another hit. The original single featured the Buddha track “Home In The Sky” on the flip side. A subsequent Canadian single (the version I own) substitutes the Buddha single “Oh Very Young.” Both sides on the Canadian single credit Cat Stevens’ Greatest Hits as the source for these songs, though (as with all of the Cat Stevens’ singles I’ve encountered) these are not single edits.
