Footsteps in the Light celebrates an
era spanning from 1981 to 2006 of songs by Yusuf Islam.
From his first release of A is for Allah recorded in
1981 for his daughter Hasanah to the more recent Angel
of War and Wild World (bana, baba). The CD album includes
a 24 page lyric booklet with comments by Yusuf on the
reasons for recording each track.
This is an album that looks back at the work of an Artist
who was a pioneer for the development of the nasheed
genre in the West influencing Artists world wide. All
songs feature only voice and drum, the style he adopted
during this period. The album contains 14 tracks including
the Adhaan (Call to prayer) recited by Yusuf.
