CAT MOTHER AND THE ALL NIGHT NEWSBOYS: The Street Giveth…and the Street Taketh Away. CD

Let’s get the preliminaries over with right away by stating that this album, the 1969 debut release from Cat Mother and the All Night Newsboys, was co-produced by none other than Jimi Hendrix (they were long-time friends, the band opened for the Experience on tour, and had the misfortune of sharing the same manager, Mike Jeffrey). But Cat Mother was far more than a footnote to a superstar’s career. Not only did this record score a Top 40 hit with “Good Old Rock ‘N Roll,” but it’s also a marvelously eclectic affair beloved by record collectors of every stripe—just do a quick Google search—with elements of folk, country and late ‘60s riff rock alongside the hit’s tongue-in-cheek revivalism. This album’s been briefly reissued on CD twice before and commands huge sums online; it’s not JUST for Hendrix completists (though they will want it, too)!
