CAT STEVENS
Blue Monday


Previous released on the bootleg "Beatles - Sink In The Can". A very strange compilation of tracks. There's even a bootleg of this bootleg with the original Lee Dorsey song "working in the colemine"credited to the Beatles.
Everything what should not be on that album is ommited to create a fine Cat Steven Album.
The sessions of Cat Stevens with Ringo have now been compiled in the correct order.

Harry Nilsson
Pussycats


When the Walkmen did a note for note rerecording of this, it reminded me to pop it off the shelf and give it a listen. If you can get past the mid-70's production sheen, especially the way the horns sound (shudder), it's a damn fun spin.

Pat Boone
In A Metal Mood

Fifties recording star Pat Boone has become a headbanger ... performing heavy-metal ditties.

Pat Boone has taken flak from fans as well as foes of heavy-metal music since the release of his new album, Pat Boone in a Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy in which he covers the "metal classics" of groups such as Alice Cooper, AC/DC, Judas Priest and Guns 'N' Roses. After the squeaky-clean teen idol of the fifties appeared in a leather vest sporting tattoos, dog collar and earring, a religious-broad-casting network yanked his weekly gospel show because some viewers were convinced Boone had gone to the devil.
