He's An Old Cat
Brian Gari, who has produced many oldies reissues on the likes of Neil Sedaka, Paul Petersen, Shelley Fabares, James Darren as well as on his grandfather, Eddie Cantor, has put together a 16 track collection of rarities with this new release. Due to the overwhelming response to the YouTube video of his song 'Where Did the Music Go?' performed by former Critter Don Ciccone, Gari has decided to include this previously unreleased track as well as Ciccone's rare 1972 outing (under the name Don Marley) of 'Bicycle Ride.' Four Season members Ciccone & Lee Shapiro contribute their vocal & instrumental talents to several of the songs on the album. Additionally, Peter Anders (The Videls, The Trade Winds, The Innocence) has returned for a solo performance here. There is also a tribute song to Laura Nyro as well as the original demo of Gari's song recorded by the Tokens 'If Our Songs Still Make It (Why Can't We?)' dedicated to the late Ellie Greenwich. There are also two touching songs about cats featured on this album.
