Due to a long time growing interest into local '60s rock, most band stories, even of those who did put out rare and local records, have since been written. Not so with Connecticut band Catherine's Horse. Their sole album dates from 1969 and was released only in an inner sleeve and no cover. Due to its rarity it is still a largely unknown release among today's record collectors and honoured with five stars in Hans Pokora's '1001 Record Collectors Dream Book'. But those who happen to be familiar with it, appreciate it for the fresh sound of the music and the clear production. That and the fact, that it's an amazing white blues rock album with a strong garage attitude provided by five high school students who never played professionally. The tracks are nearly all cover versions of classic, often moody blues tracks reminiscent of early Paul Butterfield Blues Band or Blues Project. Includes long time standards such as 'Good Morning Little School Girl', 'Think Twice', 'One More Mile' or 'Can't Keep From Cryin'' mixed with covers of Jimmy Brenston's 'Rocket 88' or Jagger/Richards' 'Good Times, Bad Times'. The only group original 'Sun Going Down' hints at the talent and potential the band had and rounds off the group's effortless white electric bluesrock expertise. As the vinyl release, this CD release comes with the originally intended coloured cover-art. The detailed booklet has the band's history as related by original members Roger Goodspeed, Jay Geary and Putnam Smith, alongside rare photos and memorabilia.
