Produced by John Lennon during his infamous “Lost Weekend” period in 1974, Pussy Cats is often regarded as one of Nilsson’s weaker albums due to the fact that he lost his voice halfway through the recording of it. Keeping the news from Lennon out of fear he’d abandon the project, Nilsson forged ahead, recording a slew of rock n’ roll classics and engaging in revelry with a huge cast of backing musicians that included Ringo, Keith Moon, Bobby Keys and Sneaky Pete Kleinow. While it’s entertaining to hear Nilsson run through these oldies (each coated in a layer of Phil Spector glaze), the real treats here are his originals, which stack up as some of the most engaging in his entire catalog — namely “Don’t Forget Me” and “All My Life.”
