THE KITTENS - IT'S GOTTA BE LOVE


Signed while still in high school by brilliant arranger/ producer Johnny Pate (ABC Paramount's Chicago a&r man), The Kittens were a Chicago group whose talent far outweighed their commercial success. None of their records (they also cut a few sides for Chess) ever sold or got any airplay to speak of. This is certainly justified by how long it took me to find a copy of this record; it hardly EVER turns up, and is in my opinion far rarer than records that sell for ten times what this one does!

The girls had a perfect vocal blend, and Pate's arrangement is top notch.

from 1965...

Rare indeed. A quick check of Gemm Music finds only 1 copy being offered for $165.00. Quite out of my league but a great record nonetheless. Thanks for posting.
