Product Description

Pussy Cat was the most tough sounding of Frances 60s y-y girls. She looked to Britain for her inspirations, not home-grown, upbeat Gallic pop. She covered Small Faces, The Moody Blues, The Hollies and The Zombies. Her original songs "she was a rarity and wrote her own" were energised, hard edged, melodic and stomping. She put a French twist on the mod era. As a special bonus, her debut release, a 1965 EP with the band Les Petites Souris is also collected. They were Frances first all-girl band. At age 17, she was their guitarist and wrote their songs. She was a pioneer. Pussy Cat took her name from the Tom Jones song 'What's New Pussycat'. She toured France with him. With extensive liner notes and illustrations, this package is the ultimate tribute to Frances one-woman musical dynamo of the 1960's. This, RPM Internationals latest journey to France, follows definitive releases by Antoine, Jacques Dutronc, Emily, France Gall, Chantal Goya, Johnny Hallyday and Sylvie Vartan. RPM International is the authoritative home of the greatest music from Frances past.

It is a crime that there are no other recordings available from her. This is some of the finest rock and roll ever from France. 16 Oct 2014
By 70senthusiast - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I adore this CD. The genre of ye-ye had caught my eye, but rather than start with a various-artists compilation I wanted to begin with the work of a single artist. The fact this contained the entire 1960s output of Pussy Cat, the cover photo, the name, the few details I could read prior to purchase all piqued my interest.

I could not be more impressed. The work of Evelyne Courtois, with her early band Les Petits Souris and then as solo artist Pussy Cat, is phenomenal. She co-wrote nine of these songs, and her music progressed in very interesting ways during her brief performance career. I cannot understand why she never released a long-playing record (only 4 eps and 3 singles as a solo act).

Her original songs are outstanding. And her covers, unlike the usual pop American/English smash hits chosen by other ye-ye acts, tend toward a harder rock edge and less popular material.

Years before Linda Ronstadt had a major pop smash with "You're No Good", listen to what Pussy Cat did with it as "Mais Pourquoi..." on her first ep in 1966. She rocks it harder than Van Halen did 13 years later. Her punchy French versions of "Kicks", "She's Not There" and "Bus Stop" are all excellent, as are her takes on less familiar Small Faces and early Moody Blues songs.

Her dazzling second solo ep, originals composed by others for her to perform, "La La Lu", "Moi Je Prefere Ma Poupee", "Ba Ba Ba...Boof" and the tender "Je N'Ai Pas Pleure" was a real step forward and should have brought her to a larger audience.

She dives into the more psychedelic, post-Sgt. Pepper flavor with her original singles "Dans Ce Monde Fou" and "Chance" b/w "On Me Dit". Then her final ep from 1969 has an even more mature sound, with three more original compositions, "Cette Nuit", "On Joue" and the wonderful "Hymn Au Soleil" that appears on the occasional various-artist package.

It is a crime that there are no other recordings available from her. This is some of the finest rock and roll ever from France.

I have searched fruitlessly among the hundreds of Eurodisco compilations, hoping to find any of her late-70's return to performance recordings under her various stage names Candy Sylver, Madame, Eve Silver, or Dolly Doll, have not found any of them on CD. She wrote a few scattered songs recorded by others in the early 70's when she wasn't performing.

For now, this CD is all that can be had. This lady was a unique, guitar-playing songwriter who deserves to be heard.
There are some excellent covers and tunes on this CD 20 Dec 2014

What's New Pussycat? There are some excellent covers and tunes on this CD, but ln the effort to be complete, the CD runs ouf of oomph here and there and the songs can get redundant, but nevertheless a worthy purchase for sure....

Pussycat 23 July 2014
By THOMAS C. BIAGI - Published on Amazon.com

Interesting as most of the music coming from France was pop and disco, but the musician's and her voice was like many
of the U.S. and England bands. Great sounds.
