Josie And The Pussycats: Stop, Look, and Listen (The Capitol Recordings)
Josie and the Pussycats was a cartoon series about a multi-cultural, all-girl pop trio that solved mysteries between gigs.
In 1970, Capitol Records released the group’s only album. In 2001, Rhino Homemade re-released the album as a limited print run of five thousand copies, and included songs that had only been available as singles, alternative mixes, and several previously unreleased tracks. (Catalogue Number: RHM2 7783.)
The songs were performed by Cathy Dougher (Josie), Cherie Moor (Melody), and Patrice Holloway, sister of Motown R&B star Brenda Holloway (Valerie).
The CD can cost a minor fortune online, and took me forever to find a reasonably-priced copy.
For everyone else out there who wants to hear these recordings and doesn’t want to shell out $50.00+ for it, I put together a small selection of my favorite songs which you can listen to below…
