ONE REVIEW READS:
This review is from: The Best of Pussycat [Australian Import] (Audio CD)
I remembered watching the video for Mississippi in 1976,featuring the band on a paddlesteamer.The track is brilliant mid seventies pop from the Netherlands but because you never hear it on the radio I found this copy on Amazon and ordered it.
ANOTHER REVIEW READS:
Pussycat were a pop group (four men, three women) from the Netherlands whose music was (for the most part) mainstream seventies pop, mainly recorded in English. They wrote most of their own material but they also recorded a few covers including It's the same old song (Four Tops). They recorded a well-balanced mix of up-tempo and slower songs.
Their claim to fame is a country-styled up-tempo pop song that they wrote about the American heartland - Greenville, Mississippi to be exact. They released the song in the UK, where Dutch pop singers had no previous record of success, and took it all the way to the top of the charts, knocking Dancing queen (Abba) off the top. It sat there for four weeks, eventually being replaced by another classic (If you leave me now - Chicago). In America, Barbara Fairchild, a country singer who learned about Pussycat's song on a visit to Europe, covered the song. Her version became a minor hit on the country charts but deserved to do much better.
Pussycat never repeated the success of Mississippi in the UK, though the follow-up, Smile, made the top thirty. Other songs that I particularly like include Georgie and If you ever come to Amsterdam, though another of my favorite Pussycat tracks (Mexicali lane) is missing from this particular compilation.
You'll see here that there is more to their music than Mississippi.
