Freddie Salem & The Wild Cats 'Cat Dance' CANDY165 / He may not be internationally well known but Freddie Salem is one of the most impressive American rock guitarists to have emerged in the 1980s.

As a member of Southern guitar gods the Outlaws, Freddie injected feisty guitar pyrotechnics into the band's most commercially successful albums like 'Ghost Riders' and 'Los Hombres Malos', before cutting loose to record a solo album. This was his debut, and so far only, solo album, recorded for the Epic (Sony) label in 1982 and it showcased Freddie in valedictory mood, looking to spread his wings with various shades of guitar-fuelled mayhem.

Self-produced and recorded in New York City, the album captured a healthy mixture of Manhattan's manic pace whilst still boasting a Southern rock tinge, proving that you can take the man out of the country but you can't take the country out of the man. 'Cat Dance' is a fine album indeed, boasting a healthy selection of solid and memorable hard rock tracks and blessed with lashings of Freddie's blistering guitar work, including hip thrusting riffs and lightning fast solos. Released just as SONY laid off half of their US staff in a frantic cost cutting exercise, the album failed to make a commercial impact and was left to find its own audience."

24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 3,500 word essay about the making of the album, new interview with Freddie Salem, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos all spread out over a 12 page full colour booklet.
