Aleecat Live in Japan
This is a live rock album recorded in 1990 at venues in Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka Japan, featuring one of rock's most endearing eccentrics, Alan 'The Aleecat' Merrill. The material was for the most part written by Merrill around that time period, and the songs have appeared in studio versions later, on various album releases such as 'Pink Soup,' 'Chemical Reaction,' 'Boy's Life' and 'Tawny Tracks.' Joining him on this tour are an all star cast featuring Robin LeMesurier (Rod Stewart Group, Farm Dogs) on guitar, Donnie Kisselbach (The Turtles, Derringer) on bass, The Coconuts (of Kid Creole & fame) on backing vocals, Shinoyan (The Happenings Four) on keyboards, Hiroshi Oguchi (Vodka Collins, Pyg, The Tempters) on drums, and The Upskirt Horns rounding up the entourage. This is a real live album, with no post production fixes. It's a straight off the mixing board album, raw and live rock, as it should be.
