In 1974, a young artist by the name of Robin Millar entered the Beatles’ Apple Studios to record his first solo album. The LP was to be produced by Rolling Stone Mick Taylor, who also happened to be Robin’s brother-in-law at that time. Both men worked hard on the album with the aid of Gordon Raitt on bass and Jamie Lane on drums and with the help of legendary session musicians (and Beatles session men!) Billy Preston, Nicky Hopkins and Bobby Keys they made a splendid album which would undoubtedly have achieved great success, had it been released at the time. However, when Mick Taylor announced his departure from the Rolling Stones, the record company withdrew their support for this album and it was shelved. (Only one single made it out, Catch As Catch Can c/w For My Life, the B-side of which was an edit of the originally 7.15 minute track). Unreleased, that is, until now, 45 years later, when Robin granted APCOR the rights to the much belated release of this masterpiece.
CAT’S EYES is a truly undiscovered gem which, hopefully, finally gets the attention it should have received almost half a century ago. The songs are well-crafted, the singing is beautiful and the playing is immaculate. Ten strong songs make up all of the 53 minutes and 32 seconds of the album, which was sourced from the original 2-track Apple master mix-down tapes.
Two versions of the album will be made available:
1) A 12“ vinyl LP on splattered vinyl (Apcor LP03), housed in a gatefold cover (based on the original artwork) and a download voucher for all 10 songs as WAV files.
This edition will be numbered and strictly limited to 300 copies worldwide.
2) A Compact Disc, housed in a gatefold cover (Apcor CD02), with the album’s original 10 tracks plus an additional bonus track, the single edit of FOR MY LIFE.
This edition will be limited to 500 copies worldwide.
The album will appeal to both Rolling Stones collectors and Beatles and Apple aficiandos and we expect especially the vinyl edition to be fully subscribed very quickly, so get your order in right now!
Well, that’s about enough for now – be sure to get your orders in for the brilliant Cat’s Eyes album, it’s our best audio release yet we think, enjoy the rest of February and keep your eyes peeled for more exciting Apcor projects soon!
