Cats Under the Stars - Louie Louie 7" (1982)

This record is probably a one-off. I know nothing about the band and I have not found any information online about any other releases. As you can see by the record sleeve, they were from Minneapolis, Minnesota and the title track is a ska-inspired cover of the Richard Berry classic. Nowhere near as ska as the Toots and the Maytals version, in fact, not very ska at all. But it is sold on eBay every now and then as a ska record.

It's not very good but it is very rare.

A - Louie Louie

B - Blue Ghosts
