THE CRYIN' SHAMES - WHAT'S NEWS PUSSYCAT


THE CRYIN' SHAMES - "Please Stay" / "What's News Pussycat" (Decca F 12340) February 1966

Liverpool group The Cryin' Shames have appeared on many compilations over the years. Their harmonica driven R&B wailer can be found on the other side of "Please Stay" which incidentally is a love ballad with a Tornados style backbeat.

I much prefer "What's News Pussycat" a 64/65 throwback, produced by Joe Meek. Check out the grainy vintage video of The Cryin' Shames lip-synching "Pussycat" presumably for a TV Show which can be found on YouTube.

It's rumoured that an albums worth of unreleased Cryin' Shames recordings exist. Maybe one day those will be located and released.
