Cats In Space had a busy 2017 live-wise, supporting the likes of Thunder (where this show was recorded at Cardiff Motorpoint Arena in March), Deep Purple and Status Quo, along with festival appearances at Cropredy and Phil Collins at Hyde Park. This seven song live album gives those who have yet to see them live a chance to hear how good live they are.
The set is reliant on their debut album ‘Too Many Gods’ as their latest album ‘Scarecrow’ had yet to be released. The band’s first single ‘Mr. Heartache’ a stand out, along with the epic ‘Greatest Story Never Told’. The latter shows how confident the band are in the strength of their songs as not many support acts would be keen to do this.
Paul Manzi is spot on vocally, whilst Greg Hart and Dean Howard are a perfect guitar duo, riffing when required and both capable of playing tasty solos when required. ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’ is made for the live stage, a fast paced tune and ‘Only In Vegas’ clearly shows the bands love of 70’s music be it rock, pop or even a little soul.
Cats In Space continue on their upward trajectory with this live album here to keep their fans satisfied until a new album and more live shows (they would be a perfect support for Jeff Lynne’s ELO). Only one downside is that being a support slot you only get a seven song set. ****
