Product Description:

Personnel: Austin Powell (vocals, guitar); Jimmy Henderson (guitar); Ernie Price (tiple).
Following almost directly in the wake of the Spirits of Rhythm, that combination string band and harmony vocal group from the early 1930s, the Cats and the Fiddle updated the formula to fit the hepcat jive and swing of the late '30s and early '40s. This band has been variously ignored, misidentified, and misunderstood for many years. "We Cats Will Swing for You," a series named after the band's signature hit, aims to rectify that. Volume One contains everything they recorded during 1939, despite an erroneous reference on the album cover to the following year. In addition to a half-dozen of Powell's novelty jive routines, this segment of the story includes the wistful "Chant of the Rain," Tampa Red's groovy "Mr. Rhythm Man," and the old blues standard "I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water," which might be the best little record the Cats ever managed to make.
