Please Pretty Baby / Just A Chance
The Boppin’ Cats were a French Rockabilly band formed in 1979. The line-up consisted of Simon Saadoun on vocals, Jean Christophe Niquet on guitar, Yannick Musy on electric bass and François Montgaillard on drums. They also had a second guitar player for a time, and Victor Callas also played drums for the band.
In 1981 they released their unique single on SAVAS (home of Jerry Dixie.) It’s an excellent single featuring two traditional sounding originals: combining the electric bass and drums gives them a sound similar to Ray Campi‘s early recordings. Saadoun wrote the A-side while Musy and Niquet penned the B-side with the help of Eric Rastout.
