The Jive Cats – My Lovin’ Baby

MAC 107 [1977]
My Lovin’ Baby / Big Guy

I don’t know much about this Dutch band.The Jive Cats were two girls who sung in harmony. Both songs are penned by Norbert Balicki, aka Burt Allis. Maybe he also played some instruments on it, but I couldn’t find more info.
Anyway, this single is genuinely unique. It’s female Rockabilly at its finest. It’s short (the total time of both sides doesn’t exceed 2’20”) and goes straight to the point, though they never rush, and they manage to have two hot guitar solos on each side. The sound is raw and mainly acoustic, with just a light electric guitar.
