From Quiz Here's One I Produced Earlier
Answer: Jimi Hendrix
Hendrix learned about Cat Mother through Michael Jeffrey, who was his co-manager at the time, alongside Chas Chandler. He liked their sound, which was fairly unique at the time, and agreed to produce their debut album, from which they had a top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in USA with "Good Old Rock 'n' Roll".
This hit single which peaked at number 21, was a mash up of rock 'n' roll classics given the Cat Mother treatment and including "Sweet Little Sixteen", "Chantilly Lace" and "Blue Suede Shoes".
Cat Mother were support act for quite a few Hendrix gigs due to his involvement with the band, and this led to other gigs, including the Toronto Rock and Roll Revival in 1969, on the same bill as Chuck Berry, Alice Cooper and the Doors. They also played the New Orleans Pop Festival in the same year, when fellow acts included Jefferson Airplane, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Grateful Dead.
The band released three further albums between 1970 and 1973, all of which were self produced, before calling it a day.
