Listen: Walking My Cat Named Dog / Norma Tanega
Hats off to Herb Bernstein, the guy who produced this record. Listen to the production ideas he weaves in and out of this 2:16 perfect pop, very early stereo 7″ single. No small credit toward the writer/artist as well, Norma Tanega.
She was luckily pretty respected in the day, and managed to have a deserved US and UK hit, coincidentally reaching #22 in both charts during ’66. Various follow ups didn’t get traction as they should have, but ‘Walking My Cat Named Dog’ was pretty difficult to top.
The album, a hard one to find, is worth the search. I play it often.
