FREDDIE SALEM & THE WILDCATS – Cat Dance [Rock Candy Remastered & Reloaded]

As requested, here’s the Rock Candy Records ‘remastered & reloaded‘ release of FREDDIE SALEM & THE WILDCATS only album ”Cat Dance” from 1982.
While Freddie Salem is most famous for replacing Henry Paul in The Outlaws in 1977 and being part of metal icons The Godz, the man is one of the most impressive American rock guitarists to have emerged in the late ’70s / early ’80s, and should have been a contender for ‘arena guitar hero’ alongside the Ted Nugent, Joe Walsh, etc.
Signed by major label Epic, in 1982 Salem got a chance to record his own album and the result is a really good mix of classic rock, melodic hard rock, and southern fried rock stadium-ready rock n’ roll. Salem rips some awesome solos, it’s a solid vocalist, and his band it top notch.
A pretty unknown album, but you’ll surprised by its quality…
