Forbert’s debut album, ‘Alive On Arrival’, became one of 1978's most acclaimed records. Rolling Stone contributing editor David Wild recently reflected that “now or then, you would be hard-pressed to find a debut effort that was simultaneously as fresh and accomplished,” comparing it to “a great first novel by a young author who somehow managed to split the difference between Mark Twain and J.D.Salinger.”
They said it couldn’t be done. Four different songwritersjoining forces to form a single band? There was simply no precedent (outside ofCSNY, The Beatles, The Traveling Wilburys, The Highwaymen, Monsters of Folk,etc). And yet Fantastic Cat did it anyway, defying the odds and teaming up torecord their highly unanticipated debut, The Very Best Of Fantastic Cat.Captured in the wilds of the Pocono Mountains, the album gleefully careensbetween genres and decades, mixing electrified 60’s folk and 70’s AM radio goldas it balances careful craftsmanship and ecstatic abandon in equal measure.
