    Great 4-way cat fight; hard to know whom to choose. It’s easy to see R&B is your favorite type of music. How about some other types too; chart, doowop, rockabilly, even novelty? Not to worry though; we’ll always keep listening around here.

    Hey Matt I enjoyed all four versions. I truly dug the Louis Jordan version the most. Keep up the good work.

    Great cat fight! The Basie version was also a top ten on Billboard’s pop charts. There were also a few cover versions–one by the Pied Pipers, which fared well on the pop charts.

    Hello fellow prowlers. I have some hopeful (and potentially great) news about efforts on behalf of our furry leader. They are too long and detailed to describe fully here, but if you would contact me, I will respond to each of you individually with a full explanation. You may reach me at:

    Thank you.

    Great Cat Fight!…as always. I went with Jack because I could really tap my foot to the music. If I tap my foot or slap the table I think it is good.
