I had a different reaction.  My thought was that this was consistent with his older work.  It could easily have been included on his older albums.

Good to hear new (old) Cat again.  Not sure how many tracks from this new album were conceived back in the 60s...still I like it.

I will say for a brief moment I had a "is BillG really playing Kenny Rogers 'The Gambler'?" - Cat's voice as aged fairly well :-)

About half of the tracks on this album were recorded and released early in Cat's career, including this one, which is much different in it's original version, give it a listen on his New Masters album from 1967!

 
Great suggestion, BoFiS - I've only recently started to dig into the (old, as in when he was young) Cat work and will for sure check it out.

Long Live RP!!

Rather boring song, if you ask me!

Song is growing on me. It's a humanitarian, caring expression.

This reminds somewhat of his pre-conversion material but the production is not as good.  Darker, but the song title says that clearly.
No score from me just yet.  Need another listen or 2.

After a few listens, I might demote the Cat, whom I have always admired. But that's a fine tune here. 

 
What he said. I like this song more on each play. That's a thoughtful piece of work right there.

Saw Cat play this live this week- a fabulous show. He described this as a song he wrote in 1967 as a protest song about the plight of refugees. Very relevant 50 years later.

I just started listening to this album yesterday. Not sure what I think yet. Thanks for playing him!
