Ted Nugent's third and best-selling album for Epic cemented his position as a hard-rock icon. With this 1977 album the Motor City Madman loudly proclaimed that he would leave his loin-clothed, alpha-male stamp on the mangy hide of rock music. Songs such as the anthemic title track and "Sweet Sally" brought a melodic sensibility to hard rock that would later inform the music of Cheap Trick. The instrumental "Home Bound" expands on the soaring guitar line of Steve Miller's "Swingtown," and "Workin' Hard, Playin' Hard" stands as a testament to the rock & roll lifestyle rivaled only by Kiss's "Rock and Roll All Nite." This remastered reissue includes bonus live versions of "Cat Scratch Fever" and "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" that testify to the sexually charged excitement of Nugent's fierce live show. --Michael Wells

Ted Nugent achieved his long sought solo superstar status in 1977 on the release of his third album 'Cat Scratch Fever'. This record was a watershed moment for both Ted and 70's hard rock, but in some ways it signaled the beginning of Nugent's decline. His band would soon split, the band that created the triumverate of classic rock discs which included 'Fever'. The power struggle for unquestioned dominance of the band that bore his name was completed but at what cost? Ted would never again reach the heights of his mid to late 70's glory again. However in the mean time the current album included everything a Nugent fan wanted to hear. Balls out hard rock from a tight and powerful rock band? Check! "Sweet Sally", "Workin' Hard", Live it Up" and "Thousand Knives" fit the bill. Outrageous sexual inneundo? "Wang Dang Sweet Poontag", does that work for you! The return of a seriously good hard rock vocalist who perfectly complemented Ted's tirades? Derek St. Holmes was on hand for the entire recording after his conspicuous absence for much of 'Free-for-All' and for a very brief time the stars were in alignment. A monster hit single which became an undisputed anthem for this era? The title track of course which was all Ted would ever need to say again. Personal favorite besides "Fever" would be "Out of Control", the riff hits you like a sledgehammer and is probably the heaviest cut on the record. Buy Ted's first three and you have pretty much all you need from this icon of hard rock who let it slip away when he couldn't find replacement conspirators with the same magic after his original band took a walk.

Cat Scratch Fever is a fantastic album and along with his self-titled debut are Ted Nugent's best solo albums. Although he was better known for his live shows, wicked guitar playing, and wildman image, Ted wrote some of the best hard rock songs of the late 70's and several of them are featured here.

The best known track here is the title track which is not only his most well known song but also contains one of the most recognizable riffs in rock. Tracks like "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" and "Workin' Hard, Playin' Hard" are among his best and continue to be part of his live show. Like his self-titled debut, Derek St. Holmes sings many of the vocals here and his efforts on the underrated tracks "A Thousand Knives", "Live It Up", and "Fist Fightin' Son Of A Gun" are all outstanding. Ted's guitar work continues to be killer, particularly on "Death By Misadventure" and the instrumental "Homebound." The remaining studio tracks "Sweet Sally" and "Out Of Control" are also very good. There's not a bad monent to be found on this album. Highly recommended.

I'm from Brazil, and when visiting US in 1978 I saw Ted Nugent for the first time in Oakland, California, in the "Day On The Green" festival. I didn't know much about him by that time. Blue Oyster Cult, Cheap Trick, Journey and AC/DC played before Ted. They were ok, but when Ted Nugent started playing I said "WOW! This is rock'n'roll!" From that moment on I started buying his records. In my opinion Cat Scratch Fever is his best record. The album is real good, from the first to the last song. There you have high energy and the finest hard rock. The recording production is still very good in spite of being recorded almost 30 years ago (The drums could be a little louder and heavier, like John Bonham's, but it's ok). Well, all I got to say is that this cd has brought good feelings back to my mind, after all these years. Basically, that's why I rate it 5 stars.

I was @ a record shop when I heard the "Cat Scratch Fever" album demonstrated a couple of times. I liked what I was hearing, so I thought "oh what the hell", I decided to buy THIS record. And plus, it was my 22nd birthday on August 20, 1977, so I thought I would treat myself. I have often gone to record shops & if I liked whatever THEY were playing, I would buy the record SOMETIMES, on the spot. In May of 2010, I bought this album in CD format, which incl., two Bonus tracks. I'm going to rate this album as follows:

1. "Cat Scratch Fever"...I like this song quite well...it's pretty good.

2. "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang"...This has a FASTEST beat on this entire album. It's a pretty decent song.

3. "Death By Misadventure"...If I remember right, this song tells about Brian Jones drowning in the summer of 1969. He had been a member of the Rolling Stones, before he died. I like THIS song quite well...the guitar work is real good.

4. "Live It Up"...This is probably the one of the BEST songs on this album. Great EVERYTHING about this Happy Go Lucky song. I just LOVE this & it's my TOP favorite that TIES w/ "Workin' Hard, Playin' Hard".

5. "Home Bound"...This is a STRONG instrumental, which is pretty damn good.

6. "Workin' Hard, Playin" Hard"...The meaning to this song is rather similar to "Live It Up". This is another Happy Go Lucky song. I LOVE this tune very much & it TIES w/ "Live It Up" as my TOP favorite song.

7. "Sweet Sally"...The shortest song on this album. This song is okay!

8. "A Thousand Knives"...This song is my 2nd TOP favorite on this album. This is as excellent... as EXCELLENT can get. One hell of a Dynamite song.

9. "Fist Fightin' Son Of A Gun"...I rate this song as only okay!
