The Nuge, inside cover of Cat Scratch Fever with Derek St. Holmes

Cat Scratch Fever (1977) is the third studio album by American guitarist Ted Nugent and his band, as well as the name of the album's title song. Vocalist Derek St. Holmes, who had left the band during the recording of the album Free-for-All, had come back for touring in 1976 and was again the lead singer on this album.  Side one is fantastic!  All of the songs were written by Ted Nugent and arranged by the band, except "Live it Up", written by Nugent and Derek St. Holmes.  DSH is one of my all-time favorite rock singers.  In fact - he's in my fantasy All Seventies Band lineup.

If you are reading here - see:

  1. "Cat Scratch Fever" – 3:41
  2. "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" – 3:17
  3. "Death by Misadventure" – 3:31
  4. "Live It Up" – 4:02
  5. "Home Bound" (instrumental) – 4:43

  1. These guys can jam, but I don't understand why Nuge is so ultra-conservative. Seems he votes the way he does solely because he thinks someone's gonna take his guns away! No one is gonna take your guns away, man, so get out of your paranoia shell!
