Thanks for the understanding most of you have had for the loss of my partner. The situation was unexpected and has not been easy, but I am better. I have been very busy since, with the aftermath and work, so I really haven't had the time or desire to post here. But I do check occasionally and will try to update requested links when I get a chance. No idea when or if I'll get to new posts, but you never know. He did support this blog, so maybe I'll get back to it. Thanks for your patience.

If you wish to download an album off of this blog and the link is dead, please request it either in the comments or the Chat Box and I will reupload it as soon as possible. :)

And don't forget to follow the Isle on Facebook and Twitter!

NightCat - NightCat (1991)

Last month I posted the maxi-single of the track "#1 House Rule" by NightCat on my sister blog Lost Pop Treasures. Until I did research on the song, I thought it was just another one-off pop-house track by some unknown pop tart. Well, while she may have remained relatively unknown, I discovered that NightCat had a very interesting story indeed. And that she had an album that I needed ASAP! Well thanks to blog fan Sarah, I now have it! And so do you! And it is better than I'd hoped, as I was mislead to believe that it was a rock album (partly due to the cover), but it's pure up dance pop, with traces of house and freestyle, a la artists like Pajama Party and Isle postee Jaya, who was on the same label as NightCat, Lefrak-Moelis. Anyway, since I don't have a lot of time to compose a proper new entry for this, I'm going to reprint some of my write up from Lost Pop Treasures:

"You just never know what you're going to find out about these artists! I thought this was just a random one off single by some pop tart, but instead Nightcat was a creation of Marvel Comics! Marvel creator Stan Lee wanted to develop a female superhero who crossed over into the real world. Like Dazzler, this hero was also a rock singer. So they released an issue of the Nightcat comic book and hired actress/singer Jacqueline Tavarez to embody Nightcat in real life. They recorded an entire album simply titled Nightcat. "#1 House Rule" was the only single. Both the comic and album bombed and Jacqueline was fired, she claims because she appeared in a music video by Long Island Lolita Amy Fisher's ex-lover Joey Buttafuoco!! She has since appeared nude in the film Tromeo And Juliet and that's about it. (UPDATE: Apparently she now goes by the name Jacqueline Love and poses on Naked. com. Thanks to DJAaron for this info!) For more on the Nightcat story, go HERE. I would have died for this had I known it existed back in the day, as I was both a music and comic book fiend!"

And I am dying for it now! I know you'll all love this album, so download it and give thanks to Sarah for sharing it. You've made my day! :)
