Henry Stone's cult Cat label did some serious work carrying funk, soul and more from it's homebase in Miami throughout the 70s. There were bigger artists like Gwen McRae on the label, but also plenty of space for some short lived and distinctly DIY outfits like James Knight & The Butlers. Their run was right around the start of Cat in 1971, yielding an album and a clutch of singles, the last of which came out in 1972. 'Save Me' is more than deserving of a new pressing - it's an instantly addictive, psych-soaked joyful noise, recorded with an in-the-room rawness that only adds to the deft songwriting and accomplished players, making for an overdriven and utterly uplifting gem. Don't overlook the sly trippiness of instrumental track 'El Chicken' too with it's smart reverse guitar effects in the breakdown.
