"At last this great album has been reissued on CD. It was produced by Thom Bell, who was known for his works with the Stylistics, Delfonics, Spinners and would later do some sessions with Elton John. He also wrote quite a few good songs with his partner Linda Creed. Bell had improved a lot as a producer and, by the time he did "Track of The Cat", he was in top form. This is more his album than Dionne's, but her voice certainly makes the most of his music. "Once You Hit The Road" was a hit, but the other songs are just as good. The title track is a six-minute opus that opens the album in grand style. "Track of The Cat" (the album as a whole) is in a similar vein to The Spinners' "Pick of The Litter" and, of course, Elton John's "The Thom Bell Sessions". Good remastering, too - the sound quality is amazing! This was probably Dionne's finest hour in the seventies."
Dionne puts the 'cat' in 'track'

"Normally I would get sick of listening to Dionne's voice over-and-over due to her resinence on her Bacharach/David songs are exactly the same, and the songs are just too much alike one another. However, with this album... you get to see what Dionne can really do!
I think the title track, 'His House and Me' and 'Once You Hit The Road' are by far the best tracks on the album. What urks me is that how this album has gotten just bad and absolutely terrible reviews upon its release and over the past 20 year since its debut. It really and truely does amaze me how a gem like this could go overlooked. But many times when artists try something new, the general and immediate public don't go for it when such a small but risque venture is carried out and followed through upon.
Please... go out and buy this CD. I promise you, you will not be disappointed."

"First i want to thank David Nathan for reissueing this GEM!!! All of Dionne's 70's lp's are OVERLOOKED pieces of Great Music!!!
Thom Bell one of the best producers, songwriters ever produced this lp on Dionne, this lp i think is her smoothest vocally, great songs, just a wonderful cd!!"
