Was für England die Beatles waren, waren die Cats für die Niederlande. Die 1963 gegründete Gruppe machte den holländischen Rock auch international populär. 1971 gelang Piet Veerman, Cees Veerman, Arnold Mühren, Jaap Schilder und Theo Klouwer mit dem Hit "One Way Wind" der Durchbruch in Deutschland. Danach ging es Schlag auf Schlag: "Let's Dance" brachte die Cats 1972 erneut in die Charts. Auch in England und in Amerika eroberten sie die Hitlisten. 1973 versuchten sie, in den USA festen Fuß zu fassen. Sie verließen die Niederlande und produzierten ihre neue LP 'Love In Your Eyes', die u.a. den Hit "Be My Day" enthält, an Ort und Stelle in den Staaten. Es blieb die einzige Eskapade der Cats. Unzufrieden mit Verlauf und Ergebnis dieser Produktion kehrten sie in ihre Heimat zurück, wo ihre Popularität noch lange anhielt.

Die Musiker von Cats überließen nie etwas dem Zufall. Nur renommierte Studiomusiker wie z.B. von den Crusaders oder von Steely Dan wurden für ihre LPs engagiert. Ihre musikalische Vorliebe galt den sanften Tönen, den weichschwingenden melodiösen Linien und dem harmonischen Gruppengesang. "One Way Wind" vereinigt diese Elemente in nahezu perfekter Weise. Nicht ohne Grund wurde gerade dieser Song quasi zur "Visitenkarte" der Cats: der Name der Gruppe und der Gedanke an schwebende träumerische Melodien sind beinahe untrennbar miteinander verbunden.

(aus dem Sampleralbum 'Memories In Gold')
