Lisa B's (Lisa Bernstein's) version of "What's New, Pussycat?" on YouTube

My version of the ever-delightful Bacharach/David song "What's New, Pussycat?" came out in 2006 on the album of the same name, subtitled "Tunes and Tales About Cool Cats." 

I recently put the tune up on You Tube with the marvelous CD cover Julie Ann Yuen created. I've neglected to post about it here, though. 

What better time to think of all things pussycat than the warming days of April? (Don't you want to go out and lie in the sun, stretching your paws?)

As the All Music Guide puts it, "Bernstein uses the word cat as a metaphor — as hipster/beatnik/bebop slang — and she is really singing about human situations… from Bernstein’s own material to an intriguing arrangement of Graham Nash’s 'Our House,' 'What's New, Pussycat?' is infectious…memorable, and clever.” 

You can read more press about the record here (scroll down): http://www.lisabmusic.com/press_quotes.html

If you'd like to own the track (and I'd be grateful for your support and the knowledge of your reliably ongoing pleasure), you can get it here: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/lisab3 (mp3s and higher-quality digital files as well as actual CDs) or here:  https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/whats-new-pussycat/id167824648?i=167824654&uo=6&at=&ct=
