Pussy Cats is the tenth album by American singer Harry Nilsson, released in 1974. It was produced by John Lennon during his "Lost Weekend" period. The album title was inspired by the bad press Nilsson and Lennon were getting at the time for being drunk and rowdy in Los Angeles. They also included an inside joke on the cover – children's letter blocks "D" and "S" on either side of a rug under a table − to spell out "drugs under the table" in code.
These are the sessions that make up Pussy Cats, an utterly bewildering record that's more baffling than entertaining. Like many superstar projects of its time, this is studded with contributions from friends and studio musicians, all intent on having a good time in the studio - which usually means hammering out rock & roll oldies.

Although Harry Nilsson was not directly involved in the incident, those sitting closest to the Beatle's table state that it was Nilsson who egged Lennon on, demanding that he get ever more outrageous," reads a report in the June 1974 Circus. Pussy Cats was a divisive record, and it isn't hard to hear why. Not only is Nilsson's voice obviously in rough shape, but the music is loose. The whole record sounds a little unsteady, like the songs are barely being held together and the entire thing could collapse at any moment.
