"THE CAT WALK"
The Village Soul Choir were an obscure R&B act from New York City. Their guitarist, Edward Arrington, Jr., was a one-time Motown studio musician. Not much is known about the band, other than that they recorded a classic children's album in the late 60's when they released Soul Sesame Street.
The group are a vocal quintet with a solid harmony sound, initially recasting versions of Sesame Street hits, but eventually moving into some of their own numbers on the second side of the album. Highlights include the group's own funky classic "The Cat Walk."
