Cat Power @ L'Olympia

Don’t expect a show review. Sorry. The man at the door said to me “Complet !” (sold out!). Cat Power at the Olympia four months after her performance at the Bataclan where she celebrated her birthday and the release of her last record, Jukebox, I thought I could wait the last days to purchase a ticket… Wrong.
I forget one important fact, Cat Power is now a very well-known artist and very popular, thanks to her talent and to the patience and help from her label,
Matador. Therefore, a show of Cat Power is not anymore reserved for the long die-hard Indy fans, those who discovered and supported her during her first CDs and shows. Her music reaches now the bourgeois boheme from every big city, those who will fill the Olympia tonight.
There was a Cat Power and now there is a different Cat Power (isn’t it, Lyle?). Jukebox has nothing to be compared to with What Would The Community Think or Myra Lee. The record is ok, specially the bonus cd, very well produce, her voice is still amazing, but it’s far to be her best work. I listened to it at the beginning and quickly listened to someone else.
Leaky Sparrow started more than two years ago. Cat Power was the first post - because it matter to me - but this evening I will not go to her show at the Olympia because I didn’t really wish to see her playing those cover songs again with those too good and unexciting musicians. Time fades away?

Thank you for learning Cat Power through Leaky Sparrow. I still have to listen to her early records; the only one I know is Jukebox.

Anyway, how you think about these covers, Cat Power has a tremendous energy. I Belive In You is Dylan on steroids!
