    As an outtakes album, SHADOW CAT stands a cut above the average assembly of studio leftovers. That's not surprising coming from Robyn Hitchcock, however, whose sizable and variegated body of work is remarkably consistent. Hitchcock is joined here by guitarist Morris Tepper (formerly of Captain Beefheart's Magic Band) and Terry Edwards on organ, but this is a mostly acoustic set that finds Robyn front and center.
    With the exception of the dark, moody cover of Hendrix's "The Wind Cries Mary," SHADOW CAT contains all Hitchcock originals. "For Debbie Reynolds" and "The Cat Walks Her Kind of Line" are among the many highlights in this batch of quirky, atmospheric, low-key folk-pop. Those who know the singer-songwriter from the film STOREFRONT HITCHCOCK will find much to recognize and appreciate on this intimate acoustic set.
