GUEST,Robert Origins: Senor Don Gato (293* d) RE: Origins: Senor Don Gato 07 Feb 04

Like so many others over the years, I just stumbled across this thread while hunting for information about "Don Gato," a song I've never forgotten since hearing it in Mrs. Griffin's third-grade music class in 1974.

I liked the song so much I brought a tape to school and had Mrs. Griffin make a copy of the record for me. And I recently found that I still had the tape, and I was still able to play it after 30 years. There are other recordings of the song now available, but for me this will always be the definitive one. I wish I knew what record it was.

If anybody is interested in hearing my vintage 1974 recording of the old record, I could put up an MP3 of it (though it is pretty bad quality).
