I notice "Inspired By" - codeword for Disney not granting use of original music... but of course that opens an easy contribution, you know, probably anything French will do.

For some reason "Pussy Galore" comes to mind, that's a 1997 Pussyfoot compliation with Toshi Nakanishi involvement - "James Bond" inspired yet royalty free as it's all merely "inspired by"

Sounds like a good point. However Disney is supporting the release (it's the big headline on their site), and it contains at least a few covers from the Aristocats ("minna neko ni naritai no sa", "oshare Cat"). Maybe the Aristocats don't have enough of a repertoire to make up for a full album?

Listening to it now. Very little Aristocats, mostly your typical lineup of Gainsbourg/Polnareff/etc. covers. I had the Aristocats album as a kid so there are plenty covers out there to do.

Too bad. I don't know Aristocats too well myself. You're right that it isn't too Aristocats-themed though!
Nevertheless some good lounge...!
