ANNIVERSARY of the Revolutionary “BEETHOVEN ON SPEED” ALBUM FROM THE GREAT KAT!
Released on Sept. 18, 1990

NEW YORK TIMES’ feature on The Great Kat & “Beethoven On Speed”:
“The wave of the future might well be heavy-metal Beethoven by way of Juilliard. Ms. Kat's ‘Beethoven on Speed’ album elevates furiousness to a would-be world view. It is built on speed-rock electric guitar solos (fast, virtuosic, nearly everything articulated with frenzied right-hand strumming and manic left-hand skittering up and down the fret board, the general esthetic being more-notes-per-second equals better). To which she adds hoarse imprecations for her ‘slaves’ to grovel before her and her overpowering genius.” – John Rockwell, The New York Times

On Sept. 18, 1990, “BEETHOVEN ON SPEED” Album, produced by The Great Kat, Monte Conner and Jon Mathias, was released on Roadrunner Records.
