Tomcattin' is the fourth studio album of Southern rock band Blackfoot, released in 1980. The album found Blackfoot continuing its roll down the rock highway, spawning crowd-pleasers like raucous "Gimme Gimme Gimme," and the rowdy (and randy) "Fox Chase" the latter of which features granddad Shorty Medlocke. While the album did not spawn any hit singles, it was enough to keep the band's devoted fan base loyal and strong, it remains a popular staple in Blackfoot's catalogue.[2]
