Harry Nilsson & John Lennon’s Hidden “DRUGS” Message On “Pussy Cats” Album Cover

Released in 1974, “Pussy Cats” is the tenth album by Harry Nilsson. It was produced by John Lennon during his infamous 18-month “Lost Weekend” period in Los Angeles, during which time a bunch of weird stuff happened.

The album title was inspired by the bad press Nilsson and Lennon were getting at the time for being drunk and rowdy in Los Angeles.  The album cover even had a hidden “inside joke” message on the album cover. Do you see the hidden message under the table???

The children’s letter blocks “D” and “S” on either side of a RUG under the table. See it now??? It cleverly spells out the word DRUGS in code, of which they were notoriously indulging in at the time.

After the first night of recording March 28, 1974, Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder popped into the studio unexpectedly. Bootleg recordings from this jam session, notable for being the last time Lennon & McCartney played music together, were later released as an almost unlistenable album titled A Toot and a Snore in ’74.  

The next day on March 29, 1974, the McCartney’s stopped by the rented Santa Monica home of John Lennon where Lennon’s girlfriend at the time May Pang took the last photo of John & Paul together.  Click on photo or link for the scoop on the famous last photo.
