Elyse Weinberg's "lost" second album finally issued by Numero Group

Check out "Houses" (featuring Neil Young on guitar) from Elyse's unreleased Greasepaint Smile album.

Greasepaint Smile is the unreleased second album by Chatham-born Elyse Weinberg, who became an original lady from the canyon after leaving her Toronto home base. Recorded and recanted in 1969, Greasepaint Smile is more assured than its self-titled, Tetragrammaton-issued predecessor. Weinberg’s finger-picked acoustic is layered over distant drumming, while her gravel-pit voice evokes life, love, and mortality.

Fellow Torontonian Neil Young sears "Houses" with his signature fuzz-tone, casting chaos over the beautiful ballad, while J.D. Souther, Kenny Edwards, and Nils Lofgren pick up the slack. Masterfully produced by David Briggs, Greasepaint Smile has climbed out of the canyon and is bound for every turntable east of the 405. You can grab a CD, LP or MP3 version of the album right here.
