Elyse Weinberg 2001

October 10, 2011

Artist: Elyse Weinberg (born Cori Bishop)
Release: Elyse
Year: 2001 (Re-Release)
Genre: psych folk rock
Born: Chatham Ontario Canada
Website here.
Buy the Album here.

Track Listing:
1. Last Ditch Protocol
2. Deed I Do
3. Iron Works
4. Spirit of the Letter
5. Here in My Heart
6. Band of Thieves
7. Sweet Pounding Rhythm
8. Meet Me at the Station
9. Simpleminded Harlequin
10. Painted Raven
11. Mortuary Bound
12. If Death Don’t Overtake Me
13. House (Featuring Neil Young)
14. What You Call It

Notes: This is a reissue of this 1968 psychedelic classic.
“Elyse” actually received much critical acclaim, and while not a commercial hit, the record sold fairly well, even prompting an appearance on Johnny Carson’s “Tonight Show”. Two more albums were recorded but never released. Included on this CD reissue are two songs from this era, one of which, “Houses”, features Neil Young wielding his distinctively ripping guitar sound.

Elyse got her start performing in Toronto alongside friends like Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. She later moved to LA where she recorded “Elyse”, and has since lived in London, New Mexico, and Ashland, Oregon where she currently lives.  She still writes and plans to record an album of new material in the near future.  Since, Elyse’s story has become something of a rock legend – after the rerelease her album received massive amount of positive feedback in the press, and she was mentioned in Magnet, Time Out NY, Aquarium Drunkard, Creative Loafing (amongst others). Perhaps the most flattering result was two extremely successful indie bands, Vetiver and Dinosaur Jr. decided to cover “Houses” in the aftermath of the re-release.

Notes: Cher recorded the song “Band of Thieves” without giving credit to Elyse. She remembers going to the movies with her friends to see Cher’s movie and to hear Cher’s version of her song “Band of Thieves”. When the credits came on it said all music by Sonny Bono, She was shocked.
