Let It Bleed, Genevieve

Genevieve Waite
Romance Is On The Rise (1974):

Love Is Coming Back
Transient Friends
Times of Love
Trashy Rumors
Slumming on Park Avenue
Biting My Nails
White Cadillac
American Man
On The Moon

this is what it says on the back of the record:
"Genevieve Waite, and underground star on the Paris, London, Los Angeles & New York circuit has travelled with the speed of light since leaving her native South Africa at eighteen. She played the title role in the movie "Joanna" and since then has turned down movies to have fun with friends like John Phillips, Mick Jagger and Andy Warhol. At last this elusive star has been in one place long enough to record an album of her "unfamilliar sounds" and as everyone always suspected, its incredible. Genevieve and John collaborated on most of the songs and the result as you will hear is a happy one for music lovers everwhere. So here she is: "As hard to capture as a new thought the jiving, thriving, Miss Genevieve Waite." LET THE 70'S BEGIN..."

Thank you for sharing this - I admit I want to listen to it just because of the cover, but that's as good a reason as any.

I downloaded it from iTunes. It is an excellent record. We play it around the house all the time.

If you haven't seen 1968's "Joanna" starring Waite, rent it, post haste. Incredibly, it often pops up on the Fox Movie Channel, so you might catch it there.

I cannot believe you have posted this album. I've look for a CD of it for years, as my vinyl copy went missing decades back. Thank you very much.

Also, I did not know that Lydia Tomkiw had died. I used to live in Chicago and saw Algebra Suicide many times. I'll try to find information on her passing.

Any chance of a repost of this album? The links don't seem to work properly. Any assistance would be most appreciated.
