Elyse by Elyse Weinberg
Released: Jan 1968
Label: Orange Twin
This overlooked gem from 1968 is most notable for Neil Young's killer guitar work on "Houses," a gutsy depiction of failed love. In fact, Weinberg has a lot in common with Young classics like Harvest and After the Gold Rush. Much of this album deals in introspective country-folk that spotlights the singer's gritty voice. But there are also touches of psychedelia, ornate pop and hard-to-describe eccentricities. Who knows -- maybe Weinberg was just a little too versatile for mainstream success.
