Susan Christie.....(Philadelphia 1966-69)

Tapewrecks dives to the psychedelic abyss for these treasures by Philadelphia's Susan Christie. She had a hit in 1966 with I Love Onions, then recorded a series a single destined for a a 1970 LP that never came to be, except for a total of 3 test pressings. Mix together some Kendra Smith with string arrangements worthy of an Ennio Morricone score. Add some Patti Smith free verse, a few Petula Clark-ey pop songs, and some of Grace Slick's pills, and you might have Paint A Lady, the album finally released by Finders Keepers in 2006.
