paint a lady
The above photo is the cover of Finders Keepers Records' upcoming Bearded Ladies compilation, which features "15 homegrown selections of forlorn and freakish female songsmithery from the past four decades." The comp will feature the lost work of a number unknown female geniuses, including Susan Christie, whose 1970 masterpiece Paint a Lady is one of our favorite finds of the last couple years (Finders Keepers reissued the rare album in 2006). Stones Throw said about Paint a Lady:
"Brings me back to the early days of my youth, sitting around the living room with my dad, listening to dusty folk LPs while he smoked a joint or three. Except this shit sounds like Madlib produced it."
No word on whether this particular Christie track will appear on the comp, but it's a good representation of how mindblowing and ahead-of-its-time Paint a Lady really was:
