Greasepaint Smile is the third studio album by Canadian folk singer-songwriter Elyse Weinberg, released in 2015 by Numerophon Records.

Back in 1968, Weinberg released her self-titled debut to much success. The album hit #31 on the Billboard album chart and she appeared on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show, in Newsweek and the L.A. Free Press, and at Shaffer Music Festival in NYC.

However, a string of bad luck led Elyse to experience only minor success in the years that followed before she drifted into seclusion and changed her name to Cori Bishop.

Greasepaint Smile is in fact Weinberg’s unreleased second album recorded and recanted in 1969, and more assured than its self-titled predecessor. Weinberg’s finger-picked acoustic is layered over distant drumming, while her gravel-pit voice evokes life, love, and mortality.

Fellow Torontonian Neil Young sears "Houses" with his signature fuzz-tone, casting chaos over the beautiful ballad, while J.D. Souther, Kenny Edwards, and Nils Lofgren, pick up the slack.

Produced by Young’s long time Crazy Horse partner David Briggs, the record is a lowdown stunner, loose and funky on songs like “City Of The Angeles” and the winking “Your Place Or Mine”, touched by the spirit on “Gospel Ship”, given to full bore blues rock on “Collection Bureau”, and achingly beautiful on “It’s All Right To Linger”. Over chiming acoustic guitars, fuzzed electrics, and a sympathetic rhythm section, Weinberg’s voice is ragged and sounds far too world weary than her 23 years should allow. Her words follow suit: “It’s all right to linger but it’s no good to stay/when you feel in your heart there’s a better way.”

Check out the tracks: “Houses”, “Greasepaint Smile”, “City Of The Angels” and “Your Place Or Mine”. 

This limited reissued LP is pressed in the USA on black vinyl.
