We'll admit to having picked this one up for the dated '60s cover (courtesy of artist Jonanna Laine). The drawing of three mod '60s chicks
left us hoping this might be something along the lines of The Feminine Complex.

My name is Chelsea Lee (formerly Eleanor
and the Cake was my girl group - I was the blonde.
I am actually quite humbled to type my name into my
PC and read about myself almost 40 years later!!!
We formed in NYC in 1966 and wrote our own material,
initially Baroque style with intense harmonies, and didn't
really intend to become Greene and Stone's 'Wall Of Sound',
although I did not mind being like the Ronettes as I idolized
anything Phil Spector did, and we even had Cher singing backups
on that first album. We would sing all our own songs to anyone
who would listen. Harold Battiste told us that we sent him back
to school with our original music.
Goldstar Recording Studios was just a fabulous place in
those days. I met Walter Winchell there, who told me I was
"...a diamond in the rough!" I chose some of Mac Rebenack's
songs that he played for us on piano. All those songs were so
innocent, and as I get older are so relevant to my life now.
Jeanette Jacobs (who died January 1st 1982) and I both were on
tour with Mac Rebenack's group, Dr. John and the Night Trippers!
After that stint, both of us sang with Ginger Baker's Airforce.
We toured all over England and later (without Jeanette) Europe.
Anyone interested to know more of what went on then is quite
welcome to email me offlist. Thank you for the compliments,
I am chuffed! I think we were way ahead of our time back in 67'.
