A one-line review of this, Genevieve Waite’s 1974 album, ‘Romance Is On The Rise’, in a magazine reeled me in and I was on a mission to find it and own it and be it’s biggest fan. I was successful in every aspect of this mission, and not nearly enough people know about this great slice of pop music. Genevieve Waite was the second wife of John Philips, a Papa (as in, Mamas And The). I’m not a huge fan of theirs but this sole release from his missus is simply divine. Think Olive Oyl meets Betty Boop with a dash of Little Nell. It’s kitsch, camp and comes in a sleeve so deliciously 1940s-pin-up, it’s worth the admission fee alone. A long lost vinyl obscurity for too long, ‘Romance Is On The Rise’ was re-issued on CD by Chrome Dreams in August 2004, with 4 bonus tracks. Please, buy yourself a copy of this album!
