One of the most remarkable unheard albums of 1969, Genesis, the sole
release by San Francisco-based sisters Wendy and Bonnie Flower, has
emerged as an acclaimed pop-psych touchstone. Brimming with melodic
confections and laced with radiant, sisterly harmonies, the set's breezy
Brazilian splashes and soft-rock strains convey a sophistication that
belies the artists' tender ages (Wendy, 17; Bonnie, 13).
Produced for reissue by WFMU's Irwin Chusid (Raymond Scott, Esquivel,
the Langley Schools Music Project) with Wendy & Bonnie's full
participation, Sundazed's deluxe edition of this lost gem, on double CD
and high-definition triple vinyl adds a wealth of early singles, newly
discovered demos, and dramatically alternate vocal takes to the original
release. A masterpiece of West Coast rock, Genesis will leave any
sunshine pop lover positively beaming.
