John Wilson (lead, 1961-1968)Cornelius Brown (bass 1961-1968)Elaine Lewis, widow of Silhouette Rick Lewis was an integral part of the group's revival in the 1980s and who is now releasing a brand new CD compilation of the groups music.
Elaine was born in Philadelphia, PA. and as a child picked up the guitar right away, parents bought her a uke when she was around 10. She says: "Thanks to Elvis Presley being all the rage. I figured out chords on my own, I later found out that what I was playing were real chords--C, Em, G and so on. Later was given a really cheap guitar with a chord book and learned all the chords from that and I played by ear and played along with the radio and records..."
Elaine Lewis 1964
The CD took a year to complete, and Elaine had material on every kind of medium--records, reel-to-reel tapes, MP3's, cassette tapes, CD's, even her phone's voice mail had material.
The CD is very creative, a fabulous tribute to the group and a wonderful collectors item.
We are honored to have her with us on Sunday, November 6, 2001 at 3PM Pacific /5PM Central/6PM Eastern.
