Genya Ravan- Icon CD. Genya is back! This woman can sang--and she struts it out in a way that demands attention. Listen and learn, kids. This is the real deal! Always a pioneer, Genya (AKA Goldie Zelkowitz) formed Goldie & The Gingerbreads in the early Sixties, touring behind a string of European hits with the Stones, Kinks, Yardbirds and Hollies as the first all female Rock and Roll band. She is an absolute force of nature and for that she gets our Kudos. Ravan returns with a new album that’s an energizing hybrid of Seventies bar band trash rock and down ‘n’ dirty bluesy riff rock. “Don’t Go In The Bathroom” is a gritty, graphic, and all-too-accurate homage to CBGB’s and makes it worth it for that song along and she backs it up with 12 rock solid rock ‘n roll gems. These come housed in a nice looking gatefold CD jacket as well. Recommended.
