The Daughters of Eve Collection

"Don't waste my time..."



Up my audiophilic sleeve this update, I am proud to pull out the whole catalogue of, perhaps, one of the most definitive all female bands from the sixties - the beautifully talented Daughters of Eve! This band, hailing from the windy city, had a career that spanned from 1965 to '68. In those 3 years the band release four singles, and members included Marsha Tomal (Organ/Rhythm Guitar/Vocals), Debi Pomeroy (Drums), Judy Johnson (Lead Guitar/Vocals), Andee Levin, Marilou Davion and Lori Wax (all on bass). The full story of these girls can be found on the ever-wonderful institution that is Spectropop - check it out sharpish if you havnae all ready!

The two strongest songs (Don't Waste My Time and Help Me Boy) have allready been compiled on Girls With Guitars and Girls in the Garage, however the original compositions Symphony of My Soul and Social Tragedy are still damn good! Also included in the package are covers of Hey Lover, Stand By Me, He Cried and A Thousand Stars. As an added bonus there's a radio spot promoting a gig! Lovely!

Enjoy!

Another great post about a worthy group from Cinnamonk! Thanks for shining the light.

You know, I'm going to be making videos about neglected Rock women the rest of my life at this rate, and I blame you (ba-dump-bump)!

Let's see: The Brazen Hussies, Honey Ltd...

Re: Tym

Well, I hope to keep striving - got some mindblowing stuff on one band in particular, who I consider to be the greatest girl band in the history of existence - which I hope to post one day!

Thanks for posting an article about my first band from the sixties, THE DAUGHTERS OF EVE.
It is nice to be thought of in such a nice way after so many years.
BY the way, I am still playing.
Sincerely,
Debi Pomeroy/drummer

Hi Debi - Absolutely fantastic to hear from you! - I have loved The Daughters of Eve since Help Me Boy was issued on the Girls With Guitars compilation - and then reading the interview with yourself on Spectropop - truely awe-inspiring stuff! The group really deserved much more of a chance than you got! Chicago seems to have been quite popular place for female bands, as I know of at least two more - The Marie Antoinettes and The Chips - but The Daughters of Eve seem to be the most proflific and talented of them! Great to hear your still performing - love to be able to hear any new recordings if they exist. Again thanks for getting in touch - made my day! ^__^

I reuploaded the songs and left the link in the comments of the "Same" topic.

For Cinnamonk : I just tried to fill peoples requests, hope you're not against that ;)

Excellent - many thanks - been looking for "Social Tragedy" for ages. Has anyone else noticed that the 1972 Ral Donner version of "Social Tragedy" (renamed "Don't Let It Slip Away") sounds as though it was overdubbed on the Daughters of Eve backing track with some additional horns. Either that or the musicians on the Ral Donner recording were able to recreate the sound exactly!

GOOD TO SEE THE DAUGHTERS OF EVE ARE STILL IN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF LISTENERS AND INTERNET BLOGGERS.. CARL BONAFEDE, WHO WAS THEIR MANAGER, IS A VERY GOOD FRIEND AND HE WAS VERY IMPRESSED AND IS STILL EXTREMELY PROUD OF THE DAUGHTERS OF EVE
