Lily & Maria biography
Formed in 1967, New York, USA - Active until 1969

Lily Fiszman was born in Germany in 1947. Her Polish born parents had escaped the Holocaust and emigrated to New York when Lily was only 2. Her interest in the performing arts brought her into contact with Greenwich Village acolyte Maria Neumann in the mid 1960s and they soon formed the duo LILY & MARIA. Their self titled and sole release was bankrolled by Columbia Records and saw the light of day in 1968. The generally sparse instrumentation is oddly sophisticated and the lyrics are not as transparent as typical of folk music of its day. The rarity of the original LP release has contributed to its cult status and a 2008 CD reissue. Lily herself eventually converted to Christianity and, with her husband Joe Isaac, has been part of a renowned Christian rock group THE ISAACS since the 1970s. Information on Maria Neumann's subsequent career or whereabouts is much harder to come by.

Review by BaldJean
Prog Reviewer

5 stars I am usually not the biggest fan of prog folk, but this album is different. it has a refreshing naiveté to it and is simply beautiful. and it is definite proof that the general belief that "In the Court of the Crimson King" was the first prog album is nothing but a myth.

it is not my habit to go into discussing the music in detail in my reviews, and I certainly won't start here. just listen and enjoy. but this album is one of my absolute favorites and deserves 5 stars, which I gladly give so more people will listen to this wonderful little gem

Thanks to kenethlevine for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
