A tribute to Venus Carmichael from two of her adoring fans.
Sightings of Venus Carmichael, Scottish contemporary of Joni Mitchell
and Carole King, have been scarce in the last fifteen years. Recently
a blog has surfaced, venuscarmichael.blogspot.com, which suggests she
might be ready to tell all. At "Venus Rising" you can hear about a
dark past, told in her own words and music.
