The Return of Red Emma is the third studio album by the singer/songwriter Lida Husik, released in 1993 by Shimmy Disc.[4][5]

Critical reception[edit]

Trouser Press wrote that "the swirling moods seem less to spring mysteriously from the songs themselves — as they do on Bozo — than to be draped over them. It sounds oddly unsettled and tired at the same time."[4]
