• sibylle baier Colour Green (LP, £12.50)

    label: Orange Twin

    Finally available on vinyl. This is a limited pressing of 500 copies. Mojo magazine raved about this album and listed it as on of the 10 forgotten singer songwriter albums still waiting to be rediscovered in a 2 page feature earlier this year. Recorded in the early 70s by a young mother of two, these chillingly beautiful works will touch any heart. "Colour Green" was recorded in Germany in the 1970-1973. In a particularly dark and moody period of her young life, Claudine, a friend of Sibylle's, dragged her out from under the bed and took her on a road trip to Strasbourg, ending up across the Alps in Genoa. Upon the return from this trip Sibylle felt her sprits renewed and she set out to write the song "Remember the Day", grateful for being alive. It was the first song she ever wrote. Her music is simply amazing in its intimacy and closeness. Recorded in the late 70's in her home on a reel to reel recording device, the songs on "Colour Green" are intimate portraits of life's sad and fragile beauty. It is a gem of an album that will blow your mind. Sibylle is a star who chose to shine for her friends and family instead of the whole world. Track Listing: 1. Tonight 2.
