4.0 out of 5 stars The One and Only Album From an Understated, but Talented Singer-Songwriter, 21 Feb. 2010

This review is from: Early Morning Blues and Greens (Audio CD)
If she's known at all, Diane Hildebrand is known as the writer (make that co-writer) of a couple of songs recorded by the Monkees. Indeed, the title track of this album, 'Early Morning Blues and Greens', was cut by the band on their third album, 'Headquarters'.

This was Hidebrand's one and only album; apart from a little later co-penning a hit single for Bobby Sherman in 1970, little has been heard from her since. Which is a shame, because 'Early Morning Blues and Greens' is a modest gem of an album. Although not a particularly distinctive or distinguished singer, the album has a simple melodic appeal, and some well-crafted songs that do lodge in the memory after a couple of plays.

It's not a strident album, but does have that kind of cool, slightly busy sound of Elektra Records folk-rock albums of the time, and there are some really emotive, slow-burning tracks, such as 'From Rea Who Died Last Summer' and 'Given Time'.

A modest, subtle and understated record that I thought was unlikely to ever be granted a CD release, I am glad that it has sneaked out - I don't reckon it'll be around for long, so I suggest you snap it up...

4.0 out of 5 stars Diane Hildebrand, 9 May 2011
This review is from: Early Morning Blues and Greens (Audio CD)
Good to have recording of an old favourite classic album. My original LP was lost years ago, and I was unable to trace a replacement until now.
