Product Description

Repressed finally and nicely ties in with the latest Mojo mag which has this listed as on of the 10 forgotten singer songwriter albums still waiting to be rediscovered 2 page feature.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.

Format: Audio CD
Sibylle Baier was primarily an actress, born in Germany, and these songs-she was living in the States by then-are the result of the inspiration she drew from a certain road trip with a friend, which led her to write and sing this low-fi and quite private set of recordings between 1970 and 1973.
The first thing that might strike about these songs is the consistent sadness of their melodies, akin to the mood she had been in at the time, and the hushed yet expressive phrasing of these lyrics.
More than anybody else, this album may remind you of Vashti Bunyan, particularly her debut "A Diamond Day." Although the Bunyan's songs were less imbued of somberness, they share a certain melancholy with these tunes. Also, you may think of what Sylvia Plath might have sound like if she chose to sing rather than poetry, more through its mood than the nature of its words.
Still, the important thing is that this album, which had never been released before, presents a singer/songwriter of exquisite sensibility, sharing a very personal batch of songs that were never intended for "the public" and, perhaps due to that, conjure up an intimate and gorgeous portrait of a woman's inner life.
If you are a friend of brave and intimate Folk, you will not be disappointed with this purchase.

A German actress/singer who emigrated to the States, recorded this one album and then retired to raise a family. It feels as if it was recorded at night in an empty house. Just Sibylle and her acoustic guitar left.

So beautiful, especially "Forget About". Her voice is so delicate it makes everyone else sound like they're belting their songs out!

Read the reviews of this and thought I'd buy it. Some very melancholy songs - so you have to be in the right mood. Couple of tracks very reminiscent of Leonard Cohen (female version of...)
