Sibylle Baier - Colour Green (2006)

Composed of songs recorded in the early 70's, this album was compiled by Sibylle's son as a gift for family members, but ended up also being passed on to a record label that decided to release it in 2006. These songs were recorded in Germany on a reel-to-reel tape machine in her home, and after she was done with these songs she more or less abandoned pursuing a singing or acting career, moving to the United States to raise a family. This album is to be released on vinyl in the next few months and she is now expected to be recording and releasing a new studio album.
I like this album, both for its music and for its feeling of being a gem rescued from being lost in time. Don't pass this by thinking this album is hippie-folk crap. It is definitely straight-forward, soft folky singing over soft folky guitar playing, but it's beautiful, peaceful, and serene, melancholy but not depressing. This is very highly recommended, especially for those of you who like 70's folk or contemporary singer/songwriter acts, but even if you don't fall into one of those categories you should check it out.

  1. I don't want to make it sound greater than it is, but I really enjoyed the album when I first heard it a couple years ago and I just re-discovered it now.
