"Recorded in the early 70s in her home on a reel-to-reel tape deck, SIBYLLE BAIERs Colour Green paints intimate portraits of lifes sad and fragile beauty.  Baier and her music appeared in the 1973 Wim Wenders film Alice in the Cities, but her recordings were never released, and only shared with family and friends. Its said that "Remember the Day," the first song she ever wrote, was inspired by a road trip to the Alps with a friend during a dark period in her youth. Upon return, Baier pulled out her reel-to-reel and preserved these intimate thoughts and feelings on tape. Though she eventually chose family and motherhood over a music career, the bare, hushed folk songs on Colour Green, first released in 2006, have elevated her to the realm of revered cult performers such as Vashti Bunyan, Nico and Bridget St. John. After an extremely limited initial pressing (copies of which have fetched large sums via online auction sites), Colour Green is finally available again on vinyl. "Its sad, at times dark and almost uncomfortably intimate, and one of the most fragile and beautiful releases this year."-Gorilla vs. Bear
