I know very little about the music of Sibylle Baier, but it seems that nobody really did. She only ever recorded one album, back in 1973, which only found release in 2006. How? After giving up music after one album, those recordings fell into the hands of the lead singer of Dinosaur Jr thirty years later, who passed them on to Orange Twin Records. The songs are sparse, mostly just Sibylle and her guitar. The listener should be grateful for this intimate acoustic treat, for she never expected anyone to hear these songs, especially not nearly forty years later.
