Sybille Baier – The Colour Green

When I visited Nora in Bellingham, she introduced me (note how mature “she introduced me” sounds compared to, say, “she turned me on to”?) an enchanting cd with a great back story.

In the early 1970’s Sybille Baier recorded songs on a reel to reel tape, just her and her guitar. Decades later, her son found the tape in the attic and gave it to J. Mascis, who gave it to Orange Twin who issued The Colour Green in 2006. Since then, it’s become a cult favorite.
The story is told here.
Here’s a review from
Spin

That Nora, she’s a cool girl.
