Baby Dee A Book Of Songs For Anne Marie on LP
After seeing the overwhelming response to Safe Inside the Day in 2008, the peerless Baby Dee returned in 2010 with A Book of Songs For Anne Marie. What was overwhelming about the response was the pure reaction to the purity of expression in Dee's music. That dizzying sense of self is again an essential feature of this collection. While her previous album was lit with the production fire of Will Oldham and Matt Sweeney, A Book of Songs For Anne Marie glows softly with the calming presence of Maxim Moston (arranger of some standing and part of Antony and the Johnsons' touring band). In essence, this album is a prequel to Safe Inside the Day as the songs here were originally released in a different set of recordings and in a limited edition book form (150 copies!) on David Tibet's Durtro label back in 2004. However, for most listeners, this is their first outing!
