2012 restock. A compilation featuring one of Sweden's best female singer/songwriters of the '70s. Turid became famous in the underground of Stockholm as a Swedish Buffy Saint Marie or a Lotte Lenya or a Joni Mitchell. Her voice has been described as "a thin thread of gold." She won a radio competition and was soon noticed outside the underground. She was chased by the bigger record companies but took a stand and chose Silence that just had started, and in 1971 her first record Vittras Visor hit the desks. She worked with the finest musicians around at the time, such as Kenny Håkansson (Kebnekajse), Björn Jason Lindh and Palle Danielsson. This record is half in English and half in Swedish. Silence released two more albums -- Bilder in 1973 and Tredje Dagen in 1975 before moving out to the countryside. Even if you don't understand her brilliant and poetic lyrics you can still enjoy this record and her beautiful voice and music. This release compiles the most and the best of the three albums and carefully tried to restore the sound quality. Famously referenced in the Swedish hippie-cult-classic film Together by director Lukas Moodysson, Turid represents a certain flowery apex and fans of eccentric folk vocalists such as Linda Perhacs, Vashti Bunyan, Karen Dalton & Joanna Newsom ought to investigate.
