SUZZANNE MENZEL "Goodbyes and Beginnings" PRIVATE AMBIENT SYNTH SOUL AOR LP
NEW and SEALED
Frederiksberg Records is proud to announce the first reissue of Suzanne Menzel’s 1981 album “Goodbyes and Beginnings”.
This sought-after rarity presents a blend of ambient, new-age, 60’s inspired folk music. The melancholic lyrics of singer-songwriter Suzanne Menzel are transformed by Danish New-Age pioneer, Klaus Schønning’s, futuristic soundscape. Schønning, not only produced “Goodbyes and Beginnings,” Menzel also credits him as giving her the artistic courage to self-release her first and only album.
“Goodbyes and Beginnings” sits at the cross-section of many genres. Menzel’s voice is as timeless as her heartfelt, somber lyrics. While Schønning’s synthesizer, organ and rhythm computers offer a playful contrast. The beautiful tension between them creates a fresh, unique sound and makes “Goodbyes and Beginnings” hard to categorize even today.
All songs arranged by Klaus Schønning, who also plays: Organ, synthesizer, stringmachine, clavinet, piano, accordion, melodica, slide guitar, auto harp, kalimba, rhythm-computer, percussion.
All vocals sung and arranged by Suzanne Menzel, who also plays: Acoustic Guitar (and piano on "She was a Really beautiful Lady").
