nico - minnesang


and i told you before: you can never have enough nico in your collection. this minnesong collection was released in germany in 1994 on the very obscure toccata/quedlinburg label and features songs and unsongs most of you might think you are quite familiar with. and: no climax, no punch line: you are right. any halfserious collector of nico should be aware of all of these songs in one version or an other; and as her work most often is documented with no documented evidence of conformity (who the fnord is playing guitar/drums/keyboards/bass and when was that live-session recorded andandand?) all we have is a cluster batch of versions of songs we all love. three versions of saeta for example adding up to the versions you already own and you can not tell for sure wether they are different or not from those you have heard before. and that is what i like about the unresearchable nico: sie bleibt ein rätsel und du kannst es nicht lösen. sie torkelt durch die welt wie ein offenes messer und du schneidest dich an ihr.
by way of exception i adopted the pictures and the tracklist from discogs and unfortunately i have no information to add:

01 - the line (unreleased variation on "saeta")
02 - ghenghis khan (finished version as intended by nico)
03 - saeta (live in london 1985)
04 - vegas (finished version as intended by nico)
05 - the sphinx (finished according to nico's proposals)
06 - i will be seven (unreleased studio recording)
07 - your kisses burn (written by marc almond )
08 - reich der träume (composed by lutz ulbrich)
09 - saeta (live in london 1983)
10 - purple lips (live in london 1983)
11 - nibelungen (unreleased studio recording)
12 - saeta (picadilly radio session)
13 - procession (unreleased studio recording)
14 - the end (original studio version)
15 - das lied der deutschen (original studio version)
16 - roses in the snow (unreleased studio recording)
