Cecilia ± - The Other Side Of This Side LP


First release on Aztlan Records is a solo album of the late Cecilia ±. We know her for her work with Angel Of The Odd.
This album is spoken word/poetry. Except for one vocals-only track 'About Death' all tracks have very diverse music as background. So that makes the album an interesting listen. Also the album lasts about 30 minutes. Long enough to keep it interesting as well. Well there is one real song on it called 'Imaginary Man'.
Her 2nd effort was a cassette-only release which is the 3rd release on Aztlan. Anyone who has it?

I remember her. My uncle use to know her back in the 80's. Thanks for posting this one.

She also released a compilation album called Nirvana in 1991. Do you have it?

I knew Cecilia for a time in the early '80s. She was a sweet, gentle soul, beautiful, and a little bit of an eccentric which I think served her music and persona well. (We experimented with the idea of playing music together but it'd never come together.) I hadn't been in touch w/ her since then so I was surprised and saddened to hear of her untimely demise and the tragic death of her young son. I can't imagine an experience more heartbreaking than losing a child.

According to her obituary she was something of a practicing Catholic, I saw no evidence of at the time. I hope her faith was able to carry her in her time of need.

Anyway, that was my story. Thank you so much for making her work available.

Best, Deiter
