Anna Domino \ Mysteries of America + Colouring In the Edge & the Outline [LTMCD 2410]

Mysteries of America was first issued in 1990 and features 8 original songs by Anna Domino and Michel Delory, as well as a haunting cover of Isn't That So by Jesse Winchester. More acoustic than previous records, the album was recorded in New York and Brussels, with production by Anton Sanko (Suzanne Vega).

In addition, this expanded edition also features the six track mini-album Colouring In the Edge and the Outline. Released by Les Disques du Crépuscule in 1988, this set experiments with a more electronic, sequenced sound. The final bonus cut is a previously unreleased collaboration from 1987, an experimental cover of Stand Apart by The Hood.

Cover art by Benoît Hennebert. CD booklet contains liner notes.

"This is one daydream from which you shouldn't awake" (NME, 01/1991)

"An album to be relished" (Melody Maker, 01/1991)

"Repeated listenings draw out some fines tunes. Home is a classic, while Bonds of Love evokes the pure vision of Paul Brady's best albums. Every song has a fresh take, and none has a false note" (Whisperin' & Hollerin', 09/2004)

"Mysteries of America is an atmospherically lush and exquisite selection of songs that pared back the dynamics of her previous album in favour of a more stripped-down and personal approach. Latin percussion, modern European folk and chanson were the elements of choice, and these influences acted as an almost subversive comment on the albums somewhat ironic title. Here, Domino at last found herself swimming in more comfortable waters, and feelings of passion, both implicit and clear, imbued the songs with a warm femininity both evocative and sensual" (PopMatters, 10/2013)
