In the mid-1970s, Fiedel Michel were alsongside Elster Silberflug (from Heidelberg) and Liederjahn (from Hamburg) one of the leading German folk groups. On their albums, they combined dance tunes, traditional music and socially critical "Volkslieder". They were part of the folk and "Liedermacher" movement looking for new possibilities for a musical culture with a political awareness after the collaps of the 1968 student movement. In the face of political impotence, it was now time for the radical youth to give up the slogan "Gitarren in die Ecke" and to once agian let the songs do the talking. By this it meant the political song scene should not forgo its radicalism, but should adapt to the new conditions of the 1970s.
This is her first album, released on the Autogram label.
