Ame Debout is a music studio album recording by CATHERINE RIBEIRO & ALPES (Psychedelic/Space Rock/Progressive Rock) released in 1971 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. This is my favourite album by Catherine Ribeiro and Alpes. It brings back dark memories of being part of a jury at a high court in winter in 2006, travelling by train in the dark - which could, in a weird way sum up this album. It's probably the gloomiest of their albums, but is beautiful at the same time.

Titled as such to reference their previous guise as the short-lived Catherine Ribeiro + 2 Bis, 1970’s No2 is a fervent, at times remarkable first point of entry. After opening incantation ‘15 Août 1970’ and shivering prog-folk chanson ‘Silen Voy Kathy’ strike an anguished tone, 18-minute centrepiece ‘Poeme Non Equipe’ sees Ribeiro’s sprees double up as a protracted primal scream. Banshee shrieks one moment, sobbing glossolalia the next – it’s a siren call that, dreamt up in the feverish residuum of May 1968, is as much a political decree as it is an unknowable spiritual expulsion

Originally released in 1971, Ame Debout was Catherine Ribeiro's third album and the first that she recorded for the Philips label. Ribeiro's often harsh voice evokes both pain and hope, while the group les Alpes backs her with an odd sort of progressive cosmic folk, with spacy guitar and keyboards and a pulsing bongo beat on some tracks. They turn up the energy on the spirited title track that opens the record, while "Diborowska" mellows out a bit, a flowing French neo-folk song that sounds similar to Brigitte Fontaine, but with a darker melancholic sound because of Ribeiro's deeper voice.

Even as Ribeiro continued to work with Alpes, she also started doing albums under her name alone where, instead of her own material, she paid tribute to older artists. She also worked with other artists like Peter Gabriel on the 1992 record Soleil Dans l'Ombre (Sun in the Shade). By the early '80s, her output had slowed down a little
